Staudt Praeludium Hand Wound
Nice to see that Yvo Staudt’s his sincere love and fascination for watches has transformed and materialized into a brand, Staudt Watches Twente, and real watches you can feel and wear. The first two Praeludiums, his first step into the world of watch producing brands, are sold out, but now there’s a successor in the shape of the Staudt Praeludium Hand Wound.
The model looks modest, but it is also a big step forward compared to the first two primal Praeludiums. The new model is more refined, better balanced and also more interesting from a technical perspective. The used hand-wound movement is based on a traditional pocket watch movement, and is equipped with a swan-neck regulator; a detail which shows that Staudt is willing to go the extra mile to build a solid reputation as a serious watch manufacturer. Another striking detail is the fact that the movement is 18-carat rose gold plated. And since Yvo Staudt is a perfectionist utmost care is given to the colours and layout of the dials (available in Staudt Blue, Arctic Ivory and Midnight Black ) and the Italian handmade alligator leather strap.
