We would like to introduce you to the newest addition to our Praeludium collection: the Praeludium Chronograph. Yvo Staudt laid the foundation of this collection to escape from being lonely during his classical music studies at the Conservatoire in Italy. Soon after he started working on the timepiece we are now introducing – almost four years later. The watch combines the typical clean design of the Praeludium collection with the sportiness, robustness, and functionality of a chronograph

The beating heart of the Praeludium Chronograph
The beating heart the Praeludium Chronograph is a Swiss automatic chronograph-caliber with 48 hours of power reserve. It houses 27 jewels and runs with 28.800 beats per hour. By using the movement of your wrist the caliber is able to wind it self. The movement is decorated with perlage, heat blued screws and is coated with rhodium. The movements rotor is decorated with circular Cote de Geneve and plated with 18 carat rose gold. With great pride our crest of Staudt has been engraved on the rotor of this mechanical piece of art.
This is a heavy fella
Our new milanaise bracelet is heavy. The steel wires are robust and woven very delicately. Can you handle the weight of our milanaise bracelet?
The colour of the outer ring of the dials in our Praeludium collection are build in 12 layers. Therefor we use an century old lithography machine, to make Staudt blue. The outer ring of the dial is spray painted by hand.
