Staudt Prelude Chronometrie Mechanical timepiece Prelude classic dress watch

Reference: P426.223-A02

Prelude Automatic. It has three hands, a very thin case with a solid 18 carat gold bezel, mechanical movement and you wear it around your wrist. Sounds pretty much like the essence of a wristwatch, right? Practically speaking, nowadays you hardly need it, but it is a piece of jewellery that reflects your personal story. Make it yours by personalizing it, with your personal text on the dial for example.

Staudt Prelude Autamatic side view case mechanical watch

Super. Thin.

This is the thinnest case we've made so far. With its 8.8mm height, it is extraordinarily slim for an automatic timepiece. It is crafted from stainless steel with a solid 18 carat gold bezel. The case is fully polished, however, the sides are manually brushed horizontally.

Miraculous mechanics. Sometimes keeping things as they are is a very good idea. No batteries, no notifications, no smart functions. Just some springs, gears and screws. A timeless technique.

Applied numerals. Silver-plated dial. Date window in the colour of the dial. An understated design. 18ct. rose gold plated hands that end exactly in the middle of the minute track. Hands that light like a torch. And much more... Oh boy, we love making watches.

Into the mind of the maker. This chronograph is an evolution of the first watch I've made back in 2014. I've made my initial design more appealing with the usage of applied numerals and several finishing techniques in the dial and movement. The result is a timepiece with a timeless design.

Into the mind of the maker. The Prelude Automatic is the thinnest watch I ever made, it easily hides underneath your cuff. It has a very simplistic look, however, the subtle milled lines underneath the applied numerals give a silky finish. 


We offer a dozen of variations. Let us make it yours.

We'll not give it away easily. You will get your timepiece packed in an impressive box that lasts a lifetime, which you can convert into a collectors box for four watches.
