    The very first Staudt watch is a fact! During his studies at a conservatory, Yvo Staudt designed his vision of the perfect watch. Only one such watch was ever made. The dial contains a printing error. The sub-dial features three numbers, 60, 20 and 30, although the latter should have been 40.

    After watch lovers inquired whether Yvo’s first watch was for sale, development began on the first Praeludium Hand Wound. In total, 45 examples of this titanium watch were made, five of which with a skeleton movement.

    In September 2015, the current Praeludium collection was introduced. The collection comprised the Hand Wound and the Automatic, both

    available in three colours: Staudt blue, ivory and black. We developed our own movement for the Praeludium Hand Wound, based on the Unitas movement.

    Yvo met the world-renowned engraver Jochen Benzinger. The two of them got on well and decided to work together. The result is the Praeludium

    Guilloche, a solid-gold watch on which the silver dial is decorated with Guilloche entirely by hand. This watch has been limited edition to only 25 examples.

    A project with a long preparation time of almost four years finally comes to fruition: the chronograph is added to the Praeludium collection! A watch

    that combines the collection’s classic appearance with the sportiness and functionality of a chronograph.
