Rev-Watch-1-43.jpg


Malaysia-based Yook Hong started his journey in the niche world of Seiko modification. His experience provided a keen understanding of the market, culminating in the creation of ALCADUS, a brand offering a premium yet accessible range of understated and elegant watches. Since 2018, ALCADUS has been a dynamic platform for showcasing his expertise and creativity. The enthusiastic support from the community has consistently driven him to create more exceptional models and designs. Each ALCADUS watch undergoes meticulous hand finishing and assembly, championing the belief that extraordinary watches should be accessible to everyone, regardless of status.



The ALCADUS Quantra is their latest Kickstarter project, and it was fully funded well before its deadline. The dial is divided into pie-shaped segments, each representing an hour, creating a visually striking and harmonious display. The 36mm x 10.5mm 316L stainless steel case features a highly polished bezel, circular brushed finish on the lugs, and media blasted finish on the case sides. The sector dials are truly timeless and are covered by a box-sapphire crystal with five layers of anti-reflective coating.

It features a regulated Hangzhou Calibre 5015A micro-rotor movement with a 42-hour power reserve. The movement is visible through the transparent screw-down case back, providing 50 meters of water resistance. Often overlooked by many brands, the leather strap is a crucial detail for ALCADUS. It is an essential part of the puzzle, embodying craftsmanship, durability, tradition, comfort, and quality. They source their straps from Tanneries Haas (owned by the Chanel Group) in France. Each of their watch straps is meticulously crafted by hand using traditional leathercraft techniques, guaranteeing longevity and ensuring a timeless piece built to last a lifetime.



The dial colors are Salmon, Silver, and Purple, and each Quantra will come with a choice of 2 Tanneries Haas straps. The price is $580 USD*, and for more information, visit their website here.
