Here we have a 2020 Ikepod Duopod Midnight Blue Quartz D008-SI-LB with a 42mm brushed stainless steel case, this design is a favourite of their designer Emmanuel Gueit. The soft rounded edges create a cushion on the wrist for a comfortable fit with a lug-to-lug length of 42mm and a case thickness of 15.5mm giving the watch an impressive wrist presence and on the right side is a slightly recessed crown. An AR-coated sapphire crystal sits above a stunning sunburst dark blue dial, the outer minute chapter ring with applied hourly indexes surrounds this futuristic dial that plays with the light as you rotate your wrist. Sculpted hands complete this striking timepiece, at 12 o’clock with the IKEPOD motif. On the reverse is a screw-down case back, inside a Miyota Quartz. The watch comes fitted on a 23mm IKEPOD black silicone strap and the watch comes with its IKEPOD presentation box and paperwork.
As many of you will know I am a huge fan of Ikepod having sold a few vintage models and even owned one of these modern Duopods myself for a while, they are fantastic and really bring the charm of Ikepod to the wrist of many at a far more affordable price point. If you have been wanting to explore Ikepod, this is a great place to start without breaking the bank.
Swiss businessman Oliver Ike and designer Marc Newson founded IKEPOD in 1994, Marc Newson's designs have influenced modern watch innovation over the years, with his use of shape and function. Producing exclusive limited numbers and using Swiss movements, cases and dials. During the 1990s and early 2000s, they were very productive and financially secure or so they thought, unfortunately, due to the dot-com bubble bursting in a dramatic fashion they filed for bankruptcy in 2003. The company was sold to the Perficio Group, which was unable to produce a single watch and also filed for bankruptcy in 2005. The company tried again in 2008 to reform under Marc Newson but sadly he left IKEPOD in 2012 and the company dissolved into memory. During this period of inactivity, a group of watch enthusiasts and businessmen decided to once again raise IKEPOD from the ashes. Purchasing the brand in 2017 they quickly went to work to relaunch. Spending time in design and development producing prototypes, and finally deciding on two model lines. Taking the brand to Kickstarter to attract interest and well-needed funding. IKEPOD today makes their watches in Hong Kong. Using Miyota movements. Their designs are the creation of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore designer Emmanuel Gueit.
