Ikepod, a brand renowned for its unwavering dedication to design excellence, has consistently placed aesthetics at the forefront of its philosophy. The debut of the Duopod, powered by dependable Japanese quartz movements, exemplifies this core belief. Leveraging quartz technology enables Ikepod to concentrate on delivering a captivating design without imposing the financial burden of a costly mechanical movement on its discerning clientele.
The Duopod boasts a refined and graceful design, featuring a more compact case size, measuring 42mm in width, which appears even more understated at 39mm when worn on the wrist. The Duopod is powered by a Miyota quartz movement, which meticulously orchestrates the movement of the hour and minute hands. This deliberate design choice underscores the brand’s commitment to allowing the iconic elliptical case design to shine as the central focal point.
Ikepod has also keenly observed the shifting trend towards more adaptable and versatile case sizes. The Duopod enthusiastically embraces this evolution with its restrained yet captivating design approach. The unmistakable UFO-shaped logo graces the dial, while the “exotic quail” emblem, reminiscent of past Hemipodes, embellishes the crown. All cases are meticulously crafted from 316L steel and adorned with brushed finishes, staying true to the original designs that have cemented Ikepod’s reputation.
Remaining true to its heritage, the brand continues to offer integrated straps, maintaining its allegiance to the same Swiss-made straps featured on the original Ikepod timepieces. Furthermore, a pin buckle has been introduced for added convenience. Ikepod preserves its distinctive DNA by retaining integrated lugs, affording wearers the flexibility to choose between vintage Swiss-made straps or the newly introduced rubber straps paired with a pin buckle.
Above all else, Ikepod places a premium on delivering exceptional value for money. The brand remains steadfast in its commitment to utilizing top-tier components for hands, dial, case, and materials such as the silicone strap. In a landscape where aesthetics and functionality converge, the Duopod serves as a resounding testament to Ikepod’s unswerving dedication to both form and function.
