Stefan Kudoke calls his masterful Kraken timepiece the KudOktopus, which I guess is acceptably clever. I would have called it the KudoKraken though. Easier to pronounce. Sounds kind of like pseudo-Kraken, which an ornate rosegold and rhodium Kraken living inside a watch basically is. And "Kudo" rings close to "Cujo", another terror-wielding mythical beast. But I suppose since Stefan Kudoke made the watch's intricate inner workings of gears and screws, it's OK if he names it too.

The KudOktopus case is stainless steel, 42mm in diameter, and has sapphire crystal on the top and back. Its mechanical movement requires manual winding to keep its tempered blue Breguet steel hands moving smoothly. The strap and buckle are Louisiana alligator or calf leather and stainless steel.
