Linde Werdelin don’t do things by half! They are marking the beginning of Autumn and reflect the colours of a Harvest Moon, as they present the Oktopus Moon with bronze and gold dial.
In a seasonal interpretation of the highly technical Oktopus family, made for divers and created for the Danish navy special forces, this piece features a five-layer skeletonised dial in bronze and gold, complemented by rose gold satin finish hands.
The Oktopus Moon features the original in-house complication, the Moonphase developed over a decade ago, is a striking testament to the brand’s continued focus on diving and skiing, or the sea and the mountains. At night, the photorealistic moons enable the diver to track the development of the moon phases and with that the impact on tides and ambient light and thereby plan the optimal time for night dives.
“Exploring the warm hues of bronze and gold against the hard titanium case was an easy choice for autumn. Bronze signifies strength and reliability which chimes well with the construction of the Oktopus, a strong and elegant piece.”
Jorn Werdelin, Founder, Linde Werdelin
