Linde Werdelin welcomes a new member to its Oktopus family of diving watches: the Oktopus MoonLite – White. This timepiece comes in a case made of ALW, originally an advanced aerospace material, which is repurposed by Linde Werdelin for use in its timepieces. In this timepiece Linde Werdelin has incorporated colourless ALW which has been subjected to a 25 micrometre treatment, creating a protective layer and making it twice the strength of steel while remaining half the weight of titanium.
Tested for a water resistance up to 300 meters, the Oktopus MoonLite – White features a white ceramic bezel with circular satin finishing that both contrasts with, and complements, the ALW case, while bridging the gap between white rubber strap and the satin-finished silver-white dial to enhance the holistic three-dimensional design experience. The five level skeleton dial in white shade boasts a moonphase complication with photorealistic moon phases hand-drawn by Morten Linde, creative head of Linde Werdelin.
Limited to 59 individually numbered pieces worldwide, the Oktopus MoonLite – White comes fitted with a titanium screw down crown in circular satin and microbillé finishing and engraved with an octopus icon.
The scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass protects the face of the timepiece. Case back of the timepiece is also made with colourless ALW featuring a multi-layer octopus motif, satin finish on outer rim and centre. It also features limited edition number laser engraved from 1 to 59.
