Linde Werdelin – Oktopus Nord and SpidoLite Nord

Linde Werdelin expands the brand’s Nord collection by presenting the Oktopus Nord and the SpidoLite Nord.

Linde Werdelin - Oktopus Nord and SpidoLite Nord

Both watches are inspired by the dark blue changing colours of the North Sea’s deep waters. The black/blue fumé dials on these two mirror image pieces feature varied gradations of blue and black.

The dial is surrounded by a sandblasted, highly anti corrosive, titanium grade-2 case. Each piece can be paired with a range of straps, including the brand’s natural rubber strap, all now consisting of 30% recycled rubber and representing the brand’s continuous move towards using the most sustainable materials.
