By TLex Linde Werdelin are celebrating the first 'New Moon' of 2013 in style with the release of the new Oktopus II Moon in Black or Gold.
The 'Moon' complication is the first complication that has been entirely conceived, developed and produced in-house by Linde Werdelin, unlike that of the 2010 Oktopus Moonphase watch, a stunner in its on right, which was built by master watchmaker Sven Anderson.
The Oktopus II Moon displays the existing phase of the moon on its dial in a photo-realistic way, just as you see it in the sky. As the moon moves clockwise through its monthly cycle, more of its surface is illuminated.
Each watch case has been individually crafted in Titanium or Rose Gold and finished with a hand satin finish and microbillé. It is fitted with a black ceramic bezel inlay to offer superb scratch resistance.
The watch is based on the Oktopus II DOUBLE DATE model that was launched at Basel 2012 with a water-resistance of 300m.
Consisting of a five-part construction, which seals a Titanium inner cylinder that protects the movement. The case back is finely engraved with an octopus drawing created by Morten Linde. The crown is signed with an engraving an octopus icon.
The new Oktopus II Moon watches will be officially unveiled in Geneva between the 22nd and 25th of January 2013. They will be released in two Limited Editions; one in Black, limited to 47 pieces and costing 12'500CHF and one in Gold costing 27'000CHF.
