Linde Werdelin are watchmaker who are not only at the top of their game but have one of the firmest (tentacle-like) holds on the underwater world that there are in the luxury watch industry –
this has been beautifully illustrated in a one of one special edition of the their divers model, the Oktopus which in its own right is an incredible dive watch with its family of members boasting cases constructed from some of the most cutting-edge materials currently being used in watchmaking.
3DTP™ Carbon, ALW Alloy, Ceramic, DLC, Titanium and Rose Gold have all been used for the Oktopus whose case was once even given a special new look thanks to a world-class tattoo artist.
Today LW have turned to the extraordinary talents of Johnny Dowell a gun engraver by trade at one of Britain’s most prestigious gun engravers, who has meticulously realized by hand (in a process that took up to 100 hours) an underwater world with bubbles, coral and – well it wouldn’t be a proper Oktopus if there wasn’t a tentacle or two!
The Oktopus Double Date Rose Gold which was the base model for this special edition has three-part case construction in 18K rose gold (5N) and Titanium grade 2; with satin, polished and microbillé finishing.
It is water-resistant to 300 meters and can be transformed into an uber modern diving instrument with the attachment of the Linde Werdelin REEF dive computer. It is priced 22000CHF.
