This is what an LW Oktopus BluMoon looks like after artist and expert engraver, Johnny Dowell has been let loose on it for up to 100 hours.
Like Linde Werdelin’s previous collaboration project with Johnny, the Oktopus REEF, he has taken an existing Linde Werdelin piece and transformed it with a full-case engraving.
Whereas the Oktopus Reef depicted a charming underwater scene, the Oktopus Crazy Universe looked to the stars for inspiration.
The result, a whimsical space theme adorning the Grade Titanium case with drawings of; the Sun, various planets, including Earth, on the six o’clock facet, Mars, Saturn and Pluto, moons and shooting stars.
The space theme is derived from the Oktopus BluMoon’s moonphase complication, bringing the scene to life. Like the Octopus Reef, the Oktopus Crazy Universe is a one off. It is priced 22000CHF.
