Based on their earlier Oktopus II Moon, the hand-engraved Linde Werdelin Oktopus Moon Tattoo Limited Edition strongly reminds me of vintage pocket watches that often had their cases lavishly decorated with floral motifs, birds, dragons, and exotic animals. Limited to just 59 pieces, this particular timekeeper, however, takes the idea to a whole new level.
The mildly refreshed Linde Werdelin Oktopus II Titanium Double Date collection now comes in a flashy new color of lipstick red. The color is not limited to just the dial and the thick rubber strap, but also decorates the gaskets between eight steel screws and the black ceramic bezel of the piece. And if you get tired of so much red on your wrist, the rubber band can be easily swapped for a more discrete black textile strap that comes free of charge.
The fairly fresh Oktopus family of ruggedized divers has recently been updated with a new Linde Werdelin Oktopus II Double Date with a Big Date indicator at 12 hours. Compared to the concept model that was first revealed almost half a year ago at the Baselwolrd 2012 trade show, the production-ready version sports a number of enhancements that slightly increase its legibility, but somehow detract from the grim appearance of the original.
Linde Werdelin, a young watchmaking brand of Scandinavian origin that builds and assembles their wristwatches in Switzerland, has just sent us a press release presenting their new take on the relatively fresh SpidoSpeed series of skeletonized chronographs. Called Linde Werdelin SpidoSpeed Anthracite DLC, the new (or rather “refreshed”) automatic chrono comes with the same scratch-resistant DLC treatment that now features a new shade of, um, black. Shouldn’t they have introduced a whole new collection of DLC-treated watches and called them something like, err, Fifty Shades of Black?
The Swiss-based luxury watchmaker of Scandinavian descent has updated the 2009 Linde Werdelin 3-Timer GMT with a new material/color combination.
