LINDE WERDELIN, the Danish -Swiss watch brand renowned for crafting functional and tech timepieces with attachable digital instruments for skiing and diving, is introducing Oktopus II Double Date Titanium Red with new features and subtle details on the dial. Limited to only 88 pieces it is available immediately via brand’s retail partners around the world.
Firstly introduced at Basel World 2012, Oktopus II Double Date comes in a striking red and titanium colour dial with red, black and luminent details; matching a newly released interchangeable red rubber strap. The dial’s titanium colour is a newness implemented to heighten the finishing and enhance the contrast between the red particulars and the black ceramic bezel while conceiving further depth. This is the latest addition to the Oktopus Family of contemporary dive watches featuring the artistic calendar double wheel.
The dial of Oktopus II Double Date is built in two layers. The lower layer is made with a circular Cote de Genève dial to give the effect of water ripples. Two laser-cut red wheels at 11 and 1 o’clock are powered by the big calendar complication.
Titanium colour is introduced for the first time on the dial of Oktopus II Double Date, to best highlight the finishing and the contrast between the red details and the black ceramic bezel while conceiving further depth to its widely open dial. Bearing the LINDE WERDELIN logo and indexes 3, 6 and 9 in superluminova, together with the big calendar wheels, the upper dial reveals the icon of an octopus.
