Linde Werdelin adds moon phases to Oktopus family


Collection of divers’ watches enhanced with stylish new complication.

Luxury sports watch maker, Linde Werdelin, has added a moon phase complication to the latest time piece in the Oktopus collection of divers’ sport watches.

The Octopus Moonphase is powered by a Frederic Piguet automatic movement. The new complication, created by Danish-born Svend Andersen, depicts seven phases of the moon in miniature, illuminated, photographic quality.

“Linde Werdelin’s launch of its first complication is an important step for us. We are very pleased to continue our collaboration with Svend Andersen and also start using a F. Piguet movement for our watches” says Jorn Werdelin managing director and co-founder of Linde Werdelin.

Divers watches typically steer clear of complexity, favouring the legibility required underwater. But Linde Werdelin says that moon phases are important to divers who like to dive at night under the best possible light conditions.

With the titanium case size of 46 x 49mm, there is no shortage of space for a clear, readable dial. The watch is resistant to a depth of 888 metres.

Only 29 Oktopus Moonphase watches will be created. They will be available from September 2010 priced at €17,400.
