Description

OKTOPUS MOON TATTOO, LIMITED TO 59 PIECES WORLDWIDE IS A UNIQUE STATE-OF-THE-ART TIMEPIECE.

The Inspiration

Presently, Linde Werdelin is the sole Swiss watchmaking company retaining a true understanding of the sea and diving universes. Having invented the Reef, the first functional and modern diving accessory for the way we dive today.

Linde Werdelin’s creative mind, Morten Linde explains, ‘the marriage between modern thinking and traditional craftsmanship resonates throughout an LW timepiece. The Oktopus Moon Tattoo is the perfect balance of contemporary art, technology and innovation; transporting poetry and imagination into the world of time keeping”.

Due to the complexity of building the case, movement and dial, Linde Werdelin has challenged the ability of some of Switzerland’s finest craftsmen and succeeded in pushing the limit of what is possible, achieving such ornamental and revolutionary masterwork.

Oktopus Moon Tattoo is an exclusive series of 59 pieces. The limited number signifies two moon cycles of 29.5 days each, before the moon returns to the same point on the celestial sphere. Moon phase complication is an ideal function to plan your night dives.

Case

The engraving on the solid 18K rose gold case has been executed at different depths to create a three dimensional effect; an extremely challenging job resulting in a unique masterpiece.

We introduced the Oktopus series at Basel 2012 with a five-part case construction, which seals the titanium inner cylinder protecting the movement and the dial from water. Selective materials such as rose gold, ceramic and titanium have been implemented to guarantee superb anti-corrosiveness.

The entire surface is subsequently treated with microbillé, followed by a gentle hand satin finish. A firm black ceramic bezel seals protects the entire case. The movement is sealed in the chamber by a titanium DLC screw in back-case featuring the iconic hand-drawn octopus.

Complication and dial

Oktopus Moon Tattoo takes Linde Werdelin on a further challenge since the launch of Oktopus Moon in January 2013, uniting both the in-house complication and a newly designed dial.
Oktopus Moon Tattoo complication displays luminous, imaginary and hand-drawn moons-phases on its dial. Each moon is drawn and printed several times and delicately inlayed inside the pierced disk one by one. As the moon moves clockwise through its monthly cycle, more of its surface is illumined.
The dial consists of multiple skeletonised layers, conveying an immediate depth to the watch. On the lower part lays the moon disk; a metallic cut out surface carrying each luminous moon.
The upper dial is skeletonised. Featuring three diamond-cut hands, it bears a beautifully engraved hand-drawn octopus in the centre. All indices are deliberately luminous to enhance readability. The full moon is always indicated with a red mark visible through the lower dial. Numerals 11, 10, 9, displayed between 1 and 2 o’clock allow a more precise track of the lunar cycle.
“In-house complication, painstaking engraving, precious case materials...these are just the technicalities. We wanted a really cool watch. Oktopus Moon Tattoo is out of the ordinary,” says Morten Linde.
