Linde Werdelin debuts a new case material by unveiling their first all-in-house case that pioneered 3-Dimensional Thin Ply Carbon AKA 3DTP™.
Weighing only 60 grams, the Octopus Moon 3DTP™ is now the lightest model produced by Linde Werdelin.
It weighs a total of two grams less than their Speedolite 3DTP™, making it the ideal companion for all your aquatic and underwater exploits – in this case it can reach depths of 300 meters.
LW’s proprietary 3DTP™ carbon is layered in sheets to ensure maximum lightness and durability, and provides a convenient Swiss movement.
Setting a new standard for the LW Octopus collection going forward, the bezel has been refined and is further integrated into the case, sitting at an angle towards the outer case.
The watch’s 5-layer skeletonized dial has a rehot and top layer with a circular satin finish, while its hands are titanium colored with a satin finish and luminova.
The lower dial deck is a circular Côte de Genève dial with large numerals, 3, 9, 12, in blue luminova and cool gray hour and minute indexes.
Meanwhile the bespoke movement features LW’s famous in-house photorealistic moonface complication, which was originally developed in 2009 with Svend Andersen of renowned Danish master watchmaker Andersen Genève.
The watch is delivered on a blue rubber strap. MSRP £16,000! On the plus side sterling is currently the weakest it has been against the greenback since 1985!
Thoughts? LW continues to amaze us with their unique take on the moon-phase diver; A masterpiece technically and aesthetically. But what do you think?
