Linde Werdelin Oktopus II Double Date Review

Basel 2012 - Linde Werdelin Oktopus II Double Date Review

  Linde Werdelin has a new Oktopus for 2012, the Oktopus II Double Date. This watch will most certainly be many a watch aficionados grail watch. Not only aesthetically a great looking watch, it is the ultimate luxury dive watch when used in in conjunction with Linde Werdelin’s Reef Dive Computer. 
  The dial is precision cut and resembles that of an octopus (oktopus in this case). The double date windows are featured predominately just below 12 o’clock. The Oktopus II uses a unique five piece case construction to ensure it’s water resistance of 300m. Under the “hood” the watch uses a caliber 14580 automatic movement in collaboration Dubois Depraz. The case back has a fantastic engraved octopus created by Morten Linde himself, the crown as well has an octopus. One of the many great aspects of this dive watch is the manageable size coming in at 44mm. The Oktopus II will be offered in three variants in a series of 88 worldwide. It will be available in titanium/ceramic, titanium/titanium DLC/with yellow accents, and finally rose gold/titanium. This is a hard watch not to like if you have the money to spend, starting point over 9K.
