Linde Werdelin’s new Oktopus Moonphase is powered by a Frédéric Piguet movement (caliber 1150) and with a moonphase complication built by renowned Danish-born independent watchmaker Svend Andersen. The complication depicts seven phases of the moon with photorealistic Super Luminova discs. The moonphase complication is built on the date function to also provide a countdown to the next full moon, read on the moonphase dial.
The titanium case features a rose gold bezel and dial details. A sapphire crystal case back reveals the Frédéric Piguet movement and the rotor bearing the LW and AG (Andersen Genève) logos. The watch has been tested to a depth of 888 meters and the helium escape valve at 9 o’clock ensures the watch endures the pressure during resurface time.
The Oktopus Moonphase is limited to 29 pieces, connoting to the days before the next full moon, and priced at $21,700. It will be available for delivery in the fall 2010 on LindeWerdelin.com or from any LW authorized retailer.
