Today, Linde Werdelin presents to you the Oktopus Double Date Carbon Green, a sporty and refreshing take on the Oktopus dive watch. Featuring champagne gold detailing, it revitalizes the Linde Werdelin collection of revolutionary diving timepieces for an active lifestyle. A numbered limited series of just 88 pieces has been individually crafted using 3DTP™ —Three-Dimensional Thin Ply—, the first ever carbon technology conceived for Swiss watchmaking, engineered to sculpt the iconic and angular Oktopus case by layering thin layers of carbon into a mold to give the finished product it's ultra-unique appearance with those horizontal lines, just like the rings inside a tree trunk.
Based on a Dubois Dépraz movement customized by Linde Werdelin, the double date complication that sits at 12 o’clock on the dial is highly skeletonized and treated with TIN, to give the date wheels a green shine that further accentuates the green details throughout the timepiece.
Starting today, Friday 16th January, the Oktopus Double Date Carbon Green will be available exclusively at the world-renowned Parisian concept store Colette, followed by a global release on Monday January 26th, 2015.
