Time is precious but none more so than the latest watch from the stable of Linde Werdelin. To mark Midsummer, they have recently launched the aptly named Oktopus II Double Date Titanium Red.
Oktopus II Double Date Red
Renowned for their sporting and diving timepieces, the company are making their own bold movements in the watch sector. Established just seven years ago, they have blended together their own dual specialities, blending the finest Swiss engineering with exquisite Danish design.
With all of their bespoke watches hand made in Geneva, Switzerland, Linde Werdelin have produced an exclusive to coincide with the recent 4th of July celebrations.
With only 88 individual pieces manufactured, this particular horological beauty is as exclusive as a Wimbledon after party. Hats off to Andy Murray though…and in temperatures reaching almost 50 degrees on court!
Anyone for tennis
Now that the heat is well and truly off the Scot, let’s delve a little deeper into The Oktopus II Double Date. After causing a stir at Baselworld 2012, this red model is also available in three additional colours; Titanium Blue, Titanium Yellow, Titanium Red, as well as Rose Gold Titanium.
So what are the main features? The titanium colour dial is a marvel to behold whilst the bezel is black ceramic which offers a striking contrast to the dial.
“The completion of the Reef and development of the Oktopus II case construction has granted us an unrivalled diving expertise and further confidence to develop a contemporary dive watch while enjoy experimenting with innovative combinations of materials and colours.” proclaimed Morten Linde.
The actual case does not disappoint either thanks to its maximum water resistance that’s as secure as getting into Fort Knox! This has been fully enhanced with an anti-corrosive agent due to the materials used in production.
With its central movement chamber, satin finish and turning bezel that records how long you have been under water, the Oktopus II Double Date Titanium Red is all set to make a splash of its own.
Waterproof up to 300m
Check out the etched octopus logo at the 3 o’clock mark not to mention the case back with an octopus sketch drawn by the great Morten Linde.
Other highlights on the Oktopus II Double Date feature the double layer dial with a Cote de Genève dial that looks similar to an aquatic rippling effect. The 44mm face is more than generous on the wrist and can be taken to depths of 300 metres if you are feeling a little nautical.
Make a date
The red strap is made entirely of rubber with an interchangeable option and for those concerned about power reserves, fear not as this model packs in 44 hours’ worth.
So if you are finally enjoying the hot weather that has come to the UK shores, this watch is more than likely to impress your friends over a glass of Pimms or at a long and lazy summer barbeque.
Time for Pimms
The Oktopus II Double Date is priced at 10,200CHF excluding VAT which is just a smidgen over £7,500. Now is definitely the time to invest in such a beautiful piece of arm candy.
