Linde Werdelin launches the Oktopus II Moon Black and Gold
Linde Wederlin has recently delivered two new forms of the Oktopus II with a Moon Phase sign. The Oktopus II Moon Black and the Oktopus II Moon Gold are the replacements of the primary Oktopus Moonphase that was presented in 2010 .
The Oktopus II Moon includes a photograph practical moon that pivots over a layer with SuperLuminova, so the moon stage is obvious during the more obscure hours of the day and appears as though we see the moon during a reasonable night.
Early 2012 we previously showed you the Linde Werdelin Oktopus II Double Date, that includes an enormous twofold date ( check the Oktopus II Double Date here ). The moon period of Linde Werdelin’s Oktopus II Moon makes a full revolution in multi day. This doesn’t make it the most exact moon stage sign, yet it looks very good. The full moon is constantly shown with a white imprint noticeable through the lower dial. Numerals 11, 10, 9, shown somewhere in the range of 1 and 2 o’clock permit a more exact track of the lunar cycle.
The black and gold form together will be restricted to 59 numbered pieces; 12 bits of the Oktopus II Moon Gold and 47 bits of the Oktopus II Moon Black. The last comes in a full DLC titanium case with an artistic bezel and striking blue enumerating on the dial. The gold rendition comes in a rose gold and titanium DLC case with ceramic bezel.
The dial comprises of three skeletonised layers, giving the dial a decent profundity. At the 6 o’clock position lays the moon plate that turns clockwise. A photograph sensible moon was silk-printed and moves over a SuperLuminova; the daily sky seems blue on the Oktopus II Moon Black and earthy colored on the Oktopus II Moon Gold. The second skeletonised layer or lower dial bears a roundabout Côtes de Genève while the upper and third part is skeletonised and highlights the brand’s logo, files and hour markers at 3, 9 and 12 o’clock. The hour markers and hands are additionally treated with radiant material, to improve readability.
We know the case from the Oktopus II and it is likewise a five-section case development fixing a titanium internal cylinder that secures the development and the dial inside from water entrance and its enemy of destructive materials. The development is fixed in the chamber by a titanium DLC screw in back-case including the notable octopus. There’s no notice of the development inside, anyway it’s not the very Frederic Piguet type that was utilized for the principal Oktopus Moonphase .
The Oktopus II Moon Gold comes at a cost of CHF 27,000 (ex VAT) and the Oktopus II Moon Black retails for CHF 12,500 (ex VAT). The two models will be accessible from February 2013. For more data you can visit the Linde Werdelin site .
