Is your newest Linde Werdelin Oktopus II Double Date Titanium Red a luxury sports watch or a professional digital instrument for scuba-diving? Much like all Linde Werdelin’s watches, it depends on how you use it.
The Oktopus II Dual Date Titanium Red is the Most Recent incarnation of this Oktopus II Double Date, which launched last year. A numbered series of 88 pieces, the most recent model includes a Dubois Depreaz 14580 movement with 44 hour power reserve, laser-cut dual date wheels at 12 o’clock and Linde Werdelin’s trademark five-part case construction, just like the original. Contrary to the 2012 versions in blue, yellow and titanium and rose gold, which have black dials, Linde Werdelin’s most up-to-date timepiece has a pure titanium dial with red accents and an interchangeable red rubber strap.
The young watch manufacturer has a novel method of timekeeping. Founders Morten Linde and Jorn Werdelin have made a niche for themselves using their exceptionally crafted sports watches that, when required, may be combined with a professional electronic instrument to turn them into ski and dive computers. When you’re an off-piste skiier and are taken by surprise by bad weather, causing you to ski off a cliff, even as Werdelin did in 1996, this kind of distinction is vital. That is how the idea for a watch that may be transformed to a digital device came about.
Linde Werdelin’s new Oktopus II Double Date Titanium Red is fully compatible with all The Reef – designed in-house and among the most advanced dive computers in the world – which is currently available in red. Just join the Reef for your timepiece and you’re able to monitor all critical information when you are below water via detectors, a sophisticated low-power multi MPU system, an innovative 3-axis compass and alarm systems.
