The Linde Werdelin Oktopus Crazy Universe timepiece is the second collaboration with master engraver Johnny Dowell and boasts a full-case engraving inspired by the universe. The watch is presented in an edition limited to only 59 units. The case is made of titanium and decorated with the drawings of the sun, moons, shooting stars, and various planets - including Earth, Mars, Saturn and Pluto. The case measures 44 by 46 mm and is mounted onto a black rubber strap, secured on the wrist with a deployment clasp. The watch is delivered with three additional straps – in black, blue and green. This model is equipped with a bespoke LW movement that contains 23 jewels and works at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour). The movement is wound automatically and builds up power reserve of 44 hours. The five-layer skeletonized dial features central hours, minutes and seconds, and photorealistic moon phase indicator (the red “0” indicates current moon phase and the blue numbers indicate past and future moon phases). The watch is water-resistant to 300 meters.
This timepiece is offered in a pre-owned condition and includes a gift box and the manufacturer’s papers.
