Heartbeat: Linde Werdelin Oktopus Moon Tattoo
by Ian Skellern
In just over 10 years, Linde Werdelin has established itself as a serious player in the highish-end sports watch category, with very credible claims in the domains of skiing and diving models.
For those looking for a dressier casual approach, Linde Werdelin branches out of its more casual titanium-encased timepieces, which are often brightly colored, to offer gold models. A perfect example, the red gold Oktopus Moon is sure to look as good with a suit as with jeans.
For those additionally looking for exclusivity, there is the Oktopus Moon Tattoo. This features Linde Werdelin’s in-house moon phase complication, which not only displays the present state of the moon, but also past and future moon phase transitions.
What really makes this timepiece special, though, is the intricate engraving of a hand-drawn octopus all over the top, sides and even back of the case. The multiple depths of the engraving add extra richness to what looks like a “tattoo” . . . hence the name. www.lindewerdelin.com
