Linde Werdelin to Unveil the Oktopus II Moon at GTE

Linde Werdelin will soon unveil two new superb creations at the upcoming Geneva Time Exhibition (GTE). The show will take place between 22-25 January, and we are sure that it will amaze us all again with exquisite creations signed by the world’s most famous and most adored watchmakers. Among the many wonders that we’ll see at the exhibition, these two will definitely make an impression on moon phase complication fans.

Called Oktopus II Moon, the watches are based on the Oktopus II, which was unveiled last year at Basel. They feature the famous in-house moon phase complication with photo-realistic representations of Earth’s natural satellite. With water resistance of up to 300 meters, the timepieces are available in Black and Gold versions, limited to only 59 units.

This is not a randomly chosen number, but a specifically selected one, as it represents the number of days in which two lunar cycles are completed (one cycle takes 29 days and a half). Each timepiece features an individual number: numbers 1 to 12 for the Gold versions, while numbers 13 to 59 for the Black versions.

So what exactly are these watches made of? The Black edition sports a full DLC titanium case, blue hands, and black ceramic bezel. The more luxurious Gold edition features a titanium DLC case with irresistible rose gold detailing. The first will be priced at about $13,800, while the latter will cost some $30,000.
