The fact that Morten Linde has a background as a designer clearly shows, as everything perfectly matches together. This Oktopus Moon Carbon replica is a perfect example for the modern Linde Werdelin timepiece. It comes in an over-engineered case made of carbon, the skeletonized dial shows bits and pieces of the movement and a photo realistic moon phases disc. When it comes to design, there is not a single part that makes me frown, everything fits, down to the brown rubber strap.
Let’s look at the layered carbon case of the Linde Werdelin Oktopus Moon Carbon replica, it really feels very light. Carbon has a relatively low surface hardness, other than ceramics for example.The carbon used in watch material ensures that the case is very strong and weights highlight, but it does not be scratch proof.The case has a beautiful finish, which is a combination of satin, polished and microbillé finishing. As always, the case is able to be used for the Reef add-on module for professional use under water. The Linde Werdelin Oktopus Moon Carbon replica is by no means a small watch measuring in 44mm width, it is very comfortable to wear due to the low weight and the soft rubber strap.
Linde Werdelin used ceramics for the bezel with the scratch resistance. As the bezel is basically – besides the dial – something you look at a few times per day – or even more – it is a good idea to make it scratch resistant.The bezel is in a satin finish on top with polished facets. The screws used to mount the bezel to the case are made of titanium.
The case back of the Linde Werdelin Oktopus Moon Carbon replica has no sapphire crystal to observe the movement as you might have expected when you look at the skeletonize dial, but a titanium back with an engraving of an octopus.
