LINDE WERDELIN retains a vast knowledge of the diving universe, thanks to the development of the Reef, its proprietary diving instrument. The decision to have the moon phase complication, on a divers watch, originally came with the first model launched in 2010. Jorn Werdelin explains, “moonlight creates the perfect conditions for afterhour sports activities and particularly diving. More people these days enjoy sports under the full moon. One can plan their next diving trip by checking when the next full moon is going to be, then clip the Reef for a safe dive.”
There is a fascinating aspect about the moon and its relation between man and time throughout history. “Originally the moon’s influence on men’s lives has always been highly impactful, moving oceans, moods and inspirations, making it critical to keep track of its phases. This study led to the creation of our modern calendar, allowing a wider understanding of the past and demonstrating a tight connection with time offering LINDE WERDELIN watchmakers an additional impulse to developing this complication,” says Morten Linde.
The Oktopus II Moon takes LINDE WERDELIN on a further challenge since the launch of its original moonphase dive watch. Oktopus II Moon’s complication displays the existing phase of the moon on its dial, Hand painted as the moon moves clockwise through its monthly cycle, more of its surface is illumined.
