Oktopus MoonLite – White

COLOURLESS ALW REFLECTS ITS SURROUNDINGS WITH A SUBTLE GLOW: AN IRIDESCENT CAMOUFLAGE

The case in colourless ALW (Alloy Linde Werdelin) absorbs and subtly reflects the colours of the Oktopus MoonLite – White’s surroundings, creating an iridescent camouflage, a property it shares with its namesake, the octopus.

ALW is originally an aerospace material, designed for the high performance requirements and low failure tolerances of that industry, but has been repurposed by Linde Werdelin for use in its timepieces. Linde Werdelin uses colourless ALW which has been subjected to a 25 micrometre treatment (standard treatments are usually only 5 micrometres in depth), creating a protective layer and making it twice the strength of steel while remaining half the weight of titanium. The treatment can go so deep because of the porous structure of ALW; it essentially absorbs the treatment like your hand would absorb skin cream, which results in a protective layer that is highly resistant to dents and scratches.

The Oktopus MoonLite – White features a white ceramic bezel with circular satin finishing that both contrasts with, and complements, the ALW case, while bridging the gap between white rubber strap and the satin-finished silver-white dial to enhance the holistic three-dimensional design experience. Within the dial sits a moonphase complication with photorealistic moon phases hand-drawn by Morten Linde, creative mind of Linde Werdelin.
