Is the new Linde Werdelin Oktopus II Double Date Titanium Red a luxury sports watch or a professional digital instrument for scuba-diving? As with all Linde Werdelin's watches, it depends on how you wear it.

The Oktopus II Double Date Titanium Red is the latest incarnation of the Oktopus II Double Date, which launched last year. A numbered series of 88 pieces, the latest model features a Dubois Depreaz 14580 movement with 44 hour power reserve, laser-cut double date wheels at 12 o'clock and Linde Werdelin's trademark five-part case construction, just like the original. Unlike the 2012 models in blue, yellow and titanium and rose gold, which have black dials, Linde Werdelin's latest timepiece has a natural titanium dial with red accents and an interchangeable red rubber strap.

The young watch brand has a novel approach to timekeeping. Founders Morten Linde and Jorn Werdelin have created a niche for themselves with their highly crafted sports watches that, when required, can be combined with a professional digital instrument to turn them into dive and ski computers.

"Analogue is the best way to read time," says Linde, "and digital is how you assimilate technical details." When you're an off-piste skiier and are taken by surprise by bad weather, causing you to ski off a cliff, as Werdelin did in 1996, this kind of distinction is crucial. Which is how the idea for a watch that can be transformed into a digital instrument came about.

Linde Werdelin's new Oktopus II Double Date Titanium Red is fully compatible with The Reef - designed in-house and one of the most sophisticated dive computers in the world - which is now available in red. Simply attach the Reef to your timepiece and you can track all critical information when you're below water via sensors, a sophisticated low-power multi MPU platform, an advanced 3-axis compass and alarm systems.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
