The stripped-back dial has Super LumiNova on the hands, numerals and indices to aid in deep diving. The upper dial uses a laser-cut technique in the form of octopus arms, the Lower dial circular Côtes de Genève creates depth to the dial.

Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a full set and therefore comes with its original Linde Werdelin box and Linde Werdelin papers, the guarantee was signed in April 2019 and therefore is well within its manufacturer's warranty. The watch is in great condition and has been barely worn, the watch is also limited to 88 pieces and this is a very early number 2!
Whilst definitely not my typical style and certainly not my preference for case size, I have found myself wearing this watch and seriously enjoying it! The case size might be large but the design of the case allows it to hug your wrist comfortably, the overall design is awesome too! I love this and now a Linde Werdelin is definitely on my personal must own list!
