The Danes are famous for design, often (and stereotypically), the sort of clean and minimalist design beloved of Monocle readers the world over. The Danish designed, Swiss made replica watches of Linde Werdelin mens replica are certainly exquisitely made, but they’re a far cry from the sleek Scandi aesthetic that’s been en vogue for the last few years. And their latest replica watch is no different.
Linde Werdelin make sports replica watches. Big, bold and unashamedly modern sports replica watches with a clear sense of purpose and some truly impressive case construction. Their replica watches are a lesser known alternative to replica watches from Hublot, as well as some of the sportier replica watches from the likes of Audemars Piguet and IWC.
The Linde Werdelin Oktopus Carbon Moon Replica is the sixth release in the Oktopus Moon series, and (unsurprisingly) features a moonphase complication, with a very modern photorealistic moon, on the openworked dial (which while stunning to look at, must be tricky to read at times).
But the real hero of the replica watch is the case. Specifically the carbon case material. While forged carbon is all the rage in replica watch land these days, Linde Werdelin decided to go another route. Sure, the journey might have taken 2 years of R&D, but if the press photos are anything to go by it was certainly time well spent.
This carbon case is made using 3-dimensional thin ply technology, where thin sheets of carbon are laminated together to create the case shape, and then sculpted and finished to create the final case. We think the result is a cleaner look than you usually find on a carbon replica watch, one almost reminiscent of damascened steel. Plus it looks bad ass on the chocolate rubber strap.
