According to Linde Werdelin replica watches, more than two years of research and development has gone in to perfect the challenging technique of compressing carbon fibres into shape for the Oktopus Moon Carbon. It then takes another lengthy handcrafting process to arrive at a sculpted replica watchcase that is accentuated by its finely striped facets with a delicate sheen.
3DTP? – or 3-Dimensional Thin Ply – has been conceived from the heart of the Swiss Jura over a number of years. It is in a uniquely enviable position of merging material design with the art of replica watches making.
Although the use of carbon isn’t exactly new to the replica watches industry, Linde Werdelin notes that their Oktopus Moon Carbon uses a breakthrough material, developed with 3DTP? technology, for its outercase to produce the desired case finishing.
The Linde Werdelin Oktopus Moon Carbon replica watches and Oktopus BluMoon replica watches are similar in dimensions, movement, functionality and so on. The biggest differences lies in the use of the material. Where the BluMoon uses Grade 5 titanium with both polished and brushed facets, the Oktopus Moon Carbon uses, well, carbon.
Unlike conventional carbon materials developed for industrial purposes (such as those for nautical, automotive, and aerospace manufacturing,) the stringent tolerance in high craftsmanship of replica watches making demands absolute precision in the surface finishing.
