Inspired by the toughest terrain and crafted with the strongest material, this limited edition series of 8 is the most dramatic collaboration between LW and master engraver and artist Johnny Dowell yet.

The Oktopus Volcano is a watch transformed into a fiery piece of active lava and ash.

Born from a collaboration with Johnny Dowell, an artist and master engraver, each of the 8 timepieces has very slight variations in design due to the hand engraving technique and therefore each piece is unique from each other and from others in the watch making industry.

The outer case, comprised of titanium and 24kt gold inlay, is covered in an intricate lava and ash engraving representing an active volcano. Taking a year in design and production, each timepiece in this series has undergone its own unique engraving and blackening process over several weeks. The tiny variations in the engraving of each piece means that all 8 are truly one of a kind wearable works of art.

From volcanic heights to deepest seas, this high spec watch is beautiful but built for adventure and offers water-resistance to a depth of 300 metres.

The intricate engraving process for each piece takes many weeks, from planning the layout of the watch to engraving and inlaying the 24kt gold and finally creating the blackened effect. The details are created with a very fine cut done under a microscope or magnifying loop requiring extreme focus and patience.

It is the most dramatic collaboration with Dowell yet, and forms a trio with the previous two limited editions Oktopus Reef and Oktopus Crazy Universe, representing the deep sea, outer space, and volcanic rock respectively.

Limited to 8 exclusive pieces worldwide. Made to order and on your wrist within 8 weeks.
