A relatively newcomer in the competitive world of today luxury watch-making industry, Linde Werdelin is a promising watch manufacture, which impressed the connoisseurs worldwide with an innovative horological concept – the watch instrument, considered, by its creators, the ultimate sports watch of the third millennium.
The brand was created by two visionary Danes named Morten Linde and Jorn Werdelin, who started from an innovative idea and decided to create a watch-concept, which blended the traditional wristwatch with the functionality of a detachable digital instrument, especially created for a particular type of sport like professional skiing of diving.
Surely, an enthusiast watch connoisseur would like to know that the story of Linde Werdelin started back in 1996, when John Werdelin, suffered a life-threatening accident, during a skiing expedition in the Swiss Alps, when he ventured off-piste and fell off a cliff, breaking his back. That is when he realized that on the contemporary watch market there is room for a revolutionary product capable of providing much more than a traditional timepiece.
Not long ago, the brand brought another impressive addition to its most appreciated watch collection, the Linde Werdelin SpidoLite, which comprises remarkable watches, which feature F1-inspired skeleton cases.
The eye-catching new Linde Werdelin SpidoLite SA All Black Watch, features a powerful masculine grade 5 titanium, case with black DLC-coating, measuring 46 mm x 49 mm, and 12mm in thickness, which incorporates a screw-in crown, a thick glare-proof sapphire crystal of 2.3 mm, and a screw-on sapphire crystal case-back, and provides 300-meters water resistance.
The model demonstrates an interesting skeleton dial, nicely completed with diamond-cut blued steel hour and minutes hands, with central luminescent inserts, and applied luminescent indices, for the 12, 3, 6, respectively 9 o’clock positions.
At the heart of this sophisticated timepiece beats a top quality, self-winding mechanical movement, the AS 1876 caliber, especially modified by the prestigious Andersen Genève Atelier, which includes a blue gold rotor plate engraved with the LW and AG initials.
In addition, we must mention that the model embraces the wrist with a stylish black leather strap, and belongs to a limited edition of only 88 pieces worldwide, which come combined with the brand’s signature ski instrument; as far as the price tag is concerned, we expect it to be somewhere around $10,000.00, plus an additional $2,000.00 for the instrument.
