From Linde Werdelin LINDE WERDELIN, the leading sports watches and attachable instruments brand is launching two new models to complement and complete the successful SpidoLite SA model launched earlier this year. The new versions come in either all black titanium DLC coating or rose gold with black DLC details.

Like the titanium version, the two new additions feature a 1970’s automatic movement modified in the Andersen Geneva Atelier

by respected Danish-born watchmaker and founding member of the AHCI, Svend Andersen.

Pushing the boundaries of Horological design even more, Linde Werdelin's creative team had to further perfect the technique of drilling the case, to allow the use of rose gold as a metal. This unique to Linde Werdelin technique ensures a robust drilled out watch frame allowing both the Rock and the Reef instruments to be attached on top of the case.

While encompassing all the signature details of the Linde Werdelin watches, the SpidoLite SA family features hollowed angular polygonal facets throughout its distinctive case while parts of the dial have also been removed to reveal the Svend Andersen movement. The sapphire crystal case-back beautifully displays the retouched movement with the blue gold rotor plate bearing the LW and AG logos.


The inspiration of creating a lighter watch came from a professional mountaineer’s request to Morten Linde before his expedition to Mount Everest. “We wanted to make an even more functional watch for the sports enthusiasts and professionals without however compromising on design", says Morten Linde co-founder and Creative Director of the brand.

He continues saying, "It took us a couple of years to perfect this technique which is based on the simple idea of removing all parts that are not needed on a watch case. The result is a much lighter and aesthetically pleasing case”.
