Bold SpidoLite Watch Created by Linde Werdelin and Svend Andersen

May 27, 2010
Last year, Linde Werdelin proudly unveiled its new watch collection dubbed The SpidoLite. The collection brought out an innovative skeletonized case sculptured in titanium.

The watches accommodated a 1970s automatic movement modified by Svend Andersen, a famous Danish-born watchmaker and founding member of the AHCI, in his Geneva Atelier.

The SpidoLite is highly functional watch aimed at sports enthusiasts and professionals.

Linde Werdelin's creative team came up with a unique skeletonized case that was drilled, with just the frame left. The case construction was provided not only with maximum durability, but also extremely light weight.

It is interesting to mention that the idea of creating a lighter timepiece belonged to Leo Houlding, a professional mountaineer who conquered Everest. It took the brand a few years to successfully develop the idea of removing all parts that are not necessary on a watch case. They came up with a a much lighter case with a powerful aesthetic appeal.

The new timepieces have maintained all the signature features of Linde Werdelin watches. They were equipped with a redesigned movement, with the titanium rotor plate decorated with the LW and AG logos.

The Linde Werdelin Spidolite watch collection comprises three variations completely in titanium, titanium provided with black DLC coating and unusual yellow-coated sapphire crystal, as well as titanium with a skeleton dial. The watches are limited to 222, 44 and 44 pieces respectively. The timepieces go on high-grade rubber straps.
