|LINDE WERDELIN, the leading sports watches and attachable instruments brand is launching two new models to
complement and complete the successful SpidoLite SA model (Svend Andersen) launched earlier this year. The
latest 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 1970s automatic movement modified in the Andersen Genève Atelier
(AG) 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 (LW) 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".
The launch of the SpidoLite SA family marks the continuation of Linde Werdelin’s collaboration with independent watchmakers. “We wanted to create a SpidoLite SA for every taste. The collaboration with Svend Andersen has just been the beginning of even greater projects to come in the future” says Jorn Werdelin. The new SpidoLite SA models are limited to 88 pieces each and are both currently available to order on LindeWerdelin.com or from any LW authorized retailer.
