The Linde Werdelin SpidoLite concept is simple: save as much weight as possible without compromising on strength, integrity or performance. We already reviewed the SpidoLite watches here and here.

Now, Linde Werdelin presents two new SpidoLite family members, the SpidoLite Titanium and the SpidoLite Gold. The 4th Gen of Linde Werdelin’s skeleton watches, making the titanium version the lightest-ever Linde Werdelin timepiece.

As of today, these new models will be launched exclusively at prestigious Parisian watch boutique, Chronopassion, and by appointment at BaselWorld 2015, both pieces will be on general release at a number of select retailers as of 26th March 2015. The SpidoLite Titanium and SpidoLite Gold will be available in a limited and numbered series of 75 pieces each worldwide, at CHF 15,000 and CHF 27,000 respectively, excluding VAT.

Linde Werdelin SpidoLite Gold

Under the case and past the clean, minimalist dial, Linde Werdelin’s commitment to weight optimisation is realised through extreme skeletonisation, as the inner workings of the SpidoLite are exposed for all to see. Linde Werdelin partnered with movement maker Chronode SA to create caliber LW07. A new cool feature is the power reserve indicator. Most of the time you’ll see a small hand indicating the remaining hours or a linear slide that indicates the remaining power reserve. Linde Werdelin does things differently. Through the skeletonized dial you will see a small red triangle that points to the spring barrel. Since the barrel cover is open, you can see the spring being fully wound or visibly loose and all steps in between. The tightness of the spring will indicate whether it is fully wound or that it needs some winding for example. A simple solution and the industrial look perfectly blends with all other movement components.
