After a week of fun in the snow (wearing my Linde Werdelin 3-Timer), it is time to get back to work and back to blogging about watches. During my vacation, the invitations for BaselWorld and press releases are flooding my mailbox. So beware of some frequent updates here at Fratellowatches. Furthermore, an Orient review is coming up. Although I never took a serious look at Orient watches before, it seems to be a lot of bang for the buck. More this week!

As you can see above, I shot some pictures of my Linde Werdelin timepiece during the holiday. Although I am not particularly careful with this watch, it seems to be hard to get any scratches on this baby. Just recently, a reader of my blog asked me about the Linde Werdelin and if it was a scratch magnet…?Ǭ? Well, it is not. After owning it for several months now, the scratches on my Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and IWC Ingenieur are far more present (and visible). I don’t think there is even one scratch on the LW. Nice eh?

Back to answering a lot of unread e-mail on my Mac.

  • Welcome home robert-jan, looking forward to our get-together soon.

  • I’ll mail you in a second Ernie! πŸ™‚


  • EE

    Tell us what size your wrist is for context. I’m very interested in owning one of these but am sooooo hesitant due to my small 6.5 inch wrist. Maybe you could find a friend with a 6.5 inch wrist, throw your watch on them and give use some photographs. Would make for an interesting article on watch-to-wrist size with the same watch on different wrist sizes!!!

  • Hi EE,

    You are not the first one to ask in one week πŸ™‚ My wrist size is 7.5 inch. Note that I have seen this Linde Werdelin watch often on smaller wrists and even female’s wrist, looks good. However, I suggest you try one before you buy one. Linde Werdelin has this test period for 5 days, no strings attached.


  • I absolutely love what Linde Werdelin calls the Sun Ray Texture on the dial of the 3 Timer. I also like that the date window is on the smaller side and blends nicely into the background, giving a nice open dial appearance. That is a serious chuck of steel, glad to hear it wears well. I have not had an opportunity to try one on yet, looking forward to it in the near future.
