Linde Werdelin SpidoLite Tech Gold Watch Hands-On

Linde Werdelin’s signature case structure also features a display case back that allows for full view of the beautifully finished custom-made automatic movement that is also revealed through the skeletonized dial. The movement is visible through the dial where the upper part bears a black treatment on a perlage surface with blue screws. The engraved Spido icon and the black satin hand finished rotor bearing a gold Linde Werdelin marque are also visible through the sapphire crystal case back.

More details about the movement:

ValÈrien Jaquet of Concepto has devised a highly accomplished mechanical movement to power the SpidoLite Tech Gold. The Caliber LW 04 based on Valjoux 7750, but without the chrono feature was custom-made entirely to Linde Werdelin’s specifications oscillating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4Hz). On the function front, the watch features hours, minutes, seconds, date and a 42-hour power reserve. The timepiece is also water-resistant to a depth of 100m.

Finally, The SpidoLite Tech Gold is equipped with a really cool black textured calfskin strap with red stitching and ardillon buckle. The attachment of the strap to the case doesn’t allow me move enough though. So if you have a small wrist like mine, you have to adjust the size otherwise the watch will overflow in your wrist, which is not nice at all.

Well, this watch amazed me because it’s really light even if the case is robust and despite its impressive size the watch is very comfortable. Finally, you can see so many beautiful details on it that you can’t stop looking at it and I love the complexity of the case and the style of the assembly.

What about the accessories? As I’ve said, I tried the watch with a black textured calfskin strap with red stitching and ardillon buckle.

But LW has a range of straps designed to fit all their watches, so you can change the looks with different straps to suit different occasions as you please. The streamlined interlinking of the strap fits perfectly into the watch case and is finished with unique hexagonal decorative screws.
