Linde Werdelin sent us the as of late presented SpidoLite II watch for audit and we were extremely glad to give it a turn. This light-weight replacement of the SpidoLite, presented in 2009, was abruptly there and dependent on a similar complex case development as the SpidoSpeed chronograph . Sublime designing, incomparable craftsmanship and extraordinary games are a portion of the expressions that utilization for this games watch. Along these lines, what might improve a couple than…
…a Porsche 911 and a Linde Werdelin SpidoLite II? On a stormy Wednesday, we took the vehicle and the watch to Airport Lelystad in The Netherlands and since all flights got dropped because of terrible climate, we asked control tower on the off chance that we could utilize their landing area for a couple of moments 🙂
The SpidoLite II felt truly comfortable in this innovative climate. The modern look of the watch mixed impeccably with the games vehicle and the flying climate. Because of the astute skeletonized case development and the weighty processing of the case parts all remaining parts is a light-weight sports watch. The components of 44 (w) x 46 (l) mm doesn’t relate to the heaviness of the watch (which may feel interesting from the outset), however in the end is fairly comfortable. Particularly when you will utilize this watch for sports purposes.
The instance of the SpidoLite II has this obvious Linde Werdelin DNA, once in a while erroneously being blamed for having an excessive amount of AP Royal Oak and Hublot impacts yet we as a whole know better. This is the state of a cutting edge sports watch with an incorporated tie or arm band. Nonetheless, at this value point Linde Werdelin plays comparable to the previously mentioned watches. We have talked with Jorn two or multiple times ( here and ) and he let us realize that he doesn’t consider these to be and their looks as immediate competitors of LW watches. The SpidoLite II and SpidoSpeed are looks for individuals that presumably have or have had a Royal Oak, Hublot or other notorious watch and are in the requirement for something other than what’s expected, something more elite as far as creation numbers and selective in the manner Linde Werdelin producers their cases.
That’s precisely what we thought when wearing this SpidoLite II. We have constantly had a lot of notorious watches and we feel that this watch doesn’t supplant them however is an extremely cool expansion to them. Wearing it driving the Porsche 911 or wearing it when you are out with companions, going to a presentation or just diner… this watch suits every one of these exercises impeccably. Because of the size, we would be a smidgen more hesitant wearing it when sitting (and scattering) in your work area or doing different sorts of work area work the entire day. The SpidoLite II will hold you up in the long run when composing or writing.
On the other hand, there isn’t anything incorrectly checking the time sitting behind your work area. As you can find in the image over, the 3D impact of the watch is mesmerizing and the skeleton dial makes you need to see and investigate the watch again and again. This is likewise substantial for the rear of the watch, uncovering the Valérien Jaquet Concepto Mechanical Automatic (type 2251) movement.
This Concepto development has been made in close participation with Linde Werdelin, bringing about an extremely decent ‘black gold’ finish on the scaffolds coordinating the swaying weight. This rotor additionally has been skeletonized, much the same as the case and dial of the SpidoLite II. The type 2251 development has a force save of 42 hours and a recurrence of 28800 beats each hour. The case back additionally has a few inscriptions, showing the creation number (restricted to 100 pieces for this situation), name and reference of the watch and the degree of water opposition (100 meters).
Like any remaining Linde Werdelin watches, the SpidoLite II is likewise fit for facilitating a Rock of Reef instrument. In any case, we found no utilization for both of them that day ( we did that before with the Hard Black II ) however we simply need you to realize that you can in the event that you want.
As you have found in the photos over, the watch comes on a cool (and skeletonized) finished calf skin tie that we discovered to be truly comfortable. The SpidoLite II is likewise accessible in a titanium adaptation with a DLC finish, additionally restriced to 100 pieces in particular. The adaptation we looked into records for 9360 Euro and the DLC completed model records for 9930 Euro.
One minor issue we had with this watch (and the SpidoSpeed besides) is screwing down the crown. It appears to be that you’ll need flimsy fingers to have the option to do this without harming them. Truth be told, the three of us (Dennis, Bert and RJ) are not light-loads our selves, however it shouldn’t be that difficult to screw the crown back on with your fingers. Maybe LW can or will deal with this in their next ‘releases’.
The stars of this watch are obvious to us. A lively and select watch for the individuals who need to have something with its own DNA and that will catch everyone’s eye of Rolexes, APs, Panerai, IWC, etc. The complex case plan (19 components for the SpidoLite II case) is troublesome and tedious to fabricate, which is being reflected in its sticker price. A Concepto development isn’t something you will see each day and we additionally don’t have a history of this specific development type in any case. Time will tell.
