Linde Werdelin Spidolite II Tech Green Luxury Watch Review This Linde Werdelin Spidolite II Tech Green is Danish, British, and Swiss. A product of an increasingly global luxury watch culture, this is a sports watch for cosmopolitan sensibilities and fans of high technology. The Spidolite II Tech Green combines forged carbon fiber, exotic Alloy Linde Werdelin (ALW), titanium bolts, and ceramic components to prove that more is less: more tech, less mass. And with only 82 grams of mass, the Spidolite II Tech Green is true to its name. Linde Werdelin builds sports watches - period. The company's 44mm forged carbon fiber case allows chief designer Morton Linde to explore modern machine themes and leverage extensive skeletonization to "turn the machine inside out." Every element of the Spidolite II emphasizes the essence of a modern luxury watch: the mechanical movement inside. And inside the skeletonized carbon fiber exoskeleton and inner ALW case is a LW04 automatic movement built expressly for the Swiss-Danish firm by Chaux-de-Fonds movement specialist Concepto. Valerian Jaquet designed this movement to be a set-it-and-forget-it timekeeper with Rolex levels of durability. True to their progressive image, Linde Werdelin designed the Spidolite II Tech Green to dock with the company’s modular Rock and Reef ski and dive computers, respectively. Each boasts capabilities including computerized data logging, multiple timers, depth and barometer gauges, avalanche warnings, compasses, and alarms. With these add-on components, available directly from Linde Werdelin, the 100-meter water resistant Spidolite becomes a 21st century sports watch with no rivals from traditional Swiss watchmakers. Linde Werdelin distinguishes the face of the Spidolite II Tech Green with a skeleton dial that reveals the AL04 movement within. With an intricate dial pattern evocative of jet turbines and a case reminiscent of an H.R. Giger bio-mechanoid, the Spidolite II presents a fearsome face to arch rivals Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore and Hublot Big Bang. But the Linde Werdelin Spidolite II Tech Green has both of these brand names beat when exclusivity enters the equation. As one of only 75 units built, this Linde Werdelin Spidolite II likely will be the only one its owner ever encounters. Meanwhile, certain offices across America are beginning to look like Hublot warehouses. Up the ante: Linde Werdelin's website offers a huge range of optional accessory straps in many different colors, materials, and buckle designs.
