Linde Werdelin unveils two new titanium SpidoLite models to kick off the new decade in style.
The history of the SpidoLite collection
Linde Werdelin’s SpidoLite collection was originally inspired by a team of explorers who climbed Mount Everest. Since this adventurous ascent, the watch has continued to be tested in the toughest and most grueling conditions.
The explorer Leo Houlding
The testing of the SpidoLite is ongoing with explorer Leo Houlding taking it to the summit of Mount Roraima just last month. He successfully led an expedition to complete a new big-wall free climb in the Amazon rain forest in Guyana. Houlding is a regular watch tester for the brand and took the Biformeter Elemental to Mount Everest in 2007.
The importance of weight
When climbing, one of the most important features in a watch is light weight. It has to be light while keeping all its strength. This new SpidoLite Titanium model has had its weight optimized and features a unique case designed especially for mountaineering and skiing.
A Concepto movement
The SpidoLite Titanium models are powered by a movement developed and modified by Concepto. It has ceramic bearings and features an enhanced balance wheel for increased shock resistance, making it perfect for extreme sports and adventures.
The Arktis green Summit model comes with a black rubber strap and includes the brand’s interchangeable strap system for other strap options too. The piece is limited to 75 pieces.
