SPIDOLITE II TITANIUM BLUE
SpidoLite II is a true testament to supreme craftsmanship and architecture of the most technically-complex watch case design. Featuring Linde Werdelin’s signature fully skeletonised case and dial construction inspired by F1 car’s weight reduction technology, the SpidoLite II is crafted in titanium to further reduce weight yet in a robust structure making it ideal for even the extreme altitude sports experience.
The skeletonised titanium case is a complex and technically challenging construction, requiring the best watchmaker to produce. All the case facets have been blasted with microbillé treatment. The outer case, the bezel and the inner case and certain facets have undergone satin finish.
The dial consists of two skeletonized layers. The Côtes de Genève lower dial carries the LINDE WERDELIN logo. The upper dial bears the orange and luminova indexes, orange numerals of the seconds’ sub-dial at 9 o’clock and the date function. The laser-cut date disk blends with the dial and the titanium and satin finish hands.
The LW 04, caliber 2251, powers the SpidoLite II Titanium DLC Blue, custom-made by Concepto, the independent movement manufacture based in La Chaux de Fonds. The movement is visible through the dial as well as through the sapphire crystal case-back. On the front and back of the movement it’s finished with a circular perlage and engraved with the Spido icon. The black rotor bears a orange LINDE WERDELIN marque.
All the screws in the movement are blued steel and have been implemented because of their high anti-corrosion properties and to enhance the beauty of the movement. The result is achieved with a slow and cautious heating process.
SpidoLite II comes in a family of 5 models: Titanium, Anthracite DLC, Blue, Red, and Black Gold
