Take A Look At The Linde Werdelin Spidospeed Steel Mens Replica
Linde Werdelin Spidospeed Steel: You are probably wondering, what’s up with that title? Stay with me, as I’ll get to that bit. First, let’s touch on a brief bit of background of Linde Werdelin Mens Replica, but if you know your stuff about LW then I’d suggest you skip the next couple of paragraphs.
The brand, Linde Werdelin, was created in 2002 by long-time Danish friends, Morten Linde and Jorn Werdelin. Both are keen skiers and they decided to develop a line of modern sport replica watches that would server as a platform for high-tech navigation and diving instruments. Named “The Rock” and “The Reef”, respectively. Werdelin’s family owned a jewellery shop, where he learnt to appreciate timepieces from a very early age. However, a significant life-changing experience occurred while skiing off-piste in bad weather. Werdelin got lost, skied off a cliff and broke his back. It was this incident that would plant a seed in the mind of Werdelin in how useful – and even possibly life saving – a rugged, easy-to-wear navigation instrument might be.
Morten Linde worked as a product designer for Bang & Olufsen before founding his own design studio, where he designed everything from sound systems to telephones and replica watches. In 2002 Linde started talking to Werdelin about how skiing instruments might be improved and the two friends decided to make their own, which would attach to high quality replica watches. Linde Werdelin was born.
The Linde Werdelin collection currently consists of two families: Spido featuring light but strong skeletonised titanium cases for the mountains and the Oktopus – big date dive replica watch for the reefs. The timepieces are developed in Denmark and made in Geneva.
After picking up this timepiece from the guys over at the Linde Werdelin Pembridge Villas and making my way home on the overcrowded sweaty London Underground during the heat wave – it wasn’t until I got home and Little Bex looked at it and said ‘Transformers’, that it dawned on me what it was exactly that he saw? Which got me thinking, this Spidospeed is precisely what a replica watch that transformed would look like (Michael Bay, you heard it here first).
The facts: this Linde Werdelin Spidospeed Steel is interestingly a lot smaller than I expected, the case is 44mm x 46mm x 15mm (water-resistant to 100m) – okay, so maybe its not that small but the cleverly engineered skeletonised case masks these dimensions. You could imagine that this is the kind of weight-saving exercise F1 teams perform but then cover up. Linde Werdelin have left it bare for all to see, and it does make for a good bit of eye-candy but I must say it can feel a bit sharp at times.
