At Baselworld 2009 Linde Werdelin reveiled 4 new models. All models have the same case that is waterproof up to 300 meters, so the sports intruments can be attached. You can ckeck out the new and old collection at Linde Werdelin’s website.

The  new models are available in steel, DLC, steel/gold, full gold and even gold with a DLC bezel. Although i’m not keen on watches, larger than 44mm I need to say that Linde Werdelin, measuring 46mm, does not feel oversized at all. If I had to compare it’s size I would say it looks and feels like a 44mm Panerai.

Inside ticks a trustworthy ETA movement, except in the new SpidoLite SA. This is also the only model with a see through caseback, so you can see the vintage A Schild caliber 1876. Sven Anderson, one of the founders of the AHCI, did the finishing on these vintage movements.

The SpidoLite titanium case is is already lighter and because the case is skelletonized, it is 60% lighter than a Linde Werdelin in steel. Now one more photo of my personal favorite of Linde Werdelin, that I took at Baselworld.
