Linde Werdelin has released a very unique series of the SpidoLite family available exclusively in Linde Werdelin’s North America authorized retailers. SpidoLite II Titanium Gold is a limited edition of 15 pieces available exclusively in North America territory. While the skeletonised case is entirely crafted in titanium it features a rose gold crown and rose gold detailing on the dial.
Like the original SpidoLite family, the case and dial construction of SpidoLite II Titanium Gold are inspired by racing cars' weight reduction technology, making this piece the ultimate tool for high altitude sports experience. The entire case bears hand satin finished facets and details in microbillé. The crown is crafted in 18 karat rose gold with microbillé followed by a hand satin finishing. The dial consists of two skeletonized layers. The 'Côtes de Genève' lower dial carries the Linde Werdelin logo. The upper dial is in a rose gold colour with luminant indexes as well as the three hands. The numerals of the skeletonised black calendar wheel have been amplified, enhancing date readability.
The LW 04, caliber 2251, powers the SpidoLite II Gold, custom-made by Concepto; 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. The front and back of the movement are finished with a circular perlage and engraved with the Spido icon. The black rotor bears a rose gold Linde Werdelin logo type. 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 Titanium Gold is available in a limited series of 15 pieces, with a Sticker Price $ 12,900 USD from July 2013 exclusively from Linde Werdelin’s North America authorized retailers.
