We all know the OS ti/SS, and Alex' picture speaks a 1,000 words. However, all of you might not be familiar with the Linde Werdelin Spidolite, and so please find below some further info on it, so that you can make an informed decision...
The LW Spidolite has a skeletonised case in titanium as well as a 1970's automatic movement, modified in the Andersen Geneva Atelier by respected Danish-born watchmaker and founding member of the ACHI, Svend Andersen (I personally had never heard of him before reading the press release, but I am not a “Knowlegeable WIS”....)
The titanium case has been drilled leaving just the frame and ensuring at all times maximum durability of the watch.
The movement is a NOS A. Schild ref. 1876 movement (A. Schild was one of the major movement manufacturers in Switzerland in up until the 1978, when ETA and A. Schild merged into what is today know as ETA). This movement is then re-polished with Cotes de Geneve pattern, calibrated and regulated to modern standards. Additionally, a 0,2mm blue gold rotor plate is added to the rotor.
The case size is misleading: the bezel is closer to 38mm, and I would say that the watch sits quite well on the wrist (it feels a lot smaller than my Hublot Big Bang; I would say that it feels more like 42mm x 44mm…)
