Linde Werdelin is one of our favorite watch manufacturers. We've talked about them many times, and even interviewed founders Morten and Jorn. The combination of progressive design and in-house technology (for their digital instruments) really speaks to us as watch lovers, gadget lovers, and product design lovers.
Recently, we had the chance to borrow Linde Werdelin's 3-Timer watch along with their Rock digital instrument, designed for skiers and hikers. We figured what better way to test out this luxurious sport watch and ski instrument then to take it on the slopes, so that's exactly what we did. We brought along the perfect compliment to a luxurious and sporty watch, a luxurious and sporty SUV, the Infiniti FX50S. Did we have fun? Take a look for yourselves.
The 3-Timer is the most versatile model in the LW lineup. While the Spidolite attracts the most attention (as it should), the Oktopus is a hard-core diving watch, and the One is a simple classic, the 3-Timer does everything the other models do while retaining a sophisticated overtone. The textured dial, the smaller indexes placed closer to the edge of the face, and the polished facets make this watch less on the sporty side and more on the luxury side of the equation, especially when compared to its Linde Werdelin brethren. However, by nature of simply being a Linde Werdelin, the 3-Timer is athletic.
As we mention in our video above, we consider these watches a reasonable alternative to the likes of such heavyweights as the AP Royal Oak and the Patek Philippe Nautilus, despite the lack of an in-house movement. This watch isn't about the movement (which happens to be a great ETA 2893), it's about the overall package, a package that puts the 3-Timer at the top of our wish list.
