Linde Werdelin SpidoLite All Black
All the SpidoLites have a skeletonized case, as well as a skeleton dial that partially shows the modified Andersen Genève movement - an automatic movement from the 1970's. Not necessarily a better choice, but surely a more interesting one than for instance the ETA based workhorses that you can find in many other watches - high end ones included. All three versions of the watch have a crystal case back so that you can see the engraved rotor in action.
The case has of course that very distinct Linde Werdelin shape with its angles and openings that allow you to attach the unique LW instruments. For instance the sea/dive instrument "The Reef" and the land/ski instrument "The Rock".

The All Black (DLC-ed) version has blue hour, minute and seconds hands that give the watch an even more unique look. I had the watch for a couple of days so that I could shoot the photos that you can see in this post. I have uploaded 24 pictures in total of this watch to the paneristipix.com photo database.
Each Linde Werdelin watch is linked to special art work, a sort of action figure. The SpidoLites are linked to a "cat woman" like figure as shown in the below photo. The way LW are marketing their products is as refreshing as the design of their watches.
The Rose Gold and All Black come as a special edition of 88 units. The SA version is a special edition watch of only 44 units. The watches come with a tapering Spido crocodile strap.
