There is another trendy area that Linde Werdelin is nodding at with the SpidoLite - gray watches. The SpidoLite is a decidedly gray watch as you can see in the dial and the case. The dial is interesting. You have the skeletonized hands (that still have SuperLumiNova on them), and the various pieces of the dial. Still, part of the dial design gives you markers for the hours and minutes, so you can still read the time. The SpidoLite isn't quite as legible as other Linde Werdelin pieces, but you'll spend more time admiring the watch itself than relying on it for the time. The case and watch are not flashy, so don't expect that. Rather, they are visually interesting and unlike anything you have seen before, I promise. As is the case with all Linde Werdelin watches, the BiFormeter case and strap style make for a very comfortable wearing experience. I really can't stress that enough. On the SpidoLite, Linde Werdelin places a fabric style strap with a titanium push-button operated folding deployment. To match the skeletonziation of the case, the strap has three rectangular pieces cut out on each side. I've handled a few Linde Werdelin watches, each with a different strap material, and they feel comfortable each time. What I like is that you can wear them tight or a bit loose, and they are still highly compatible with comfort. Despite the avant garde nature of the design, the SpidoLite is still a hard watch with double sapphire crystals and 300 meters of water resistance. I don't think that Linde Werdelin would ever release a watch no matter how interesting it might look, that didn't satisfy the basic "adventure watch" requirements.
A great way to get a good deal on a nice watch is to check out a "watch deal of the day" site. These sites have special prices on watches that last for 24 hours. Each day there is a new deal. If you are an avid follower of these sales, it can be a problem as there are so many to look at. Plus, there are some you don't even know about. I recently learned about WatchDODdy.com. It aggregates many (maybe all) of the watch deal of the deal sites together in one easy place. I think it is a great idea. Frankly, I appreciate it, but don't know what WatchDODdy.com gets out of it. They must have some super special plan. Or alternatively, they are watch lovers themselves who wanted to share their little creation.
