The Lab

Handcrafting...Individually

Posted on November 29, 2012 by Linde Werdelin

There is no need to romanticise the way we create the Spido watch cases – it is a craft, highly technical and complicated.  We take you behind the scenes, so you can see a few of the treatments among a long list of them each case undergoes to be produced one by one, with undivided attention by a craftsman.

Different sizes of drills required for working on various case shapes, angles, and finishing…for just one Spido case.

Hand finish and perfect each part where no machine can ever reach.

Each watchmaker’s table is equipped exclusively for crafting the Spido cases.

Hand assembling the cases in a highly controlled environment.  The amount of manual efforts and care poured into each case is at the top of the scale.  You may see the Spido in a different light next time you have the pleasure of viewing it.
