The Finishing Touch

Posted on March 23, 2011 by Linde Werdelin

The moment has come. The SpidoSpeed is making its debut at BaselWorld starting today.

I have been in Switzerland for the final checks on the new models to ensure all is in order for the launch.

Our watchmakers have been hard at work. They meticulously put the minuscule components, all 237 of them plus 27 jewels, together to make each SpidoSpeed by hand.

The super fine skills and attention to detail over many man-hours required to hand finish a highly crafted timepiece are why watchmakers have to be trained for a number of years before they are qualified to perform this delicate procedure.

We took the opportunity this week to capture some images of the finishing part, from which you can get an idea of how the various components are being transformed into a SpidoSpeed with skilled craftsmanship.

The final result is now being showcased at our stand at BaselWorld. When you get a chance to see or experience a SpidoSpeed, we hope you will enjoy and appreciate it on levels beyond the design and performance.
