Unlocking the Mystery of the R

Posted on May 13, 2014 by Morten Linde


R – one little letter with one big meaning.

Not only does it bring to mind our skiing and diving instruments, the Rock and the Reef, it also stands for ‘Recharge’, the 4 hours required to fully power up the instruments.


The R-charge indicator was our way of cleverly referring to that detail in the 6 o’clock subdial on all SpidoSpeeds, our signature chronograph.


Here’s how it works: the next time you return from a day at sea or on the slopes, connect the instrument to its charger and start your chronograph. Sit back, relax, and four hours later, when the R-charge indicator is hit, you are all set to pick up where you left off.

No guesswork. Just fun.
