It's All About the Size

Posted on September 20, 2010 by Morten Linde

Size does matter as we all know! It is true particularly when it comes to deciding which wristwatch to buy. We have been asked, on several occasions, by various blogs and forums how big the Linde Werdelin watches actually are, which is why I would like to dedicate this week’s post to the LW case size.

When trying on a Linde Werdelin watch, customers are pleasantly surprised that it wears like a 42mm to 44mm, which works on both smaller and bigger wrists. A comprehensive way of measuring the width of the LW case, is to measure it on the bezel as shown in the picture below. In measuring the bezel, the width of the Linde Werdelin case is approximately 40mm. I am sure this raises a few eyebrows of those who haven’t tried on our watches yet!

The confusion over the actual size and the relative wrist-size of our watches occurs because of the angular facets which altogether, and in my humble opinion, make the case design quite unique. The facets however were not just designed to aesthetically please the eye rather, they serve another purpose which is synonymous to Linde Werdelin as an essence: the attachment of The Rock and The Reef.

This is Linde Werdelin’s DNA and something you can expect won’t change in the future.

It is important however to mention at this point that even though the case size is exactly the same, there are visual distinctions between the different models of the SpidoLite, Oktopus, 3-Timer and The One, and with such, you may get the ‘optical illusion’ that some cases are smaller than others.

Take for example the SpidoLite and the Oktopus. At first glance one would think that the case size of the SpidoLite is considerably smaller than the Oktopus one which, as a matter of fact, is not the case.

So if you are wondering whether a LW watch will wear too big on your wrist I would strongly recommend you to Try It on!

I will leave you with a brief video on how we measure the Linde Werdelin case.
