TBlack, a British business that specialises in customising one-off watches from luxury brands, has forged an official partnership with Linde Werdelin to produce a limited edition collection.
TBlack is used to being treated as an outsider by the Swiss watch industry, which detests having its watches tampered with.
But Linde Werdelin is embracing the maverick designer in the creation of a new SpidoLite x TBlack, which will be produced in a limited run of 10 pieces, and will sit within the brand’s Monochrome design family.
Spidolite is a favourite of mountaineers, thanks to its durable, lightweight design.
Linde Werdelin says the limited edition is more of a refinement than revolution, although TBlack is putting 125 hours of work between disassembly and reassembly.
