Linde Werdelin announces the launch of its first women’s watch: The White Watch. Based on the popular 3-Timer model, it has been given a softer and more elegant touch while a new strap has been fitted to accommodate smaller feminine wrists.
LW believes the 3-Timer’s design constitutes the perfect model on which to base the brand’s first women’s watch. Starting from the delicate pattern of the dial to the slender, sleek hands and discreet indexes, bearing the minimum luminous material possible and combined with the white color details, The White Watch is designed to complement a lady’s wardrobe. “Women today tend to prefer and wear bigger sized watches and I am very pleased that our designs, although male marketed, are appealing to women as well. Maintaining the brand’s DNA is very important for LW and The White Watch is no exception” says Morten Linde.
While the strap mechanism remains the same, the white calfskin chosen for the new model has a reduced width which allows the watch to sit well on slender wrists. With white as the dominating color the dial and calfskin strap match the details in color on the screws and 24-hour bezel markings.
On the decision to add a women’s watch to the Linde Werdelin collection, Jorn Werdelin commented “It is not our intention to produce a women’s line, but because of the strong market request and Morten thinking that it could be an interesting design exercise, we are launching today The White Watch.”
