New Releases - Linde Werdelin SpidoLiteGadget and horological aficionados trying to balance durability with weight have a stylish new option. The SpidoLite, from Danish watchmaker Linde Werdelin, employs a titanium casing that drastically reduces the overall weight. Reportedly made at the request of mountaineer Morten Linde before he climbed Mount Everest, the casing is drilled into an "exoskeleton" form that further lightens the load while giving it a striking, incomplete appearance.

Particularly exciting for vintage watch fans, the SpidoLite uses a 1970s automatic movement that was personally modified by founding member of the ACHI, Svend Anderson.

The SpidoLite is produced in a single batch of only 44 and will officially hit the market at BaselWorld 2009. It's expected to retail for €9,000 and will be available in April.

Steve Fossett's Breitling Emergency Not Activated

Steve Fossett's Breitling Emergency Not Activated
As of today, adventurer Steve Fossett is still missing after his plane disappeared last week. One of the more troubling details is that his Breitling Emergency wristwatch has yet to be turned on.

A downed pilot can activate a micro-transmitter in the watch by unscrewing the cap, pulling out the antenna, and waiting for rescue. (A Breitling Emergency success story from 2003-->Link)
