Zenith has expanded their Pilot Montre d’Aéronef (Which is French for “onboard watch”) line at Baselworld 2013 this year with five new models. Very cool pieces from Zenith that give Pilot watch fans another choice for a top tier Pilot Chronograph outside of the IWC and Glashutte Original Pilot watches. I particularly like how Zenith has done the lugs on these watches… I really want to pick up one of these as they are my favourite Pilot Watches out right now.

I particularly like the 48mm GMT model. My kind of watch.

To be introduced at Baselworld 2013, the new Linde Werdelin SpidoLite II Tech is sure to turn some heads. With their innovative styling and unique materials, these are going to be favourites for the gadget crowd that Linde tends to draw. Produced in extremely limited editions of 75 pieces each, MSRP is $14,800 for Tech Green and $19,300 for Tech Gold.

I personally dig the Tech Green.


These two series come in a new case, Alloy Linde Werdelin (ALW) which is comprised of carbon, ceramic, gold and a ceramic coating for titanium. ALW is an alloy of metals which is 50% lighter than titanium. The inner case, which originally retains the same strength as steel, receives 25 microns treatment to harden its surface, while achieving a radiant red or green color visible through the angular hollows of the skeletonised outer case sides. 2/3 of the treatment goes into the ALW, while 1/3 is applied onto the surface, resulting in a composite stronger than steel.


During the last two years Linde Werdelin (LW) has tested and developed new materials and composites that best suit the purpose of each timepiece. The new SpidoLite II Tech is a result of this experimental approach.


For weight reduction the new ALW, a strong composite of metals, has been conceived for the inner case, while the outer case is crafted in forged carbon. The inner and outer case and the bezel have undergone numerous tolerance tests to find the optimal relation between the three materials. A further challenge has been to establish the correct balance between the strength and lightness of the skeletonised carbon case.

Movement is the Swiss automatic Linde Werdelin caliber LW04 with a power reserve of 42 hours, which is custom made by Valérien Jaquet of Concepto.

The dial consists of two skeletonized layers. The Côtes de Genève decorated lower dial carries the LW logo and is laser-cut, revealing angular hollows conveying depth to the dial. The upper dial bears the Luminova indeces. The red or green date wheel, with opening at 3 o’clock matches the second’s sub-dial numerals at 9 o’clock.


Ultra-light, ultra-sporty

Beneath its all-black exterior, the highly original Bentley Light Body Midnight Carbon issued in a 1,000-piece worldwide limited edition conceals a light and sturdy titanium chassis featuring a highly resistant carbon-based coating.


The dashboard-style dial displays two exclusive Breitling technical features highlighted by red-rimmed indications. The ingenious “30-second chronograph” system, heir to a 1926 Breitling patent, with its central hand sweeping around the dial in half a minute instead of the customary 60 seconds, provides highly accurate 1/8th of a second readings. Contrary to conventional tachometers, designed to handle observations based only on times of less than 60 seconds, the “variable tachometer” activated via the rotating pinion bezel serves to measure average speeds whatever the time elapsed, the distance covered or the speed reached. The originality and strength of the all-black design are accentuated by the hands and hour-markers also clad in matt black – enhanced by a luminescent coating ensuring optimal readability in the dark. The midnight black rubber strap is distinguished by its central raised motif echoing that of the knurled bezel – a refined nod to the famous radiator grilles gracing the prow of Bentley cars. The performances of this elegant and ultra-sporty watch are powered by a selfwinding chronograph movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) – the ultimate reference in terms of reliability and precision and the only one based on an international standard.
