News: Linde Werdelin LW 10-24
Linde Werdelin has an interesting beginning. In 1996, soon-to-be co-founder and keen skier Jorn Werdelin got lost in the Swiss Alps, when he was caught off guard by a sudden change of the weather. He ended up skiing off a cliff in error, and in the resulting accident, broke his back. Thankfully, Werdelin survived, but it planted an idea in his head. As the third generation of a family of jewellers, he wanted to combine this with his love of travel and adventure. Several years later, in 2002, Werdelin partnered up with fellow Dane Morten Linde, an expert in design, and the brand was born. Its timepieces are both examples of high-end watchmaking, as well as utilitarian tools for extreme sports.
