Linde Werdelin: new "Hard Black DLC II"
Black with a hint of yellow
LINDE WERDELIN’s new Hard Black DLC II
Linde Werdelin, leading sports and attachable instrument watch brand, launches the second limited series of the Hard Black DLC to add to its niche array of elegant sports watches. Following the success of the first series, the Hard Black DLC II is based on the new model The One with new hand and bezel details, which add to the unique allure of Linde Werdelin watches.
The new Hard Black series features a colour contrast of bright yellow luminous hour markers, strap stitching and the all black of the case while it shares the same case dimensions with the rest of the LW watches to ensure the safe attachment of both the Rock and the Reef.
The steel case initially goes through a hardening process and for this series, the Hard Black II is
microbille finished before the DLC coating is applied. This new procedure, ensures an even tougher case coating. The case then is blasted with around one thousandth of a millimetre of carbon to create a surface up to three times harder than steel and second only to diamond in hardness. This hydrogen free diamond structure crafts the watch in such a way that it guarantees extreme durability and virtual scratch and corrosion resistance, perfect for any sporting environment.
“All Linde Werdelin watches are often rigorously put through their pace in extreme sporting
environments, the DLC coating compliments and reflects the rugged yet architectural nature of the watches. As the most sophisticated natural materials have all been discovered, as designers, we must push technology to develop new improved materials and new ways to strengthen the existing materials available” comments the Creative Director and co-founder of the brand Morten Linde.
Linde Werdelin’s Hard Black has already endured the harsh conditions on Leo Houlding’s series of
latest expeditions in Europe and the US. The British rock climbing and Base Jumping prodigy has
been wearing the Hard Black Elemental when simul climbing the remote mount Riglos in Spain and Yosemite in the US.
The Hard Black II series is limited to 88 pieces and is currently available to pre-order on
Lindewerdelin.com or from any LW authorised retailer.

The One is the standpoint for me of LW's current line. This is a tough-guy, brutally handsome watch. I like it! Cheers, Daos
Thanks Marcus !
I have pics of several LW watches, I have to prepare the post. Fr.Xavier
... the PuristS certainly have tradition and heart for small, niche brands, and we already had (and have) fora for brands with a very small production and market share. Anyway, with an own forum or without, I am quite sure we will hear more about that bra...
...if any amongst us has bought an LW, and better yet, used it with one of the attachments (The Rock or Reef) for climbing, diving, etc. Inquiring minds want to know... Daos
If I am mistaken. It is my understanding that none of the LW watches have been delivered.
I'm not sure...
...but looks like we'll be seeing one on a fellow Purist's wrist soon, judging from Park's recent post below! Cheers, Daos
I'd like to see some LWs in the metal. Particularly, The One. Cheers, Daos
At least one
Daos, If by "bought" you mean selected and paid, at least one of us has. I've been watching for delivery of an Andersen Spido since June. I'll share photos when it gets here. Park
Can't wait to see your new LW, Park! *waiting expectantly* Daos
