Linde Werdelin mens replica 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.
