The ladies’ version of LOCMAN Italy’s iconic Montecristo is now available with a self-winding movement. For this new model, the Elba watchmaking company decided to satisfy modern women’s ever-growing demand for elegance and femininity by offering a model that delivers enhanced performance while sacrificing none of its inherent refinement.
The inspiration behind this model stems from the scenario of Elba, LOCMAN Italy’s glorious island home, who se beauty is expressed through the subtle colours of the sea and un- spoilt nature.
LOCMAN CELEBRATES THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF ITS FOUNDING AND LAUNCHES THE MONTECRISTO ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION
LOCMAN was founded on the Island of Elba in 1986. Thirty years have passed and a glance at these three decades reveals a wealth of excellent achievements
LOCMAN achieved a world first in 2003 by launching the world’s first watch with a carbon fibre case, accomplishing an authentic revolution: high-tech mate- rials made their grand entrance into the watchmaking world, radically changing its technical and aesthetic characteristics as well as its production techniques.
To achieve the best levels of water resistance, SIO (Italian School of Watchmaking founded by LOCMAN in 2006) engineers have worked on all Stealth case components so as to reinforce them.
Marina di Campo, December 2013 – For the creation of the first mechanical self-winding chronograph, the SIO – Italian School of Watchmaking, part of the LOCMAN group, was partnered by DePa Swiss Movements, an enterprise of Swiss artisans specialised in movement concept and development.
Everyone has a dream of freedom, of landing on a happy island. The LOCMAN ITALY design department is keenly aware of this, having chosen the symbolic and marvellous island of Elba as the headquarters in which to design unique and extraordinary watches.
Consistently pursuing its strongly sporting vocation, the MONTRECRISTO watch by LOCMAN appears endowed with avant-garde technical features that guarantee an even higher level of sturdiness and water resistance.
History is the latest new release from Locman, a colourful, elegant and decidedly cool watch featuring a sophisticated design radiating a cosmopolitan and original style.
One year after the release of the first LOCMAN 1960, the Elba watchmaking company has decided to expand the range, which now welcomes the 1960 Chrono.
After the success achieved by the 1960s model, LOCMAN is enriching the collection dedicated to the Fabulous Sixties and with a Lady line: the 41 mm-diameter case mainly intended for a masculine audience is now joined by a smaller version in a 32 mm diameter that is thus ideally suited to even the smallest wrists.
The island of Montecristo has given its name to the iconic LOCMAN collection. Its unique and unmistakable profile stands out against the horizon visible from the Island of Elba, where LOCMAN has its headquarters. A land of legends and mystery, Montecristo offers an unspoilt natural setting reflecting the strong and passionate spirit of the Tuscany- based brand.
With its elegant design and pure, essential lines, the new LOCMAN collection interprets a contemporary mood closely attuned to that of the early 1970s, the most glamorous decade ever. Forever associated with Federico Fellini’s movie “La Dolce Vita”, the “fabulous Sixties” revolutionised lifestyles as well as fashion.
The case of the Toscano features a unique, cutting-edge design that is rounded, ergonomic and built all of a piece (in a ‘monohull’ construction), unlike the three usual sections.
Radiating high-tech refinement, liable to enhance a wide range of contemporary outfits and now at last on show in jeweller’s windows, MONTECRISTO LADY is the feminine version of the iconic watch from LOCMAN ITALY, the watch company headquartered on the Island of Elba.
Fitted with a broad, sturdy and reliable steel case, CHANGE watches come with a highlyinnovative internationally patented feature: the strap may be changed in one smooth moveat any time of the day by slipping it in and out of a dedicated slot on the back of the watch that works like a belt loop.
Their names are Stealth Video and Stealth Rectangular, and they exude the same energy and refined elegance as the highly successful Stealth One model. The aggressive urban aesthetics of the new models are enhanced by the choice of super high-tech materials such as titanium, and the new moisture-repellent silicon rubber of the straps.
