In the south of the Tuscan Archipelago, far from the coast and off the beaten tourist track, a mountainous cone rises out of the sea. This is the distinctive outline of the island of Montecristo. Locman dedicates a collection to its rocky coast, soaring sheer above the sea and the amazing colours of its waters. Cutting-edge technology and the added value of state-of-the-art design exuding a special empathy with a sea that is powerful, deep and exciting, thrilling everyone who comes close to this Treasure lsland.
The perfect combination between Swiss artisans’ know-how and the Italian School of Watchmaking – specialised in movements and construction techniques – an in-house academy whose intention is to establish a research centre and constant monitoring the quality of their watches – gave birth to the first Locman chronograph driven by a mechanical movement.
The Montecristo timepiece has an exclusive and elegant design with an AISI 316L steel and titanium case. Due to the flat glass with sapphire treatment, the crystal is harder and more transparent.
The Montecristo watch is available with a self-winding mechanical movement or with quartz mechanism.
The oscillating weight is enhanced with a bride yellow shade and personalised with the LOCMAN ITALY logo. The calibre reference – SIO/DPch 88 – is indicated on the movement mainplate.
The sophisticated Montecristo mechanical movement, can be admired thanks to a glass with a sapphire treatment on the caseback of the watch.
The dial features sunray-pattern enamelling, the minute counter is placed at 3 o’ clock and the small seconds subdial at 9 o’ clock, while the tachometric scale – absent in the quartz version – appears around the inner bezel ring of this model. The Montecristo case attaches to a silicon, Lorica or leather strap with its iconic triple-bar lugs.
