Like last year, Ducati and Locman – the watch-maker based on the Island of Elba (Tuscany, Italy) – will be together at Pitti Immagine to present the latest line of unique, high-tech sports watches for those with a passion for Italian flair and motorcycles.
For the launch of this second series the two Italian companies’ style centres have teamed up to create watches that embody their hallmarks: competitive spirit, cutting-edge technology and a passion for design.
The latest Locman Ducati collection consists of four models, each with a different mechanism, with prices ranging from €299 to €598: the quartz Solo Tempo (Time Only), the quartz twin-gauge Chronograph (with 24-hour time and chrono minutes), the three-gauge Chronograph (with continuous watch seconds, chrono hours and chrono minutes) and the Meccanico Automatico Solo Tempo (Mechanical Self-Winding Time Only).
All models feature a circular design, giving the watch dynamism and lightness. The case, which has a diameter of 42 mm, is made of brushed 316L surgical stainless steel with polished bezel and pushbuttons. The screw-down crown features the Ducati shield and has a dual internal silicone seal to improve waterproofing. The face, surrounded by a rehault marking out the minutes, takes its cue from Ducati instrumentation and the racing world, the coloured band highlighting the first 15 minutes. Straps are available in soft hypoallergenic silicone or natural padded leather with high-contrast stitching.
In short: a collection characterised by outstanding technological content that is immediately available in Italy and Japan, in Locman boutiques, in all the best jewellery stores, in selected Ducati Stores and internationally through www.locman.it
