MONTECRISTO WORLD A DUAL-TIME MODEL FOR CONTEMPORARY TRAVELLERS

Montecristo World - Locman Italy

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.

Following in the wake of the Montecristo Automatic Chronograph and the Montecristo Rattrapante, LOCMAN now offers a new line extension: Montecristo World, representing a perfect combination of heritage and technology.

Driven by a high-precision Ronda quartz movement, the watch is equipped with a dual-time display appearing in a subdial at 6 o’clock, controlled by the second crown. The two time zones can thus be individually adjusted via their respective crowns, with any modifications to the main time zone entailing automatic adjustment of the second time zone.

The dial with its large date appearing through twin windows at 12 o’clock is framed by an inner bezel ring bearing the names of the world’s major cities. The smooth glass is extremely resistant thanks to a special sapphire treatment that also enhances its transparency. The broad 44 mm case in AISI type 316L steel and titanium features the appealing design for which the collection has become famous, with the characteristic triple-bar lugs holding it firmly to the strap in natural leather, hypo-allergenic silicon, or a high-quality stainless steel bracelet. Endowed with water-resistance tested to a pressure of 10 atmospheres (100 meters), Montecristo World comes in a choice of black, blue or white versions.
