LOCMAN – DUCATI: A LIMITED EDITION OF 3000 NUMBERED PIECES FOR THE SPORTS WATCH THAT COMBINES THE EXPERTISE OF TWO LEADING ITALIAN BRANDS
To mark the 93rd edition of Pitti Uomo, LOCMAN presents its new watch to the international public, a product born from the partnership agreement it signed with Ducati in early 2017.
The style centres of the two leading Italian brands worked together to design and develop this new timepiece. “We sought to transmit the energy and expertise of both companies into the project”, explains Marco Mantovani, Chairman of LOCMAN. “We believe that the two teams have a lot in common, as do all fans of LOCMAN and DUCATI. Our guiding values are the same: Italian style, performance, reliability and also an unconventional approach to life”.
The new collection of watches expresses the hi-tech nature and competitive spirit of the world of motorcycling. The unforgettable and exhilarating experience of a motorbike race or journey is made possible by the exceptional performances of ultra-sophisticated engines and aerodynamic designs with materials that are highly resistant to both wear and the most severe forms of stress. In the same way, the LOCMAN DUCATI watch was designed and produced according to an innovative construction project that combines quality movements with materials like titanium, carbon fibre, AISI 316L stainless steel and silicone, which are known for their incredible lightness and resistance to stress, but also for their pleasant textures.
This model, with its unique and sporty design, therefore brings together man and technology. The tonneau-shaped case, in brushed steel with polished details or brushed steel with a black PVD coating, is water-resistant to a depth of 100 metres and has a self-winding mechanical movement developed by S.I.O. (Scuola Italiana di Orologeria), which can be seen through a crystal pane on the titanium case-back, or a quartz chronograph mechanism. The grey enamelled dial with sunray effect or in carbon fibre has the Ducati logo at 6 o’clock and the Locman logo at 3 o’clock. The hands, bigger than normal, enable the wearer to tell the time without any problem even in extreme situations. The strap, in perforated hypoallergenic silicone, is attached to the steel case using two lug screws.
The special edition LOCMAN DUCATI will be available in 3000 numbered pieces from April 2018 in LOCMAN boutiques and all good jewellers.
