LOCMAN RELAUNCHES THE ICONIC STEALTH
Presented for the first time in 2008, the Stealth collection contributed to build the brand globally. 10 years later, Locman presents the new edition entirely revamped both in design and technology, focusing on functional and technical features with a modern touch.
Locman's creative department worked on the design of the new Stealth by focusing on perfecting the aesthetic and functional advantages representing the strengths of the first collection. Inspired by the legendary 1980s American aircraft capable of flying invisible to radar thanks to a skilful use of design and new technologies, the Stealth case is reduced from 43 to 41 mm, thus enhancing both lightness and wearability.
The caseband lines are softer, the corners less intrusive. For those who prefer a colour-block look, the case is also available with blue or total black PVD coating. The dial is embellished with a wave-shaped graphic motif evoking one of Locman's most valuable elements, the True Spirit: a reference to its deep bonds with the sea and Nature. A special sapphire treatment makes the natural Stealth glass both more resistant and more transparent. The new Stealth is available in versions with a time-only movement or a quartz chronograph mechanism, both enhanced with a date display. In the chronograph interpretation, the mineral crystal is equipped with a magnified window facilitating read-off. The counters are positioned as follows: running seconds subdial at 6 o’clock; chronograph hour counter at 9 o’clock, and chronograph minute counter at 12 o’clock. The minute counter carries a distinctive design feature, showing the starting point at 3 o’clock with a “zero” marking.
The choice of materials once again reflects Locman's focus on skin-friendly components, which are strictly hypoallergenic and designed to facilitate wearability and durability. The case is made of AISI 316L stainless steel, a stainless steel also used in surgery. The caseback, secured to the case by four screws, is made of titanium, an ultra-light material characterized by extremely high resistance to corrosion and totally biocompatible.
Thanks to a new silicon compound, the straps of the new Stealth are even softer and more velvety.
The holes that run the entire length ensure perfect breathability. The colours, in strictly plant-dyed shades, systematically recall natural elements and range from yellow to red, from light blue to blue, as well as darker tones such as anthracite grey or black. For a more elegant and less sporty outfit, Stealth is also available with a natural leather strap. Water resistance tested to 5 ATM.
