LOCMAN AND DUCATI TOGETHER AGAIN AT PITTI IMMAGINE REVVING UP ON THE STARTING LINE IS A NEW WATCH COLLECTION FROM TWO ITALIAN EXPONENTS OF EXCELLENCE
The sporty, high-tech, high-performance new watches in the Locman Ducati collection are enriching a cult series created for devotees of Made in Italy craftsmanship and motorcycles. For the launch of the new line, the style centres of the two Italian companies worked as a team, giving life to a watch line embodying the iconic characteristics of the two brands: a sporting spirit, avant-garde design and a powerful passion for exclusive design.
The new Locman Ducati is composed of four models corresponding to different mechanisms: a quartz-driven time-only version, a quartz chronograph with two counters (24-hour counter and chronograph minutes counter); a quartz chronograph with three counters (running seconds, chronograph hours and minutes counters), and a mechanical self-winding time-only interpretation. All of them feature recurrent variations of a circular graphic motif that adds a dynamic and light touch to the watch.
It appears in the wide breathing holes of the silicon straps, in the apertures on the sides of the lugs, in the shapes of the seconds hand counterweight and in the circles on the pusher grips. The 42mm-diameter case is made of satin-finished 316L surgical steel, with polished bezel and pushers. The waterproof crown bears the Ducati badge and has a double internal silicon gasket that ensures enhanced water resistance.
The dial, surrounded by an inner bezel ring bearing a minutes scale, is inspired by Ducati instruments and the racing world, with a coloured band (in the classic Ducati shades of red or yellow) marking the first 15 minutes. In the version with a self-winding mechanism, the Locman Ducati movement is a SIO1 calibre developed by the Scuola Italiana di Orologeria, LOCMAN’s internal academy of LOCMAN. Featuring a black Ducati personalised oscillating weight ensuring a power reserve of 40 hours, the Locman Ducati Automatic movement is visible through the crystal pane set into the back of the watch.
The straps are available in soft hypoallergenic silicon or natural padded leather with contrasting stitching.
