I still remember the first time I saw samples of Locman watches with my father. It seemed for an interesting product, light to carry around the wrist and absolutely new.

Many years have passed since then and today I have confirmation of what we thought then: Locman is a successful brand of made in Italy in the clock world, always a monopoly of Swiss.

The birth of trademark Locman

The brand was founded in 1996 by Marco Mantovani, which led to such a claim in the market to receive brilliant reviews in the most important international magazines.Locman is also apparently a wrist stars such as Sharon Stone, Susan Sarandon, Elton John and David Beckham, I said it all!

Do you know where is born the brand? In Marina di Campo, in the beautiful island of Elba, where Ma and his team initially created objects of small leather goods, including straps for watches of big brands. From there he began the partnership with the world of watchmaking, which became in later years getting tighter.

Having long designed watches for others, in 1997 the big leap: the first collection Locman, away from traditional patterns, but with high quality handmade finish.

Locman watches

The striking thing is that Locman pays great attention to the opportunities offered by advanced technologies.

One example is the new carbonmodel, first watch in the world made with carbon fiber.

As you will have understood: the combination of originality and technological innovation is the winning of this brand. If in addition there add a price range contained(between 200 and 700 euros), I’d say the result is optimal!

Take, for example, the Stealth One: brushed steel tonneau case, breathable rubber strap, a great degree of impermeability (10 atmospheres, which is 50 metres), a handsome dial with applied indexes and Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 in red tones. In short, a clock with lots of style, originality and an attractive price: 345 Euros.

It is clear that all these ingredients together have produced the commercial success of Locman on a large scale.

We mark the Montecristo series, with stainless steel black coated with a ceramic compound (thin film), which makes it resistant to impact and wear resistance.

For women, however, the series History is very pretty and original, with its mother of Pearl Dial and leather strap with crocodile print. The version with Fuchsia strap is just beautiful and funny, don’t you think?

You want me to say, watch lovers should not miss a Locman, Italian charm in the world of tick-tock!

By the way, if you can’t beat the Tuscan sailing regatta for the Trofeo Locman: every year the sponsor is giving away beautiful watches. You have time to arrange for next September, and also to invite me here.
