Locman has revealed the inner workings of one of its most iconic models, the Montecristo.
The newly-released Montecristo Open Heart’s eye-catching transparent dial and crystal aperture on the case back reveal the beating heart of a self-winding chronograph mechanism, the Swiss Sellita SW500 movement with 25 jewels and stop-second function.
To emphasise consistency, Locman offers a three year guarantee on the mechanism’s reliability.
Available in a range of colours, the transparent dial presents the three counters (hours, minutes, seconds) and a date aperture and is framed by a flange bearing the numerals and tachymetric scale.
The Italian flag at 6 o’clock represents the essence of Locman, as well as the importance the brand places in its roots.
The transparent dial of the Montecristo Open Heart is shielded by a flat mineral crystal with sapphire treatment.
The 44 mm AISI 316L surgical steel case alternates glossy and satin-brushed sections and is affixed to a hypoallergenic silicon or natural leather strap via the typical three-bar lugs incorporated into the case middle.
Closed with a titanium case back featuring an aperture that provides a view of the movement, the case of the Montecristo Open Heart is water-resistant to 10 ATM (100 metres).
For collectors, the Montecristo Open Heart also comes with a case with PVD Total Black or PVD Total Blue coating in a limited edition of 350 numbered timepieces in tribute to the 35-year anniversary of the Tuscan brand’s creation.
Additionally, and for those in search of something truly special, Locman offers the opportunity to customise the Montecristo Open Heart, creating a colour combination for the case, hands, dial and, naturally, the strap.
The customisation service will be available at all jewellers, single-brand stores and on the website.
