Ducati and Locman Team Up to Create Sports Watch Collection

By Paul Joseph

Two renowned Italian brands, motorbike makers Ducati and watch designers Locman, have teamed up to present a new watch billed as expressing the hi-tech nature and competitive spirit of the world of motorcycling.

The Ducati Locman watch is the result of an innovative  project that combines quality movements with materials including titanium, carbon fibre, stainless steel and silicone – all known for their incredible lightness and resistance to stress, as well as their pleasing textures.

With its unique and sporty design, the model is described by its makers as bringing 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 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 strap, meanwhile, comes in perforated hypoallergenic silicone and is attached to the steel case using two lug screws.

Each of the special edition Ducati Locman watch models will be available in 1,000 numbered pieces from all Locman Boutiques and exclusive jewellery shops from April, priced at between €698 and €750.
