Locman Introduces Squalo Watch for Sea Lovers

Jun 08, 2009
Locman, headquartered on the Island of Elba, presents the new Squalo watch, with the name translated as “shark” from Italian. The watch is destined to win the hearts of passionate sea lovers. The timepiece created as a reliable diving companion for professional use as it is resistant to impacts and is characterized by remarkable lightness and water-tightness.

The Locman Squalo watch has been created in two versions - one equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement and the second one fitted with a quartz chronograph movement.

The rotating bezel of the watch is worth special attention – it is provided with a colorful insert printed with big Arabic numerals and hour-markers offering supreme readability and clear read-off below the water. The zest of the bezel is also a stamped tiny silhouette of the shark linking the 0 of the 20 numeral. The central part of the titanium case-back demonstrates the same signature detail.

The Squalo watch features a sturdy case construction and powerful, outsized shapes, created using high-tech materials.

The case of the timepiece
is created in satin-brushed titanium, an exclusive super-light and highly resistant alloy elaborated in the brand’s laboratories to acquire improved biocompatible properties. The central body of the watch, also in titanium, features a knurled crown provided with a triple o-ring seal, a device that guarantees supreme water resistance down to 100 meters.

The chronograph version incorporates pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock, also provided with double o-rings inside the pusher protector.

The case-back of the watch is secured with four screws. The dial is protected by a flat scratch-resistant glass, resistant to extremely high pressures. The strap of the watch is fitted with a steel folding clasp with double safety fastening.

The chronograph version of the Squalo watch is available with a black, orange and silvered dial, featuring the minute counter at 12 o’clock and the hour counter at 9 o’clock. The seconds counter is presented at 6 o’clock, with the large central hand indicating the chronograph seconds.

All the watch hands, with the exception of the long central seconds pointer, are coated with a luminescent substance for optimal readability under reduced light conditions.
The version with a self-winding movement reveals a blue or black dial.

The matt black or colored rubber straps are provided with special air holes to make the straps perfectly breathable even when it is hot.

The Locman Squalo watch is also available with a strap in titanium and thermoplastic resin, or a Cordura strap in a variety of colors.
