Defending the seas
The launch of the Teseo Tesei, the first LOCMAN watch to feature the Italian naval crest, dates back to 2007. The model is dedicated to the Second World War hero of the same name, born in Marina di Campo on the island of Elba.
Now LOCMAN is reviving this key collaboration, introducing the brand-new Mare Marina Militare collection. Once again it pays tribute to this prestigious institution and celebrates those committed to protecting Italy’s seas, and the safety of seafarers, in the past, present and future.
The partnership has always been based on shared values: a love of the sea, championed with courage and passion, and the concept of Italianness, proudly represented throughout the world.
Once again, LOCMAN has the honour and privilege of using the logo of the Italian Navy, which is prominently displayed at 6 o’clock on the dial of both versions of the dedicated Mare model: a self-winding three-hand timepiece and a quartz chronograph.
Both are waterproof to 10 atm and are built with the marine environment in mind, both in terms of materials and components, and of the programme of initiatives supported by LOCMAN to preserve its delicate ecosystem.
The Mare Marina Militare case is made of 316L steel, also known as “marine steel” due to its excellent resistance to the corrosion from salt water. It is protected by innovative seals made of silicone, a synthetic material with self-lubricating properties. On the three-hand version – whose movement has been assembled and fine-tuned by the SIO’s own technicians – a blue PVD treatment makes the aesthetics even more evocative.
The technical excellence of the LOCMAN Mare Marina Militare is also evident in the soft curvature of the case middle, emphasised by the chronograph function buttons, which are well protected from shocks. The use of Allen screws to attach the two-tone silicone strap to the lugs is particularly interesting. Not only is it soft and hypoallergenic, it is also insensitive to temperature variations, UV rays and salt.
Two-tone silicone strap: not only is it soft and hypoallergenic, it is also insensitive to temperature variations, UV rays and salt. The titanium case back is secured with four screws to ensure a watertight seal.
