Locman watches | Official dealer

Posted on 27 September 2021 at 3:28 PM

The most popular watch brand in the country is located on the Italian island of Elba. We are talking about the Locman watch brand. Locman offers watches of excellent quality with high technology, in combination with the well-known Italian class and style. Locman knows how to distinguish itself from other watch brands in various ways. The brand is known for the vibrant use of color in the designs of the watches. This allows you to make a real statement with a Locman watch on your wrist.

The characteristic designs of the Italian brand are appealing and often function as a real eye-catcher. In addition, Locman offers watches with both automatic and quartz movements, so that there are sufficient options within the collection for every personal preference. In addition, the brand is known for the use of high-quality materials such as carbon fiber and titanium. Carbon fiber is extremely strong and has a sporty and modern look. Titanium offers the great advantage that it is very lightweight, so that the Locman watches are very comfortable to wear. Locman also knows how to offer diversity with its collection. There are models with watch straps made of rubber, leather and stainless steel. This means that the different watches immediately get a completely different look. This, in combination with the different types of timepieces, makes Locman attractive to a wide audience.

When you have discovered a watch brand that fits well with your personal preferences, you will of course be very excited when new models are added to the collection. This also applies to us as an official dealer of Locman. We are therefore very enthusiastic about the addition of several new Locman models to our range. These are new Locman Montecristo watches. Montecristo is the most popular design and can also be called the showpiece of Locman. We would like to make you as excited as we are about these brand new models from Locman. We will therefore take a closer look at 2 models of these Montecristo designs, to get an idea of ??what the new Locman models have to offer.

We start with the Locman Montecristo 41mm 0542A01S-00BKORSO watch. This is a very nice example of a watch with a colorful look. Both the rubber watch strap and the accents on the black dial are in the color orange and therefore very striking. The watch case is made of a combination of stainless steel and titanium and has a diameter of 41 mm and thickness of 14 mm. This watch has a quartz movement and is water resistant to 100 meters. By using sapphire glass, you don't have to worry about scratches or other damage. This watch closes with a folding clasp. Also technically this is a nice complete watch. This model offers a seconds hand and a date display, but you also have luminous indicators and a chronograph function at your disposal.

A second model that we would like to explain is the Locman Montecristo Carbon 0544C09S-CBCBWHSB watch. This watch is also made in a striking color, namely clear blue. We see this color reflected in the watch strap and as an accent on the dial. The watch strap is made of rubber and closes with a folding clasp. Furthermore, the watch case is made of carbon fiber, which makes the case extremely sturdy. This case has a diameter of 41mm and a thickness of 14mm. With a high-quality automatic movement and a water resistance of 100 meters, this watch is suitable for intensive use. This watch also uses strong sapphire glass. Looking at the technical aspects, this watch offers a date display, second hand and luminescent indicators. So again a complete picture.

Watch winder for 1 watch

Posted on 22 September 2021 at 10:59 AM

A watch winder is the most commonly used watch accessory for automatic watches. It ensures that the watches are optimally supplied with energy and therefore keep running on time. A stationary automatic watch is a thing of the past with a watch winder. This watch accessory gently rotates the watches, tensioning the spring in the movement. This keeps the watch running and therefore it's immediately ready to wear. So you never have to wind the watch and reset the time and date again. Handy, but also good for preserving your automatic watches.

In this article we write about the watch winder for 1 watch. This type of watch winder is often compact and has one motor that drives the rotor on which the watch is attached. Watch winders for 1 watch are often relatively small and compact. Usually they are purely focused on accomplishing their task, winding 1 automatic watch, and offer little extra luxury and functions. With watch winders that are suitable for winding multiple watches, you often see that they have extra storage space, LED lighting or a door. A watch winder that is suitable for winding 1 automatic watch often does not have these properties. However, this does not mean that they wind automatic watches less well. On the contrary, they do exactly what they are intended to do.

There is a lot of choice in the field of watch winders for 1 watch. Well-known brands that every watch lover knows are Swiss Kubik, Benson and Bernard Favre. But RDI from Switzerland and Chronovision from Germany also make excellent watch winders with which you can wind one automatic watch.

If you want to wind larger and heavier watches, the choice for a Japanese, German or Swiss motor is definitely recommended.

If you are looking for a watch winder for 1 watch under 200 euro (incl. VAT), we have a few interesting models for you. The Benson Compact 1.17. Black Leather watch winder is a good example. This model is compact, black in color and covered with beautiful leather. You can set this model via the LCD screen on the back so that you can select the direction of rotation and the number of revolutions per day. The watch holder is flexible and suitable for any common watch. Actually, the above properties also apply to the Benson Compact Single 1.WAS watch winder. Only this model is made of walnut wood and has a beautiful chrome ring around the rotor for an extra luxurious look. If you want a sportier model with a carbon fiber look, then you should go for the Benson Compact 1.17. Carbon Fiber watch winder. This watch winder offers everything you need to provide an automatic watch with perfect energy.

If you have a little more to spend and would like to buy a watch winder with a German motor, Chronovision watch winders are a good choice. This brand starts from 479 euro (incl. VAT). These models that are suitable for winding 1 watch are made in Germany and have a strong motor. Another nice advantage is that each model is equipped with Bluetooth technology, so you can set the watch winder via an app via the bluetooth connection of your mobile phone.

Mare Unlimited watches with the Rolex look

Posted on 3 September 2021 at 12:57 PM

If you are a lover of Rolex watches we have something interesting for you. If this is completely your cup of tea, but you have a smaller budget, we have a very nice alternative. We are talking about the new watch brand Mare Unlimited. If you are looking for a watch of high quality for a competitive price, then you have come to the right place at Mare Unlimited. The appearance of the Mare Unlimited watches can best be described as stylish and sporty. The Rolex look is clearly visible here. Not only in terms of design, but also in terms of quality and technology, Mare Unlimited has plenty to offer. The price/quality ratio of these watches is therefore very good. Let's take a closer look at the watches of this brand.

The watches from Mare Unlimited are equipped with a Swiss made quartz movement from the Ronda brand. With a watch with a Swiss heart you know that you are buying pure quality. After all, Switzerland is the watchmaking country pur sang. The Mare Unlimited watch cases have a diameter of 40 mm. This makes the models from Mare Unlimited very comfortable to wear. In addition, the watches are lightweight, which also benefits comfort. Moreover, this brand offers wonderful extra functionalities with every model. We are talking about SuperLuminova, a rotating bezel and a screw-down crown. With each individual watch from Mare Unlimited you therefore have a very complete watch, of very high quality for a very attractive price.

The modern models in the Mare Unlimited collection are equipped with quartz movements. These have the advantage over, for example, automatic timepieces that they display the time more accurately and are more resistant to shocks and impacts. What is also striking is the good water resistance of the watches and the use of rubber watch straps. These features, among other things, make the Mare Unlimited watches very suitable for the sporty man.

Mare Unlimited Greenwich MU40GMT.MRBK watch

The Greenwich models from Mare Unlimited are also equipped with black rubber watch straps. In combination with the slightly continuous stainless steel case, this gives the watches a luxurious look. The dials of these watches are black with white accents. In addition, most Mare Unlimited watches use one or more accent colors, for example at the bezel. Then think of blue, red, green or gold. For a sporty watch like this, the water resistance of the watches up to 100 meters in combination with a rotating bezel and screw-down crown is an absolute plus. The rubber watch strap is also of added value here, because it is very strong and light. This is of course important when you buy a sporty watch. Furthermore, only high-quality materials have of course been chosen. The sapphire glass, for example, is extremely strong, so that any scratches will hardly be visible. The stainless steel case is also very durable and strong.

We have just mentioned a number of extra functionalities that all Mare Unlimited watches meet. However, the Greenwich models from Mare Unlimited have even more to offer. They have a second hand, date display and luminous indicators. With the GMT function it is also possible to set a second time. This is of course ideal if you travel a lot and very handy on vacation.

Soon in our collection: Locman watches

Posted on 22 August 2021 at 4:50 PM

Italian watches are still very popular and trendy! Watches from Italy always have beautiful designs and are stylish. A good example of a watch brand from Italy is Locman. This brand has been producing very good quality watches for several decades. Watch enthusiasts who have ever been to Italy are certainly familiar with the brand. Locman watches are distinguished by their contemporary designs, sporty appearance and colorful accents on the dials and watch straps.

What makes a Locman watch so much fun and interesting? Let's take a closer look at this Italian watch brand.

Technology, innovation, Italian design and passion are the values ??on which Locman's identity is based. The concept of luxury conveyed by the brand's watches is affordable and suitable for any watch enthusiast.

Locman watches are made on the island of Elba, just meters from the sea, which is an inspiration for the brand. Locman, as a Tuscan brand, took the decision to emphasize its origins and create a 100% Italian watch brand that stands out in an international market dominated by major Swiss watch brands. With this in mind, certain strategic alliances have been formed, such as the collaboration with Ducati to create watch collections for fans of motorcycling and Italian design. Locman works closely with the Italian Ministry of Defense and the Premiership (English football) and produces watches for the Armed Forces, Special Forces and especially for the Italian Navy.

The story of Locman watches is closely linked to that of founder and chairman Marco Mantovani, who was born in 1961 in Marina di Campo on the island of Elba. Together with Fulvio Locci, he founded the watch brand Locman in 1986. Locman started out as a design agency for some of the major Swiss watch brands before becoming a self-branded watch manufacturing company. In the late 1980s, Genesi, a renowned Milanese watch factory that had been operating since the 1950s, became Locman's manufacturing partner, enabling the company to offer high-quality watches produced in Italy at prices well below those in Switzerland. Thanks to Genesi and his technical expertise, Locman took the plunge and started designing and manufacturing watches under his own label. The first Locman watch was made entirely by hand, with parts in gold and thorn root, a precious wood typical of Elba and the Mediterranean scrub. At that time, Claudio Fanucchi joins Locman as a shareholder. In 1990, Carlo Crocco, owner of the prestigious Geneva brand Hublot (now part of the LVMH group) bought a stake in Locman and offered to distribute its products worldwide. This was an ideal growth opportunity for the Tuscan brand.

In 1996, during one of his regular visits to America, Marco Mantovani was waiting at a customs office on a small Caribbean island when he saw an old photo of the lighthouse at Punta Polveraia on Elba. It was a moment that touched him deeply. Marco was thousands of miles away from the places and people he loved, and those few minutes were decisive. At the time, he divided his time between Milan, Switzerland and his regular travels around the world. But his real home was on Elba, where Locman had maintained a branch and shop.

On his return to Italy, Mantovani decided to take back control of the company, which was once again 100% Italian, and to move the main production site to Marina di Campo, a stone's throw from the sea. Two old friends joined the company, Giuseppe Pea from Brescia and Ben Feigenbaum from Miami.

Watch sales grew strongly, especially in the United States. The design, colors and use of innovative materials such as aluminum, sometimes combined with diamonds, were key to the company's worldwide success. Demand exceeded production capacity and Locman watches became highly sought after by international stars: Jennifer Lopez, Sharon Stone, Nicole Kidman and Elton John are just a few of the personalities photographed wearing watches made on Elba.

In December 2000, Hopa SPA, a major Italian financial company and a major shareholder of, among others, Telecom Italia, joined Locman's share capital. For Locman, this arrival marked a significant change in pace, both in terms of governance and international investment. It was in this context that prestigious collaborations began with the Italian Armed Forces, leading to the launch of collections with the decals of the Air Force, the Folgore Paratroopers and the Navy. In 2002, Locman became the official supplier to the English Premiership and his products were later chosen by President Berlusconi to be used as diplomatic gifts to various heads of state and international delegations.

Investments continued in new technologies and at Baselworld 2003 Locman presented the world's first watch with a carbon fiber case. The result of these developments is the Stealth Titanium and Carbon collection which is a big hit with the public. 2010 was the year in which the new Montecristo model was launched, a new milestone for Locman in terms of recognition and production quality. With its sporty, maritime spirit, the Montecristo watch collection has become a true icon of Italian watchmaking.

Locman watches are known and loved worldwide. Real watch lovers know the Italian brand and many who went on holiday in Italy returned with a Locman watch on their wrist. Locman currently has a very nice collection of excellent watches with quartz or automatic movements. The models are characterized by a sporty look and high-quality materials. The nice thing about a Locman watch, however, is the unique price/quality ratio. There are few watch brands in Europe that combine such quality with an interesting price.

Zeppelin watches

Posted on 7 August 2021 at 8:13 AM

Who does remember the majestic Zeppelin airships which have played a major role in aviation history? These Zeppelin airships were designed by the aviation pioneer Ferdinand Graff von Zeppelin and still manages to arouse the interest of many enthusiasts today. It is logically that these Zeppelin airships have served as a source of inspiration for the German watch brand Zeppelin. This well-known watch brand is part of the parent company Pointtec, which also includes the much-loved German brand Iron Annie. The brands Iron Annie and Zeppelin are very popular because of the combination of quality, original concept and attractive pricing. 

The Zeppelin watches are classically and traditionally designed and know how to take you back in time. A bit of nostalgia is certainly there. Zeppelin can therefore be called a watch brand with history. Zeppelin emphasizes this once again by the historical dials, specific details and the beautiful leather straps. Zeppelin offers a great diversity in the collection, partly because there is a choice of watches with mechanical, automatic and quartz movements. So no matter where your preference lies in this area, you can find your favorite watch at Zeppelin. What is also striking is that Zeppelin pays more attention to quality and finish, partly because it is a small brand/company. This is certainly reflected in the eye for detail and the beautiful finish of the watches. As far as the timepieces are concerned, Zeppelin uses quality timepieces of Swiss and Japanese origin. This concerns brands such as Sellita, Miyota and Eta.

The Zeppelin collection includes beautiful watches for both men and women. In addition, the brand offers a very good price-quality ratio. Combined with the variation in timepieces and the varied offer in terms of appearance of the watches, this makes Zeppelin attractive to a wide audience. The watches in the collection are divided into several series. A first beautiful series from the collection is the LZ120 Rome series. Within this series we find beautiful men's watches with a calm and classic look. The watch straps of these watches vary in various leather versions, naturally made by hand. In addition to a second hand and date display, these watches also have a beautiful moon phase function. This gives the whole that little bit extra and decorates the dial even more.

The next series from the Zeppelin collection is a series of women's watches, which were specially designed in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Zeppelin. These are the 'Princess of the Sky' watches. These watches have something very special to offer, because it is possible to wear them not only on the wrist, but also around the neck. When designing these watches, they tried to bring back the glamor of the 1920s. As far as we are concerned, this has certainly succeeded. The particularly beautiful dials are a real eye-catcher and both the watch straps and the watch itself are very stylish and graceful. In addition, there is a choice of dials that have a calm appearance and dials that are very expressive. High-quality materials such as stainless steel, extremely strong sapphire glass and particularly beautiful leather have been used for these watches. The watches close with a buckle clasp. In short, Zeppelin has brought a series of watches on the market especially for ladies, which are definitely worth a look, both in terms of quality and appearance.

A third series that we want to pay extra attention to is the Zeppelin Night Cruise series. These watches have a more tough and robust appearance and a sporty approach. In terms of color use, a lot of black has been chosen here, with red and white accents. The watches are water resistant to at least 50 meters and materials such as stainless steel PVD and hardened mineral glass have been used. The use of plastic has been chosen for the watch straps. There are nice extra functionalities such as a second hand, date display and a day display, but also a power reserve indication. These watches close with a buckle clasp.

The above series of watches are of course only a small selection from the Zeppelin collection. There are many more special series of watches to view, such as the Zeppelin Hindenburg series and the Zeppelin 100 years series. In any case, with a Zeppelin watch you are guaranteed a high-quality watch, which is completely made in Germany. Germany is known in this area for the good quality, reliability and solidity of the watches that come from there. In addition, Zeppelin watches are very affordable, so that you can also purchase a quality watch with a more limited budget. Especially if you like a watch with a story, a Zeppelin watch is highly recommended!

Ingersoll watches

If you are looking for a good quality watch with a stylish appearance, there is a lot of choice. Many brands offer good quality and each brand has its own look when we look at appearance and design. Over the years, various brands have been added that know how to produce beautiful watches, but a watch brand with a history and a special story will be the most attractive for most enthusiasts. A brand that has been active in the watch industry for more than a century and can now be called world famous is the American brand Ingersoll. Ingersoll was founded by the Ingersoll brothers. They wanted to market watches of good quality at an attractive price. In 1892 they bet on an automated production line with which they put a watch on the market for the price of 1 dollar. This so-called 'dollar watch' ensured that the brand became very well known. Ingersoll watches are now indispensable and the real enthusiast certainly knows them.

Over the years, Ingersoll has become very popular and famous. The brand managed to collaborate with well-known names such as Henry Ford and Disney, which allowed them to put themselves even more on the map. To this day, Ingersoll is known for its affordable watches, which in terms of quality are certainly not inferior to the more expensive variants. Ingersoll uses automatic timepieces where the craft of the watchmaker comes into its own. Another strong point of Ingersoll is that the brand has included various designs in the collection, which means that the brand is able to appeal to a wide audience. The designs of Ingersoll watches range from a more traditional and classic look to a more sporty and tough look. Women's watches have also been thought of, because in addition to an extensive men's collection, Ingersoll also offers various beautiful and elegant models for the ladies.

In this article we will discuss some Ingersoll watches in more detail, starting with the Ingersoll IN3900 SL Apache. This watch has a somewhat classic design and a stylish appearance. The combination of the black leather strap with the stainless steel case creates a sleek look. On the white dial we see a number of blue accents, which gives a playful effect. This watch is of course equipped with a reliable automatic movement in which no less than 20 precious stones are processed. The watch has several nice extra functionalities, such as a date display, second hand, luminous indicators and a nice chronograph function. In short, a watch with a luxurious appearance and striking technology at an attractive price.

The striking yellow color that contrasts with the black dial makes this watch very easy to read. This watch is also equipped with a quality automatic movement. The watch case is made of stainless steel PVD and hardened mineral glass has also been used. This watch is water resistant to 50 meters and closes with a buckle. The watch also has a seconds hand.

Furthermore, the watch has a date display, second hand, luminous indicators and a chronograph function. In other words, this is a watch that offers everything a true watch enthusiast could wish for.
