Locman has extended their Aviatore range with some automatic models; previously the range comprised quartz models. At €525, the Aviatore Automatico is a low-priced automatic, comparable to the Mondia 1946 Aviator and the German brands Laco, Archimede and Stowa. The Locman Aviatore has a very nice case, with graceful lines and two interesting colours, navy blue and chocolate brown, as well as black, created by PVD-coating the steel. Dials are in sunray finish enamel, with a carbon-fibre version also available. The watchglass has a cyclops-type lens over the date window.
The case is 44 mm in diameter, water-resistant to 50 metres, made in steel and titanium, with solid caseback. The dial indices and the hour and minutes hands are coated with SuperLuminova. Available in leather strap or silicone rubber.
