Locman Montecristo Professional Diver Review

Locman Montecristo Professional Diver Watch Review

  Locman, a somewhat newer brand starting out in the later 1990’s, released a really nice looking new diver this year. The Locman Montecristo Professional Diver is an aesthetic stunner and should do quite well for Locman.
  The red accents have an excellent “pop” against the stark black dial and bezel. Many times on dive watches in particular the hands are not to W&R’s liking. The Montecristo hands have a nice shape, while adding a nice contrast. The watch is rated to 120m, this will strike some as odd for a diver, usually dive watches start at 200m. Not to fear, this watch has been tested extensively by S.I.O. and is even referenced at the 9 o’clock position. An awesome oversized crown adorns the Montecristo Professional Diver at the 3 o’clock position, along with a magnified date window. The lugs are skeletonized, adding a very unique look to this Locman. In the world of the over “saturated” dive watch market a little uniqueness goes a long way. The Montecristo is available with an automatic movement or quartz, with many dial and strap choices. Definitely worth checking out, the watch comes in on the lower side of 1K. 

Pros - Great looking diver, very cool lug design

Consideration - Extremely limited strap options do to lug design
