Laco: traditions

Authentic: even when the original pilot’s watch was dispensed brand name

The Pforzheim watch brand LACO belongs without any doubt to the legends of German watchmaking – also if the name is perhaps not as familiar to the general public, such as long or Junghans. It belonged to the company founded in 1925, in the 1930s and 1940s to the few manufacturers that were allowed to equip the German air force with air – and deck watches.

Without any militaristic ambitions LACO maintains this tradition with a small collection of Aviator watch models in the authentic vintage look. Finally, this clock class enjoys due to their good readability not only with pilots of very popular.

Distinctive: the B-Uhr enlarged hand with a small hour hand

LACO brings the pilot’s watch in two variants, both of which rely on historical models. Particularly striking is the so-called B-Uhr, in which the hand is strongly brought to the fore. It is also authentic that both watches without names or logos on the dial.

Both versions have the identical sand-blasted stainless steel housing with a diameter of 45 mm. The inner workings of the watches is the same: a hand-wound movement, which carries the designation 04 at LACO, behind a slightly modified ETA 2804-1. A glass floor allows views of the work.

Watches available for 1498 EUR are worn with a black leather strap.
