Laco_Piloten_1942.gif

It got cold in those planes, the crowns were large so the boys in the air could wind them with their gloves on. The movements were the best German watchmakers could manage, mostly pocket watch movements so the watches were large, legible and worn over the jacket sleeve.  Laco was chosen along with Wempe, IWC, Stowa, and A. Lange to produce these watches for the Luftwaffe. Today Laco makes the most accurate (albeit in more usable sizes) tributes ever offered while incorporating the best  technologies of the modern era and an affordable price range opening at under $300

Limited Edition 55mm Replica watch.  
Limited to 50 pieces and almost sold out, these
massive examples are the closest living relatives
to the genuine article that money can buy. We do
however have a new 45mm replica models that
have just been introduced (shown below) with
thermally blued hands and a true to the original
crown, high grade Swiss hand winding movement and a nice exhibition back. These models come on the original style, closed  loop strap. Available in either A or B dials these two new offerings are more affordable and easier to wear than their huge grand daddy but still capture the pedigree & character of the original.

Laco_2012_side.jpg

 Laco's collection of 40's style pilot watches
 pays homage to the original as never before.
 The bead blasted case features historically
 acurate markings on the side and on the 
 solid steel caseback. Note that the watches
 don't show the date or logo on the dial, as
 was the case with the original military issue
 and they offer period correct blue hands. 
 Anti-reflective (AR coating on the inside of the glass) 
 domed sapphire crystal 
help emulate 
 the look of the old bubble style hesalite crystals.

 Laco watches carry 2 year warranty.
The collection below represents Laco's most accurate homage to the original look (in smaller than 55mm size) ever. These watches emulate the original dark gray finish & the hands are actually blued in a thermal process as in the old days.

   

Available in 42mm & 45mm cases and in Swiss made quartz & automatic or hand wound mechanical executions, all watches have A/R coated sapphire crystals.
All models in this series will hack set so you can synchronize with the rest of your squadron
