With the release of the Pilot Watch Original series, Laco has authentically recreated the observation timepieces produced by Laco in the 1940s. Details such as the plain dial without the logo, the Type A configuration of the dial, with 11 numerals and a triangle with two dots at the 12 o’clock position, and the classification number engraving all come from the original design of the Pilot Watches produced for military use by Laco.

  • The History:

The Laco brand was founded in Germany in 1925 by Frieda Lacher and Ludwig Hummel, who began producing the B-Uhren Observation watches during WWII for German pilots.  Following the war, the company had to rebuild its factory and was bought and sold multiple times, eventually being acquired by Erich Lacher Ruhrenfabrik, which was a company started
by Frieda Lacher’s son.  The company was then turned over to Horst Günther, company manager, who reintroduced the successful military-inspired models, such as the Bremerhaven and Cuxhaven
timepieces.

  • The Watch:

The Laco Pilot Watch Original Mülheim An Der Ruhr features a 39mm sandblasted steel case with a sapphire crystal and an engraved case back.  The black Type A dial features Arabic numerals and a triangle with two dots at the 12 o’clock position, lumed with Superluminova C3, and thermal-blued steel hands filled with Superluminova C3.  Powered by a manual wind Sellita SW210 movement, this pilot watch is water resistant to 100 meters.
