A Laco is more than a watch. It is an expression of character. Because, no matter whether you wear a robust aviator watch, a precise chronograph or a timelessly elegant classic on your wrist: each Laco has a unique character, which is distinguished by the love of detail and passion, with which our watchmakers built it: with complex and sophisticated craftsmanship.

Hand craftsmanship instead of industry is the credo of the German’s brand. That was the way it was when the company was founded, in 1925, and it’s more relevant today than ever before…

Laco Aachen is more than just a watch; it’s a proof of character. Also known by its code name “861690.2”, this Atypical Watch Pilot will take you back to the mid-twentieth century, when aviators looking for excitement, favored a legible, robust and precise timepiece. foolproof.

Discover the Laco Aachen, this automatic watch of character, proudly stamped “Made In Germany“.

Laco AACHEN 42 mm Automatic 861690-2

The first thing that any hobbyist will notice is probably this matte black dial, on which is superimposed indexes bright green and daring, allowing easy reading of the time.

Looking attentively at the dial, we notice that the indexes are not the only ones to be treated with this component, but that the hour, minute and second hands are also equipped with them.

Another interesting point, this male jewel is equipped with a crown of a relatively large size, almost disproportionate. The watchmakers as well as the designers of the brand have made the choice to remain faithful to the air watches of the Second World War, benefiting from large and thick crowns …

This detail was a sine qua non for pilots wielding the controls and the handle with thick gloves, which had to be able to reassemble their watches or set the time, without having to remove their equipment.

Finally, we appreciate the real leather strap of great strength, highlighting with the greatest success the brushed case of the watch, as well as sapphire crystal deemed scratchproof.

Germanic manufacture: Nippon Movement

The Laco Aachen 42 mm is equipped with a well-known movement, the Miyota 821 A. It is solid and can be used for automatic winding of the watch but not only: it also benefits from manual winding.

This function allows a winding of the power reserve by the crown at 3 o’clock, offering the opportunity for the owner of the timepiece to recharge its movement… even when the watch is not worn.

Finally, we will appreciate one last detail; which is a real pleasure for any lover of beautiful mechanics, namely a transparent case bottom. This allows the wearer to observe the mechanism in any condition … And at any time: Enjoy!
