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.

The Laco Original Venedig 42 mm is equipped with a well known movement, the ETA 2824.2 (Edited). Solid proof, it allows an automatic winding of the watch but not only: it also benefits from a manual winding and a stop-second
The first allows a winding of the movement via the crown located at 3 o’clock; turning it vertically.
The stop-second meanwhile, guarantees a total stop of the seconds hand when the crown is pulled two notches.
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!
