Our replicas are authentic reproductions of the original Laco pilot watches of the 40s. Among the key features are the iconic dial, the characteristic onion crown, the original pilot strap and the refined surface finish of the
case. Back then, pilot watches were an essential instrument in the cockpit. Precision had to be guaranteed, even in the toughest circumstances.
Only a handful of companies, including Laco, were authorised to produce pilot watches. The design of the 55 mm size original pilot watch has become a classic and sets the standard for many watches today.
The original Laco replicas stick closely to the blue-print from those times.

Model A was created in the 1940s for aviators and is characterised by a simple design with numbered hours. The dial with a large hour circle indicates the numbers 1 to 11. For better readability the pilot watch model A has a triangle with two points in place of the Arabic numeral "12". The triangle made sure that the wearer of the watch could see the hands at “12” at a glance, even with poor visibility and difficult flight conditions or under stress. These two points also make it easier to precisely set the watch in difficult visibility conditions.
