LACO Kiel Sport: Striking sportiness meets precision.

Laco expands its product line with a new chronograph 

The traditional watch manufacturer Laco adds with the Kiel Sport another chronograph to its range. The characteristic DNA of the product line is now complemented by a sporty accent. In contrast to the already established Kiel.2 models, the Kiel Sport offers a unidirectional rotating bezel. Fans of the Pforzheim watch manufacturer are already familiar with and appreciate this equally functional and distinctive feature from the squad watch series. Thanks to state-of-the-art materials, robustness, and precision, the new timepiece with stopwatch function is a stylish and reliable companion both in everyday life and during outdoor sports activities – captivating not only pilots but all those who appreciate the extraordinary. 


As one of the few manufacturers of the legendary observation watches, Laco has been deeply rooted in the history of pilot watches for decades. The renowned German brand once again sets standards in this particularly popular watch category with the new timepiece. With authentic features such as the matte case surface, strong contrasts, or the pilot triangle at 12 o'clock, the distinctive design of the Kiel Sport reflects the essence of Laco and its connection to aviation. The clear pilot watch aesthetics of the dial are also unmistakable, deliberately kept matte black to ensure quick and glare-free time display from any angle. 

The bright indices, Arabic numerals, and hands, with the hour and minute hands additionally thermally blued, create clear contrasts under the anti-reflective sapphire crystal and harmoniously integrate into the Tricompax design. The generous coating with intensely luminescent Superluminova C3 on hands, numerals, indices, and the pilot triangle ensures optimal readability even under adverse lighting conditions. 

The minute scale of the unidirectional rotating bezel is also coated with this luminous material, glowing greenish in the darkness. For exceptional functionality and unsurpassed durability, the insert is made of high-quality ceramic. This ceramic bezel offers numerous advantages, including exceptional hardness and scratch resistance, color stability, and corrosion resistance. The rotating bezel is designed to be particularly grippy for easy operation even with gloves, giving the watch an overall technical look. The 60-click ratcheting allows for precise adjustment of time or other measurements in small one-minute increments. 


In contrast to the Kiel.2 models, the 43-millimeter stainless steel case has a dark sandblasted surface. This surface treatment not only prevents reflections and contributes to an expressive, monochrome appearance but also connects with the other Laco pilot watches that share this special feature. Inside the pressure-tested case, up to 10 ATM, beats the automatic chronograph caliber Laco 500, based on the Swiss Sellita SW500. In addition to the chronograph functions, it also displays the day of the week and the date. After fully wound, the Laco 500 guarantees an impressive power reserve of 56 hours. 

The authentic pilot watch comes with a black calf leather strap with light stitching. This is rounded off by a dark sandblasted pin buckle with the Laco logo, which echoes the finish of the case.
