LACO Aachen Blaue 39
For Pilot watch enthusiasts, Laco watches really needs no introduction. Founded in 1925, they were one of the original manufacturers of German Flieger watches. Still based in Pforzheim, Germany, Laco is known for their exacting quality, exceptional finishing, and attention to design detail.
The Aachen 39 is Laco's modern, well-priced update to the classic Navigator design. Featuring a "Type B" dial with an inner hour index and a large outer minute index. Roman sword hands that perfectly hit their respective marks make for easy reading at a glance. As per the name, this version features a 39mm case, rendered in beautifully finished brushed (taupe and black dials) and matte (blue dial) steel, giving the watch a lot of presence on the wrist.
Powering the Aachen is the Miyota 821A automatic movement. This Japanese caliber is well regarded for its reliability and rugged construction. The 821A features 21-jewels, 42 hr power reserve, quickset date, hand winding and a frequency of 21,600 beats per hour.
