There are pilot watches. And then there are pilot watches from Laco. As one of a few exclusive companies the workshop in Pforzheim can look back on a long tradition. Whereas in the 1940s a Laco was an indispensable tool in the cockpit, today it is an expression of freedom. With a Laco pilot watch you are not only wearing a precise and robust watch on your wrist, but also a piece of history.
The pilot watch 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 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.
