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.
With the Laco Erbstück collection, the German brand presents the lineup of "heirloom" pieces (vintage-style pilot timepieces). ("Heirloom" is the English translation of the German word Erbstück) The Laco Flieger Erbstück watches are carefully hand-aged to replicate old military watches from the World War II era. Using techniques originally developed to forge antique collector watches, Laco has turned those practices to good by openly creating the “used” look in new watches. Despite the careful wear on the stainless steel case, the sapphire crystal is left pristine. The Flieger Erbstück watches are waterproof up to 5 ATM, have closed-loop calf leather straps with rivets, and large dials with thermally blued steel hands covered in Superluminova coating.
