Laco 42mm Augsburg Type A Dial Automatic Pilot Watch, New Sapphire Crystal #861688

The new version of the Laco Augsburg 861688 model now features a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. The 42mm case design houses a Laco 21 automatic (self-winding) movement. The Augsburg model has a black Type A (or pilot) dial with large hours. The hands and dial markers are treated with SuperLuminova for excellent readability in the dark. Like the original WWII Laco watches, there is no date window. Includes a really nice brown leather strap with rivets like those used in WWII.

    Great Watch, Great Price

    Posted by Justin on Aug 2nd 2020

    I've had this watch for about two weeks now, really enjoying this time piece. High quality, classic design, and suitable for every day use. The Miyota movement, even as a cost saving aspect of this watch, is plenty reliable and now features a hacking second hand. My only wish is that it had a 22mm lug width for a more proportional look, but that is my personal preference. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a classic high quality flieger at a great price. Great service from Long Island Watch! They were very responsive to my emails.

    A beauty

    Posted by Steve on Jul 30th 2020

    this is exactly what I want out of a pilot watch in this price range. Uncluttered almost sterile dial, great lume, NO DATE, thick strap. Excellent wrist presence. I might like it a bit more without the display back but I can live with that. Couldn't be happier.

    42mm Augsburg Type A Dial

    Posted by Anthony on Feb 28th 2020

    I was pleasantly surprised to see that it does indeed hack! Older YouTube videos from Marc showed a version which did not. I guess there are newer versions of this miota movement that do, this is one of those. Bonus. The strap is a big large for me. I have a 7" wrist and needed to use an all to punch a new hole to get a snug fit. Overall, very happy with this purchase. Beautiful watch.

    Laco Augsburg

    Posted by John Steel on Sep 23rd 2019

    The company did a great job and I love the watch very much. I was disappointed in the lume however. It does not show up nearly as much as the videos suggest.

    Laco Augsburg 42mm

    Posted by Bruno on Mar 12th 2019

    As soon as I unboxed the Laco Augsburg, I knew it would be one of my most favorite watches. Its simplicity makes it beautiful. The 42mm x 50mm size is about tops for my wrist, 7 inch, but it wears well. The leather strap is of excellent quality and is thick, almost 4mm thick throughout. I am at the last hole on the strap so if you have a small wrist, you might need to add a hole. You also might consider the 39mm model. The only negative I could find was the fact that it does not hack. If you are on the fence about buying one, jump off and place your order. You will not be sorry.
