Laco 42mm Aachen Type B Dial Automatic Pilot Watch, New Sapphire Crystal #861690

The new version of the Laco Aachen 861690 model now features a scratch resistant sapphire crystal (only a diamond can scratch it). The 42mm case design houses a Laco 21 automatic (self-winding) movement. The Aachen model has a black Type B (or bomber) dial with large minutes. 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.

    Nice Watch

    Posted by Keith M. on May 18th 2020

    I have had this watch for a few weeks, and have been very pleased. The watch keeps good time and the “B” dial is a cool look! I did a lot of research, and there are lots of quality fliegers out there. Ultimately, Laco’s history as one of the original manufacturers of flieger watches was the deciding factor. I was also pleasantly surprised to learn that the second hand hacks. Pleased with my purchase. This is my second purchase from LIW, but not my last - great customer service and a very trustworthy online retailer!

    I was not disappointed when i received this amazing and deceptively simple yet beautiful watch. I bought this as a gift for a close friend, but will definitely get one for myself in future. The green indicies/arabic numerals on black dial really hit a nerve for me. sounds gushy, sorry. LIW team end to end service: Excellent as always!

    Superb German Engineering of a watch.

    I can't complain about the service I received with Long Islandwatch . The website was very user friendly and easy check out. Although I am very good about watches as a hobby for many years, I have never bought a German watch as they are not known to be up to the Swiss by historical precedent. I am astounded by the high quality and refinement of the Japanese movement in this entry model by Laco. I am having a blast with it on my wrist daily. It fits perfectly and the weight is just right. I look for the next Laco up the line hopefully soon. Thanks!

    Great watch, described well and detail. Price was good and even better witha Black Friday discount. Purcase, shipping, packaging and delivery were all smooth. Delivery from US to AU however took the better part of a month.

    Loved the story behind this watch, but sceptical of the amount of ‘green’ on the face that was coming across in videos. Ordering was really easy and after a week the watch arrived here in Canada with no extra charges at the door. The watch is gorgeous, the green face is really a non issue and the quality of this watch is amazing. The strap is thick but easy to work with after a few days and the smell of leather is pretty cool to. The strap is quite large, I have just over a 7” wrist and I have to use the last hole to make it fit. A smaller wrist will definitely require a new notch in the very thick strap. Overall extremely pleased and will be buying from Marc again!
