Laco Memmingen Type A Dial Swiss Mechanical Pilot Watch with Sapphire Crystal #861746

The Laco Memmingen model was inspired by the original WWII Laco Pilot watches. Inside is a Swiss mechanical (hand wind) Laco 04 movement. The thermal blued hands and the dial markers are treated with SuperLuminova C3 for excellent readability in the dark. Like the original WWII Laco watches, there is no date window. Features a scratch resistant domed sapphire front crystal with an engraved steel case back. In accordance with the original Luftwaffe models, the unique Laco case has FL23883 engraved on the 9:00 side. Includes a brown leather strap with rivets and a zippered box.

    Very satisfied

    Posted by Piper on Jan 21st 2020

    I choose the Type A watch as I wanted something with large numbers and an original aviator watch. In my opinion the watch is much nicer than what the pictures afford and I’m happy with the Laco’s quality. My emails with Marc were extremely helpful in choosing the appropriate size watch for my wrist. My experience with Long Island Watch was first class and I would purchase from Marc again.

    Laco Memmingen Type A Dial Manual Wind

    Posted by Bob on Aug 25th 2019

    I have been wearing this watch for about a week and find it very comfortable and light on my 6.75"(171mm) wrist. No problem with the crown pinching my wrist. The dial is very legible and the lume is very bright in the dark. The shipping carton was very sturdy and the watch was safely protected inside. Shipped to Ohio very quickly. Thanks Mark!

    Great watch. Prefer this A-dial over the B, very easy to read. Gets noticed a lot. True to the original style. ETA movement, sapphire crystal with a slight dome. Very nicely done.

    Classic Style, Great Watch

    Posted by Liam V. on Jan 30th 2017

    I knew I wanted a Pilot style watch as the cleanliness of the design fit well with my aesthetic sense, and the big uncluttered dial fit well with my rapidly failing eyesight. I looked around at probably 10 different brands of varying expense, in winding, automatic and quartz. The Memmingen won out purely by the power of its design -- no other watch managed to combine the chunky utility of the Pilot dial with the elegant manufacture of a fine timepiece. The shape and quality of the numbers, the thin frame of blued steel around the bright luminova on the hands, the graceful arc of the crystal and the assured thickness of the band.
