Laco Dortmund Type B Dial Swiss Mechanical Pilot Watch with Domed Sapphire Crystal #861751

The Laco Dortmund model was inspired by the original WWII Laco Pilot watches. Inside the 45mm sandblasted stainless steel case is a Swiss mechanical (hand winding) Laco 01, 17-jewel 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, anti-reflective domed sapphire crystal with an engraved steel case back. Like 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.

    Early Pilot Watch Always on Time

    Posted by Unknown on Oct 15th 2020

    I hate the term replica watch. Of course this watch is not as huge as the original but the design and readability make it a faithful recreation. The Type B is so easy to read even a kindergartner could tell the time looking at the dial. Besides the history this watch has serious craftsmanship with thermally blued hands. While this watch is available as an automatic I chose the self winding. You can easily feel when the watch has been fully wound. One youtube review for the automatic someone complained about the rotor being load which could be an exaggeration. The only Con is the crown probably coming into contact with your left hand while typing. I usually switch hands if typing a large document. Laco directly does have the option to switch the crown position but the minor annoyance probably isn't worth the extra money to change the crown position.
