Laco Friedrichshafen Type B Dial Swiss Automatic Pilot Watch with Sapphire Crystal #861753

The Laco Friedrichshafen model with a type B dial was inspired by the original WWII Laco Pilot watches. Inside is a Swiss Laco 24 automatic (self-winding) 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 45mm sandblasted case, a scratch resistant domed sapphire front crystal, and 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.

    A true aviation watch with rich history and legendry

    Posted by Andrew on Jul 1st 2021

    Absolutely perfection! If you know about watch making history in WWII, you will not get wrong with this one. Truly reproduce the golden time of the observation watch more than half century ago! It's so unique and I feel proud to wear it. With the super stable ETA2824-2, I just get -4s per day. It's a huge and tough one but it should be! It's all about the history, not just a tool watch.

    Simple and Vintage

    I wanted a German made watch and discovered the pilot watch. The Laco fit the bill. It had history, Swiss movement and looked authentic. The lum is awesome and the 45mm fills out my wrist nicely. The leather band is thick and attractive. I really like this watch, no negative issues.

    Love the watch. Have been keeping track of how it runs with a citizen quartz that is radio synced to the U.S. time clock and it is amazing. Super nice quality down to the strap as well as the zippered box. Very precise #s and indices on the dial. Excellent visibility in low light.Could not be more satisfied with the fit and finish. This is my second purchase from Island Watch.Both purchases were smooth transactions. Very happy with Island Watch.

    Review of Laco Friedrichshafen Type B dial 45mm

    Posted by michael oren on May 24th 2018

    Love it,pictures do not do it justice.I have 8"inch wrist. If your wrist is small consider 42mm, watch is highly visible because of the thin bezel.You don"t really need big diameter.Keeps very good time and even the strap and zippered watch wallet are of top notch quality.Smooth winding and operation of the crown stand out when you set te time.Very happy with purchase. Thanks Marc.

    Great watch and great customer service!

    This is a beautiful watch with roots in history. Very well done and thought out. Accurate to the originals. Fabulous time peace with a solid and reliable movement. I get tons of compliments on it. More than this, the customer service at Long Island Watch is fabulous. Marc, the owner, has been great to deal with. I had originally bought the 42 mm version and decided to exchange it for the larger. Things went as smooth as possible. I would not hesitate to recommend Long Island Watch and Marc. I will surely be shopping with him again. Thanks.
