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.

Laco Aachen (with Miyota 821A) April 29, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Australia  
It’s a great looking watch, I‘m very pleased with it thus far and I‘m very glad I bought it. It looks especially great on a black NATO strap.

My individual watch runs a fairly consistent-8 seconds a day. The seconds hand has a little stutter when moving the watch abruptly, however this is a non-issue and perfectly normal for this Miyota 821A.

While the rotor can be heard under certain circumstances I certainly wouldn‘t call it loud by any stretch of the imagination, nor would I call it a problem.

The Lume could be a little better but I have no issue reading the time at 5am.

The sapphire crystal and dial are great.

Overall, it seems to be a great watch that I like very much.

Purchasing from Long Island Watch was fast and pleasant.

Seller Fine. Watch meh. February 6, 2018
Reviewer: DavB13 from Fort Lauderdale, FL United States  
Glorious box, now clutter.  Too thick leather band would have been fine if it was far longer & had to go over a jacket sleeve.  If the quartz version had not had the day of week at 12 position I would have gotten it.  I will be buying a spring bar tool &  NATO or other light band.  I frequently leave the watch off too long & it stops.
