Regardless of which Laco aviator watch you choose, all models have one thing in common: a legendary history. In the 1940s only a handful of companies received permission to manufacture pilot watches. One of them was Laco. The detailed requirements laid down for observation watches for the German Air Force were formulated by the Ministry of Aviation under the classification "FL 23883". This number stood for "navigation devices" and could also be seen on each watch on the opposite side of the winder Model B aviator watches made the work of early navigators easier. A characteristic of type B aviator watches is the large minute numbers in increments of 5 along the edge. The classic hour division of 1 to 12 is given in Arabic numerals, which are displayed in an additional inner ring. Military aviator watches generally had no manufacturing company logos. Quite simply, this was to prevent additional “useless” elements from affecting the readability and functionality of the watch. Besides the two classic A and B models, you can also acquire another watch type from us, which combines proven elements with additional practical components: the type C aviator watch.
