At the “Munichtime” watch exhibition this year, Laco presents a chronograph with tachymeter bezel for the first time. The new model „Hockenheim” is based on the already available „Monte Carlo” and takes over its design features to a large extent.
With this sporty and elegant timepiece, Laco deviates from its history in the field of pilot watches. The model shown is perfect for leisure racers, who can use the tachymeter on the bezel to determine their average speed.
In order not to entirely neglect the flight history of the house, the 12 on the dial was replaced by a small triangle, which reminds the Laco classics. The indexes, numerals and hands are covered with Superluminova C3 luminosity, so that readability is easily possible even in the twilight or in the dark. The extra portion of sportiness is ensured by red accents on the totalizers and the second hand. As with all Laco models, functionality and optimum readability are of top priority.
The 42 mm diameter stainless steel case with its polished and satined surfaces is elegant and cool at the same time and harmonizes perfectly with the black dial. A secure hold of the watch on the wrist is guaranteed by a black calfskin strap with folding clasp.
Sapphire coated and anti-reflective glass is embedded to protect this high-quality watch. The bottom of the case is screwed to provide a water tightness of 10 ATM. This watch is not only the perfect companion for the racetrack, but also makes a good figure on special occasions.
The sporty chronograph will be available starting from November 2017 for EUR 1.990 directly at Laco or at the official Laco dealers.
