Laco München Erbstück Limited Edition

Since the end of last year, the special edition model “München” from the German watch manufacturer Laco has been delighting numerous collectors and watch lovers around the globe. From November, the pilot chronograph will now also be presented as an exclusive limited edition of only 30 pieces in the Laco “Erbstück” (means: heirloom) look.

But what makes the limited edition of 30 pieces so special is its deceptively real look of a vintage timepiece with small scratches, discoloration and signs of wear and tear.

The design is once again inspired by the long history of the company, known for manufacturing the famous pilot and observation watches in the 1940s. While the look is faithful to the legendary models, the technology and features are up to date. Thanks to a special manual surface treatment specially developed and perfected by Laco, this model brings authentic vintage flair to the wrist. This special aging process makes each of the only 30 pieces unique. From the case to the dial with hands to the leather strap – all components are aged by hand with great attention to detail.

Laco München Erbstück Limited Edition

The black instrument-look dial displays the day of the week and the date at 3 o‘clock, in addition to the totalizers for the stop and add time measurements. However, thanks to the discreetly kept totalizers and the thermally blued, as well as Superluminova covered hands, the appearance of a classic pilot‘s watch is maintained. Inside the Laco München Erbstück beats the chronograph caliber Laco 50 with automatic winding, which is based on the proven Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750. The exceptional stainless steel case with a diameter of 42 mm undoubtedly leaves a lasting impression on the viewer with its extravagant patina.

On the closed back is the engraving of the historical observation watches, and additionally the marking with the limited edition number. The high-quality, closed leather strap with rivets in pilot style also goes back to the roots of the big pilot watches. The watch set is completed by a noble outer packaging, as well as a certificate of authenticity.

Each of the only 30 pieces combines earlier days of aviation with the discreet technical flair of modern chronographs. This gives each model a special charm and the charisma of a historic timepiece. Each München Erbstück is an absolutely unique piece.

The new model is available at a price of 2,990 €.
