German watch manufacturer Laco presents Edition 96, a masculine, durable and solid timepiece with a cool deep black shade. There are only 96 copies of this limited edition available and it is based on the successful Scorpion series of the company.
Within the scope of Mission 2025, a campaign working up to the company‘s 100-year anniversary, it presents the history of the traditional watchmaker as the second of altogether five „count-up“ models. With the Edition 96, a refined timepiece was created that completely satisfies the high demands and requirements in the outdoor sector and leaves behind both a stylish and fashionable impression thanks to the timeless design and technical properties.
Compared to the Laco sports and squad watches that emphasize their sporty look with fresh green, blue or orange, the Edition 96 is elegant and confident in its design without color accents while not completely denying its origin.
Just like the other models in the series, the bottom of the Edition 96 is also decorated with a relief in the form of a scorpion.
The black stainless steel case with a 42 mm diameter also convinced with its durability. Thanks to the screwed crown and bolted bottom, the Edition 96 is ready forlong dives as it is waterproof up to 30 ATM. The leather strap with a linen structure impression is also waterproof through a patented coating.
The unidirectional serrated ceramic bezel, also gives the watch a powerful impression. The dial is particularly attractive through the contrast between the minimalistic indexes in discreet gray and the powerful numbers in pure white. The minute and hour hands correspond in the same color scheme. The hands and indexes on the dial and bezel are coated in Superluminova C1 and reflect the color differences of the elements with their nuances.
Under the black shell, the Laco 200 caliber ticks (basic model: Sellita SW 200-1) and never lets down its user thanks to the automatic winding. This can be changed from the installed Elaboré quality level to Top for a fee, which convinces mechanical watch connoisseurs through higher precision.
Each of the 96 pieces will be delivered in an elegant travel pouch with a high-quality collector‘s pin and a certificate of authenticity and inspection.
Starting on December 7, 2021, the watch can be ordered at a price of 1,290 € during the pre-sale. It will then be delivered in the middle of January. For those who decide to purchase the watch until the end of the year, Laco offers a practical multi-tool from Leatherman valued at 99 € as an extra bonus.
