Laco Augsburg Oliv 39 & Aachen Oliv 39

German watch brand Laco has released two new pilot watches in a trendy military look. The two limited editions “Augsburg Oliv 39” and “Aachen Oliv 39” are each limited to 250 pieces and present the classic typography of the famous observation watches with their dials in a refined shade. The authentic vintage charm is underlined by the bronze-colored case and the retro-look strap.

With the two new watches, each limited to 250 pieces, Laco is following up on the success of the “Oliv 42” models launched last year, which sold out in a very short time. By reducing the case size by 3 mm to 39 mm, the watches have a much slimmer appearance and can also be worn on narrower wrists.

The stainless steel case is covered with a bronze-colored PVD coating, which emphasizes the “used look” character. The warm hue harmonizes expressively with the olive green dial. Inspired by military units and special commandos, the natural tone provides a fitting background for the strikingly matter-of-fact typography.

The numerals, indexes and hands are coated with the luminous Superluminova “Old Radium”, which has a brownish vintage tone during the day, but glows intensely green in the dark.

Precise drive is provided by the high-quality automatic movement Laco 21, which can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. It is based on the proven Miyota 821A caliber and offers a power reserve of 42 hours, as well as a stop-second function, which allows precise setting of the time.

Optionally, Laco also offers the option of upgrading to the Laco 31 caliber. This upgrade offers an increased power reserve of over 60 hours, as well as thermally blued screws as an additional visual highlight.

The distinctive “field watch” look is complemented by rugged vintage-look leather straps. As a tribute to the history of the pilot watch, they are equipped with decorative rivets, which, like the buckle, once again pick up the color tone of the case.

The “Augsburg Oliv 39” and the “Aachen Oliv 39” are available directly from Laco and from selected retailers at a recommended retail price of 440 Euros each.
