Every single Laco Flieger Heirloom is hand finished to create an aged effect: rust, dents and scratches by a special team of craftsmen. The dial and hands are also hand are also subjected to the same aging effect. The signs of aging were created with a lot of manual work and attention to detail. The cases go through hours and hours of manual work to make it right. The result is a very special watch with no two similar watches in the world. A watch that looks like it has actually been worn by the German Luftwaffe pilots during the Second World War. An artifact that is worthy of a museum exhibit.

The black Pilot style dial is designed using historical models. So this is as close to the original Laco Flieger as you can get. Blued hands is mesmerising as it catches the light at diferent angles.
The Laco Flieger 42 Type B Automatic comes with a closed brown pilot calf leather strap with rivets that are also vintage looking.
