    I just received my Laco 1925 and am delighted with it. For anyone who may be considering any vintage style pilot's watch should consider this watch. My watch has the Miyota Automatic movement.
    Greenish white hour/minutes and sweep seconds + Arabic numerals at 5 minute intervals + elegant Laco brand script and 1925 model # with the contrasting black dial face works beautifully as a modern homage to the big pilot's watches of old. For those who might want an even more minimalist dial, I think the model is also available from Laco without the brand script and 1925 model # names. The case is stainless is brushed and looks lovely with this dial. The watch comes with a long leather strap. The diameter of the watch for me is fine and is light enough to be worn daily.
    The watch comes with a very nice leatherette watch box.
    All in all a most splendid watch, from a historical relevant watch maker (for pilot's watches).
    Excellent value for money. Well chuffed.

    Laco Type A Dial Miyota Automatic Pilot Watch 861688
    .
    .

    Price ($289 free s/h and tax free, with a 2-year warranty) is not bad at all for a German made pilot watch!

    Pictures shown in Amazon do not do justice as to how awesome looking this watch is and its quality.

    Now, a single caveat is in order: one picture of the watch has the words "Made in Germany." This is misleading for me, not paying much attention to other pix, which do NOT show "Made in Germany." To be fair, the seller, longislandwatch (point of contact: Mark), does not have those words in its website. However, this is not to say that it is not made in Germany. According to the seller, this watch is made--at least *assembled*--in Germany (of course quality assurance is involved in that process).

    BTW, Mark from longislandwatch took his time in answering all my questions, including how the watch is made and how the warranty works.

    The more I look at my Laco, the more I fall in love with it. Love a number of its salient features, including simplicity (no day/date to adjust) and super-luminosity (stays bright through most of the night).

    Now, I'm thinking about getting another Laco pilot watch: the Laco Type B Dial Miyota Automatic Pilot Watch 861690.

    This is an excellent timepiece; the build quality is amazing and the vintage look is great. The movement is very accurate, and the self winding works wonders. My wrists are a little small, so I did have to punch one extra hole in the band to make it fit, and boy does it fit well!!

    A great watch representing value for money. For your money you get a watch that has a bit of history (They were one of several watch companies that made watches for ther German air force in WW2) So you are getting a pilots watch from a company that has a genuine history of supplying watches to pilots. The watch is Citizen Miyota movements. Miyota are the main competitors to the Swiss ETA. There is some disagreement regarding Miyota being of equal quality the main issue is with the ETA when you pull out the crown to set the time the second hand stops, with the Miyota it keeps going which can be a little hard to get used to. Miyota and Citizen are a respected company though so you can buy this with confidence. Buying Miyota also means you are paying about 300 pounds less than you would for an ETA movement watch.

    The dial is 42 mm which is an average size bigger than your dress watch (36-38mm) And is about the size of an average divers watch (Pilots watches are generally bigger going up to 44 or 46mm) What makes this watch look big is because how thick it is. It is a pilots watch and so not designed to tuck under your shirt. The lume on this is bright and its a very sterile watch. The watch comes in a big case and presentation box. The case looks pretty solid and I dont expect any problems from it. Watch comes on a thick brown leather strap.

    All in all exactly what you would want/expect from a pilots watch

    I am thoroughly pleased with this Laco watch. The craftsmanship on my specimen is superb and it has that old world styling that gives it a certain panache. Accuracy seems to be good and the dial is very easy to read, even for these old tired eyes! The leather band is perfect and the night illumination is great and lasts for hours. I highly recommend this watch!

    Excellent watch, it is my first automatic watch. I love how the back shows some of the internals. Fit and finish is very good, I can't find a flaw on the piece.
