    The ordinal WW11 watches were a massive 55mm in diameter and had Aluminium cases so they weren't too heavy.

      More interesting info. Would love to get my hands on one of those just to see it.

      They are also rare because they were only issued to aircrews before each mission and had to be returned to the stores on return, so the ones that are still around are probably from flyers who were probably taken prisoner or killed in action.

      That's interesting to know. Probably not many survived because of that though, at least not in good condition.

      I don't think they make this model anymore, so you'd have to look used.

    I've been searching all over the internet for this model, could you please post a link as to where I can purchase it.

    thanks.I've changed my mind. I To cancel the stowa. and get Reloj Laco Pilot A 861746 Memmingen .mabe loca better.

  • chun hung hardy mung

    what you people are looking at is an old model type-A B-watch. I have one type-B B-watch with Eta 2824-2 movement. And one type-A B-watch with Eta 2824-2 Geneva Strip movement. Unworn, never used, and want to sell them. They are limited production and discontinued models.

  • breitlingsource

    Stowa does have long waits, but they make some great watches!

  • W sam

    hello i really like your watch. I have already ordered Stowa flieger, but have to wait three months can get it.

    Hello, I visited Laco official website and couldn't find the strap that showed on your video. Can you tell me where can I get it? Thanks

    Oh my!. Then sure, you only buy what you like, stupid me! You, sir, are a man of heart after all. Congrats :)

  • breitlingsource
    breitlingsource 5 years ago

    LOL You really have a good sense of humour.. you think I get these for free? I wish... I buy all these watches my self with my own money made from my own blood, sweat and tears and shoot these videos in my own spare time. I only buy watches that I like and enjoy, and most of them meet my expectations so my reviews are generally good.

  • fastcougar3200
    fastcougar3200 5 years ago

    That makes sense, Stowa is a local competitor and almost in the same price tag range, altough Stowa makes smaller fliegers (40 and 41mm) but yet more stylish.
    BTW, do you always make positive reviews in return of receiving and wearing all these watches? Lol

  • fastcougar3200
    fastcougar3200 5 years ago

    IWC for sure. Always forgotten.

  • breitlingsource
    breitlingsource 5 years ago

    We've had this discussion before.. and there does appear to be 5. Laco's materials stated 4, but they apparently intentionally skipped one. Can't remember which one it is now.

  • fastcougar3200
    fastcougar3200 5 years ago

    I belive there were 5 companies making flieger watches, not 4.

    I just bought this watch and love it. But I like the strap shown in this video better. I looked on the Laco website and cant find it. Where did you get it? Or do you know where I can find it? Thanks

    Will you pls tell me the model number of this watch, I can`t find the Laco with the preview back. I have looked at Islandwatch, The watchmann and TimeQuest.

    I wonder- when Hayek visited Swatch group production facilities, did he feel like Charlie in the chocolate factory (minus the oompa loompas)? Btw, thanks for this review- I just ordered the Miyota movement pilot b from Laco's site. It's no ETA, but it's probably 80% of the watch for 40% of the price. I apologize for the excessive use of percentages.

  • Stegmutt

    @breitlingsource Dear Breitlingsource, I feel pity for your watches wasting away in the dark! If I had your collection I'd wear 6 watches on each arm (and maybe leg). May I request a review? Any Seiko spring drive (oh moon phase, how I dream of you). Those may be a bit too modern for you, so failing that, how about Jaeger Lecoultre (reverso, I hope, altho it's probably too dressy for you)?

  • Stegmutt
    Stegmutt 6 years ago

    Dear Bretilingsource, please let me know next time you leave on vacation- I'd like to, umm, 'visit' your watch collection while you're gone.

    thanks for the Video.
    i love the Lugs and the Crown too. quite a Unique Design. makes LACO Different from any other Pilot Watches...
    but i'm a huge fan of IWC and Steinhart mainly because they are Larger. 46,2 for IWC and 48 mm STEINHART

    @wenjilu

    yes they were it's allover the net

    "The five companies that were assigned to build the watches were A.Lange & Sohne, International Watch Company, Laco, Stowa and Wempe."

    @DonQuixote1604 It is such a timeless look, B&R is my second favorite company, next to audemars piguet that is ;)

  • RandallJonesey
    RandallJonesey 7 years ago

    Interesting; thanks!

    It should have been the original FIVE though! Stowa is the fifth.

    All these brands still stands; think it's much because of the "Fliegers" when it comes to Laco and Stowa. Wempe is basically about jewelry. I believe their major roll in the WW II was doing assembly work for Laco as Laco itself didn't have the time for it.

    well, I personally like B&R more for pilot watches, but that look is still very un beatable

    Wempe is pronounced "Vempe"; the final e isn't silent.
