The LACO Sydney 861890 is a modern classic German made 42mm automatic pilot watch

In 1940, the German Reichsluftfahrtministerium (Imperial Air Ministry) created a specification for a Flieger watch ('Flieger' is German for 'Pilot') for it's pilots to use for timing and navigation during flights. Also known as "Beobachtungsuhren" or "B-Uhren" (observation watches) these classic aviator watches were produced by only 5 brands - IWC, Stowa, Wempe, Laco and Lange & Söhne

Two dial types were defined - Baumuster A and Baumuster B. The LACO Sydney 861890 is a modern interpretation of the Baumuster B design, that was produced from 1940 to January 1941:

  • Large size dial
  • Arabic numerals 5 to 55 on outer dial
  • Arrow index at the 12 o'clock position
  • Arabic numerals 1 to 12 on inner dial

The LACO Sydney 861890 has a 42mm diameter (excluding crown) and 13mm thick 316L stainless steel case, with an IP black finish and domed crown. The movement is a LACO 21 3-hand automatic with 21 jewels and 40 hour power reserve and 21,600 oscillations/hour, that can be admired through the exhibition display case back.

The beautifully clear black Type-B dial has crisp green Arabic numerals and index, indicating minutes around the outer index and hours on the inner index. Hands, index and numerals are treated with long-lasting non-radioactive C3 Superluminova lume, making the watch highly usable at night time

Water resistance is 5 ATM / 50 metres / 165 feet

The high-quality solid-link 20mm stainless steel bracelet has an IP black finish, with curved folding pushbutton buckle which is nicely engraved with "Laco / 1925"

The LACO Sydney 861890 is a high-quality German made automatic pilot's watch built to a classic German Type-B dial design, and represents outstanding value for money and German quality. The watch comes with a user manual and 24 month warranty in a high-quality black presentation box, in a sturdy white outer box
