    arnold schwarzenegger with Laco Pilot on cover of new Men's fitness

    Hi,

    This is my first post. Happened to see Arnold Schwarzenegger wearing a Laco pilot on the cover of the new men's fitness. 45 mm?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum. I recall reading from somewhere that he can easily wear those big Panerai's -- there's one at 60mm IIRC. With his build, I won't be surprised if he was wearing a 55mm Laco. Cheers

    Nice spotting! I'll look for that particular issue on the magazine racks. It sure looks like a Laco 55 mm B-Uhr on his wrist; those lugs are unmistakable. I've seen images of him wearing an IWC Big Pilot in the past, so I'd love to hear the back story of how he ended up with a Laco.

    No doubt it's a 55mm and only Laco makes it in that size!!!

    Thank you for your kind welcome! After looking at the photo again, the watch is indeed a 55 mm which is quite different from the 45 mm. His arm is truly massive if he can make a 55 mm watch look normal sized. Now I wonder if it is a vintage B uhr or modern?

    I'd be surprised if it was an original. He does really like oversized watches, so I can see how he ended up with a Laco, but I don't know that his horological interest reaches toward vintage timepieces. Here's another photo of him with what might also be a Laco - but it's hard to tell. If it is a Laco 55 mm then what's interesting about it is the strap. Dual rivets as you would expect, but not a Laco original style strap.

    Pretty cool! Arnold can rock that 55mm, no problem!

    The colour of the lume material indicates it is a new Laco.

    I wonder which watch he is wearing on the set of the latest movie he is in?
