Well we've got some freezing wind that's come thru Atlanta tonight and shut down all of my plans, Decided to pick up a 6 pack and kick it at home with the doggy.
It's the 1 week anniversary since receiving my New and First Laco in the Mail. I thought I'd share some final thoughts about the experience and the Watch! The case and watch itself, I'm personally giving a 9/10. I do love everything about the watch from finish, to dial. The only thing I wish Watch companies, I will not blame laco for this issue, is the look around the rim of the sapphire. Every Once in a while I look at see the watch case at this angle, first thing that comes to mind is how I wish it was not there! I believe what I'm trying to convey, is the magnified side view of the sapphire case, it almost looks like a white line around the crystal. Though it's only seen when looking at it in a certain angle. I'm sure most of you know what i mean.
Last Monday I ordered a Tool to punch an extra hole in the 40's style strap, giving it more room , I can't tell you guys how much better the watch wears when the strap is on properly. Prior to having the extra hole, the strap, even in a sized Normal / Large, was way to big for my wrist. The Luminescent on the dial is a 10/10. It glows all threw the night, even with minimal light exposure. Today was indoors all day, and even at nightfall I can still see the lume when I walk into a dark room. The lume stays visible just so long as you have some source of light lol, it's very pretty. The crown does not dig , and the watch sits prettier than ever on the wrist! Here are a few shots I took tonight, a couple of them I tried to compare them to other stainless steel or metal items, so you can see how the tent looks on the new finish.. In my humble opinion, the colour is nowhere near as dark as It looks online, it's much lighter in person but It still has a Gunmetal tone to it.
Next to a New Dime , I think this gives a clear indicator of the contrast.
Properly measured my wrist clocking in just at 7.35inches , though I have a rather flat surface area.
This was directly in front of my living room LED TV, the Dial is as black as the screen is when off, just beautiful. No haze or Gray.
Beautiful strap in Black from Laco 40's style
I think Everyone should own one of these, got this one for $10 shipped on Ebay from some Midest Seller.
Once the hole is there, you can use a strap changing tool to make a perfectly clean , round hole,
Against a Stainless steel oven, the watch case is only slightly darker.
Took this shot last week ( Put the strap on the wrong way, took me a day to realize it was wrong lol ) There was no charging in involved in this. Basicly from walking around the house on a cloudy day, the dial still gives off some green. The lume is very powerful.
Girlfriends dog with a new outfit! Isn't she a cutie
