This being my first "real" watch I'm very impressed. I have a more wide 6 3/4" wrist and I think it's a perfect fit, except for the strap. It's loose brand new, and will only get worse as it's worn. I'm on the last notch. Can anyone confirm that this is the standard strap, or the "fat American" strap? I was thinking of getting a NATO strap to try out. Forgot to mention this is the 42mm version.
Just a heads up that only the brown strap is included, and the "Made in Germany" engraving on the back is not present. I seem to recall a thread somewhere mentioning Laco heeding some feedback about requests to remove the engraving. No idea why. I'm a little dissapointed it's not there. German engineering and craftsmanship is well known around the world!
I ordered mine off Amazon from a store called Long Island Watches. Received in a few days with no issues. They list the watch as only having 1 left in stock. However within a day of ordering they went from zero stock, back to 1 in stock. Clever guys...
Anyway, the thing is gorgeous. But I do plan on actually wearing it. Is there any sort of treatment for the mineral glass to help ward off scratching? How does the mineral stand up to long sleeve cotton/nylon/polyester? It's winter here so the face will definitely rub up against these materials.
