I've been looking to get a Laco Pilot 45 Type B since selling my 42mm Miyota last December. So, when I heard about the special Laco project, I jumped in. I thought people would want a flieger that is close to the original. I don't think another pilot watch would be seriously lame, because there are way too many pilot watches out there trying to be original that having a historically accurate flieger would make us stand out from the crowd.
Anyway, I'm truly interested in the discussion though. However, if we try to design a new watch, it will get messy.
