    LACO - New addition from the '40s (many pics)

    Laco is probably best known for its pilot watches, but also produced some other valuable watches. This is an example.
    All stainless steel with a pink gold capped bezel.




    Inged case




    The dial in excdellent condition




    Sides and back






    The movement is the caliber Laco 550 (Durowe)




    Two more pics






    On my wrist finally





    Here in company with its "cousin"

    Rare thing for these totally non-proof-non-gasket cases to survive a dial condition like that :)
    Chaos is my focus

    Yes and also the case looks unpolished. Maybe it remained for many years in a drawer.
