Hello all - thought I would put up a few pictures of my new Laco Bremerhaven. This is a departure from my usual purchasing of Laco Fliegers. I have always wanted a Navy watch, but was not 100% convinced about Laco's Navy watches until they, in my opinion, hit an ace with this watch and its companion the Cuxhaven. Other than being attracted to the idea of a Navy watch, Id watched a really interesting You Tube video by a chap called Bill Sanders (Watch ArtSci) who apart from musing about his very expensive German watch collection, talked about the idea of purchasing a watch based first and foremost on the movement rather than the brand. To illustrate his point he talked about the ETA 6498.1 and I was taken aback by the variety of watches that this movement can be found in, ranging from the distinctly affordable to the painfully expensive. Anyway, for me his watch and its sibling succeeds on both counts: it has a wonderful movement set within a lovely design that marries up modern with tradition. The quality of the workmanship is first rate. I have a number of hand winding watches, but this has a very different feel. It has the sensation similar to winding up a fully blown clock! I thought long and hard about which watch to go for, the white Cuxhaven or the black Bremerhaven. In the end personal taste took me to the black faced Bremerhaven. I was confused for a bit when making the decision which watch to go for. Firstly, a few on-line reviews described the Cuxhaven as having an enamel dial. I suspect this is incorrect (but please correct me if I am wrong). The Laco web site refers to "enamel optik", which I think probably translates to 'enamel look'. Secondly, I cannot work out why only the Cuxhaven has blued hands (I have to admit to feeling a little cheated by the omission of this on the black faced Bremerhaven). If anyone could, for interests sake, shed any light on this I would be very interested. In the end I plumped for the Bremerhaven and would certainly recommend it. The only thing I changed was the strap, replacing the Laco strap with a blue Herzog Vintage Passion strap - I have three colour variants of this strap and thoroughly recommend them.
