Topper Fine Jewelers just launched a limited edition of a Laco Flieger based on the ETA 6498 models (Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven) but with a completely different dial.
The eye catcher is a crisp white lacquer dial which is contrasted by heat-blued hands and hour markers – a configuration not previously available from Laco.
The Topper Edition indeed features lovely blue indexes. To maximize the blue on the dial The applied steel hour markers are temperature blued, heated though.
This results in a perfect match of hands and hour markers, which - depending on the light - appear black or matte blue.
