    Laco Flieger Limited Topper Edition (100 pieces)

    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.

    I was this >< close to buying a Cuxhaven, but his Limited Edition flieger makes me seriously consider going with it instead. I have been looking for a white dial watch for some time and this one is really quite compelling. Thanks for letting us know about this one, Mike.

    I was there at the release event, and was with around 4-5 people that have already put down deposits (the event was much bigger than just the people right around me though). They're only doing 100, so there isn't much time if you're interested.

    The watch seems to be based on the ULM line offered by Laco for $1190.00. I understand the nature of pricing a limited release model higher than a standard edition. And I'm not going to suggest that the $700.00 premium is asking too much. I'm curious to hear what a more knowledgeable enthusiast thinks of the pricing though.

    My initial thought is I'm very much interested in the watch. I've long wanted a sporty white-dialed watch on leather strap, but haven't found one that really sings to me. This dial definitely does. The blued hands and indices seem to be the biggest differentiator from the original. Must be a costly process. The movement is nicely decorated, but does not appear to be different from the standard model.

    42mm comes close to hitting the sizing sweet spot for me, but is in sync with the sizing of other larger fieiger-style watches.

    Well done, once again, Topper! One could have a pretty fantastic collection of only their special editions, which I believe are up to eight.
