    Re: LACO identification

    Imho your 20 mic gold-plated Laco dates back to the mid 1940s, the 9 jewels movement Laco 581 is almost identicial to the Durowe 275/Laco 550 which was produced from 1940 to 1958. Comparing to similar watches posted on Uhrforum.de the watch looks ok to me.
    Kind regards

    Unfortunately we don't have any specifications left for this watch or this kind of movement.
    But we think Mike is vwery close with his assessment and the watch might be from the mid 1950's...

    So, how many jewels does it have ? 9, 15, 17 ?
    On Uhrforum.de you‘ll find an identical watch with a 9 jewels 581. if I say „almost“ I mean „almost“.

    Ok..thanks for your answer....I thought this watch is older like 30-ies or 40-ies...Do you think the numbers are reilluminated? It's looke that way to me,I'm not sure is this dial completely original...

    I really don't know..I was trying to find same model all over internet and I couldn't find.Because,this movement doesn't have jewels like today onse (The red one)on the front as you see...I am not sure how to say but they are metal ones(I see 3 of them) It is very similar movement like the one you showed me but the jewels are metal one...Do you know how long time they could last? Because obviously I won't be able to find them anywhere anymore.
