  • With the outbreak of World War 2 the Reichsluftfahrtministerium ( Reichs Air Ministry) recognized the need for an efficient observer watch (Beobachtungsuhr) to be used by the aircraft navigator, assisting crews of long range bombing missions. Observer Watches were also worn by the Pilots who needed wrist watches that could be accurately and instantly read when both hands were used to pilot the aircraft. This design was given given the Reichsluftfahrtministerium classification number FL 23883. This number appeared on all Luftwaffe Watches of this design. Printed on the inside of the case is the type, device and movement number, stock number and the producers name
  • The Laco is sold together with an original compass which would have been worn by the pilot on his other arm

Having been a customer some years ago, I recommended you to my friend when he decided to sell a Rolex from his collection just before Christmas. As expected, the service he received was exemplary and so I didn’t hesitate to come back to you to when selling my own Rolex this week. Once again, the transaction was smooth, the price was very fair and payment was immediate. The only reason I didn’t buy another Rolex on the spot from John (who is a pleasure to deal with by the way) was because I can’t decide what to go for next. When I’ve made up my mind, I’ll be back to buy - I can recommend you without hesitation.
