  • Plexi Glass
  • Brass Case with Heavy Nickel Plating
  • Brown Leather Strap

  • 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

Just like to say thanks to John, Tim and Dee for today. My pride and joy in my watch collection are my 2012 stainless Daytona and 2014 SD4K but I felt it was time to upgrade my daily wearer which was a Tag Heuer Link Chrono Automatic. Found a lovely 2017 Carrera Calibre 16 Fangio Edition on their site. At first all my communication was with Tim who was very patient with me and all my emails. He offered me £700 for my Link in part ex for the Carrera, which I deliberated over for a day or so but thought this was a good offer on a watch that I’ve had 10 years and worn almost every day. We agreed the deal via email and I drove from Bristol to Chiswick today. I have never bought from a used watch dealer so was a bit apprehensive. When I got there I was greeted by Dee who took me in to meet John. The service I got was brilliant, really nice people and it doesn’t matter if your spending £1000 or £50,000 they make you feel your custom is equally valued. When John bought the Carrera out I was blown away by the condition, you could have put it in goldsmiths window as brand new!!! Ok, I traded in my old watch but I feel like I’ve only paid £1600 for a watch that was £3250 two years ago, an absolute bargain. I will definitely deal with these guys again, fantastic service Thanks again guys Colin Colin Smith Bristol
