Up For Sale is my Laco Aachen Type B navigator style watch.
Harking from the era of WW2 fleiger's
with navigation-centric minutes prominent on the dial and hours on an inner ring its a different look.
It is a stylish classic in a brushed stainless steel case and thick soft riveted brown calf leather strap.
The black dial and hands feature luminous markers and numerals for all indices and numbers, making it relatively easy to plot those vital course changes in dim cockpit lighting.
Its one of around 60, so has not seen a lot of wear, however I have managed to get a small scuff on the bezel and case at around the 2 o'clock position which you can see in the zoom shot of the crown side.
Its fairly hard to see and I only noticed it when I was taking the photos and gave it a clean up. The leather strap is also creased around the area that fits my size. Both crystals are blemish free.
This is a classic aviation tool watch from a German maker with an interesting heritage.
Bought new from a dealer, it includes the manual, zipped case and out card, hang tag and plastic dial protector.
I'm asking $225 USD wIth postage at actual cost additional, shipped F.O.B. worldwide.
