Ready for new adventures: Laco is expanding its Scorpion product family of squad and sport watches with attractive model variants with a reduced case diameter of 39 millimetres. Thanks to the new midsize format, the watches can now be worn perfectly by sporty adventurers and lovers of versatile, changing looks with narrower wrists.
With these watches, which will be available in a total of four colours with different strap variants, Laco is responding to the request frequently expressed by customers for a smaller size, in addition to the existing 42 mm models. In addition, the new timepieces adopt the sporty look, technical details, as well as the names of the already known Laco “Scorpions”: Himalaya, Mojave, Amazonas and Atlantik.
Robust & agile – always a strong appearance
The new models are again dedicated to the scorpion, whose relief adorns the caseback. Like the nocturnal animal, they are robust, adaptable and luminous despite their small size. Even off the beaten track, they convince as true “explorer watches” with their taker qualities.
When it comes to robustness and functionality, Laco leaves nothing to chance. The black dial with Arabic numerals in white provides the best contrasts. The differentiation and dynamics are given to the timepieces via their eye-catching colour accents.
Both the unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel, as well as the indexes and the minute hand are covered with the luminous material Superluminova in white, green, blue or orange. The long-lasting afterglow effect ensures best readability even at dusk or in the dark.
New size – proven quality
In combination with the screw-down caseback, the double-domed and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, as well as the screw-down crown, the robust case withstands a pressure of 30 ATM. Underneath the striking caseback relief ticks the automatic movement “Laco 200″, which is based on the reliable Swiss calibre Sellita SW200.
For use in and around water, Laco offers robust rubber straps and metal bracelets that provide maximum wearing comfort and can give the watches a completely new look. But the character remains: sporty, dynamic, versatile!
The new models will be available from October directly from Laco and authorized retailers at a price of €930 (with rubber strap) or €980 (with metal bracelet).

Passion and tradition
The German watch brand Laco, based in the black forest town Pforzheim, has a corporate history that stretches back to 1925. The „Golden City“ has been the location for this small but long-established manufacturer from the very beginning. This traditional company earned its fame by constructing the legendary 55 mm sized observation watch, as one of only five licensed companies in the 1940s. Around twenty years later, with more than 1200 employees, Laco was counted as one of Germany‘s largest watch manufacturers. Today, the small team places emphasis again on handcraft. It is quality that counts in production, not quantity. The products range from pilot and navy watches, through to elegant chronographs and the purist Classic Line. But all Laco models have one thing in common: the highest quality, outstanding design and functionality in use. In addition to their own online shop, Laco also offers for sale at the factory in Pforzheim. From Monday to Friday, this offers an opportunity to pick up a new watch directly from where experienced watchmakers have manufactured it intricately by hand.
