Laco Taupe 39 Limited Edition

Last year, the Laco Augsburg Taupe and Aachen Taupe sparked enthusiasm in the world of Pilot watches. With their subtle color scheme, the two fliegers offered a refreshingly contemporary, and surprisingly elegant look for a classic pilot watch. The 42 mm limited edition pilot in B-Uhr Type A sold out before Christmas in 2019.


Laco is now launching two additional models in a limited edition in their entry-level Pilot watch series. The new models now come in a smaller 39 mm diameter. The appearance of the new Augsburg Taupe and Aachen Taupe is as impressive as their predecessors, and more appealing to watch enthusiasts with preference for mid-size watches.


With this new size, Laco is following the trend of smaller cases and responds to the request of many enthusiasts who explicitly wished a smaller case. From August 2020, 200 pieces of each of the two models will be available.

I hope to have my hands on this watch by the end of summer to write a review comparing the 42 mm with the 39 mm model.
