German premium watch brand Laco has announced the first in a total of five exclusive annual editions that will take it to its 100th company anniversary in 2025.
Together with the other annual, similarly limited editions 96, 97, 98 and 99, it’s designed to ‘authentically illustrate the history of the traditional watchmaking factory’ and ships in a distinguished collector‘s presentation box.
True to its name, the Edition 95 is being produced as a limited series of 95 pieces only. It’s the latest in a number special edition watch releases aimed at enthusiasts.
Laco has specialised in the production of precise navy watches since the 1940s, designed to meet the demands on the high seas. With this new, contemporary edition, Laco has sought to combine characteristic maritime charisma with the brand’s typical precision and functionality.

The Edition 95 is water resistant to 100 meters, has a laterally knurled stainless steel case with a diameter of 42.5 millimeters and a large, dark blue dial with distinctive fine grain.
For intuitive readability, the Arabic numerals and hands are coated with intense blue luminescent Superluminova. This allows the time to be seen in an instant, even at night or in poor visibility conditions. The mechanical hand-wound movement, reflecting its antecedents, is based on the tried and tested caliber ETA 6498.1.
The Edition 95 may have been designed for use on the high seas, but we’re sure its sporty nature will have wider appeal, as eye-catching when relaxing or partnered with business attire.
The watch is presented with a colour-coordinated watch box, and comes with a certificate of authenticity and limited edition pin. This limited edition sell for 1.290€ direct from Laco and authorised retailers.
