German watchmaker Laco has unveiled the latest timepiece in its ‘erbstück’ heirloom series. The new retro-style München Erbstück is limited to just 30 pieces, and has been painstakingly aged for an authentic vintage look.
Straight from the box, it sports small scratches, discoloration and signs of wear and tear.
It’s this special aging process makes each of the only 30 pieces unique. From the case to the dial with hands to the leather strap, all components are aged by hand, creating an individual patina with the authentic appearance of times gone by.
