Luxury watchmaker Laco debuts limited edition painstakingly aged heirloom chronograph

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.

Based in the black forest town Pforzheim, the German watch maker has a storied history that dates back to 1925. It’s known for manufacturing pilot and observation watches in the 1940s, and this new model plays on that heritage, combining vintage flair with modern technology.

The black instrument-look dial displays the day of the week, and the date at 3 o’clock, in addition to the totalizers for the stop and add time measurements.
