Covid-19 Shipping Delay Notice

The ongoing pandemic has caused worldwide delays in shipping. These delays have affected the entire retail industry, particularly disrupting supply chains for retailers. Granbergs Watches has not been spared from these disruptions, and as a result, we are experiencing significant delays in order fulfilment.

Our team is doing our best to accurately project the timelines for all orders, but the unpredictability in the global supply chain means that there is always a risk of orders being delayed beyond our estimations. To ensure that you receive your order in a timely fashion, we recommend that you place your order at least 4 to 6 weeks before you anticipate needing your product.

We understand that it is not always possible to anticipate your product needs over such a long window but, when possible, doing so will dramatically increase the chances that you will not experience any additional delays in receiving your product.

Granbergs Watches is committed to providing high-quality products to the community, and we are working tirelessly to resolve these uncertainties as we begin to transition to a new normal after COVID-19.

We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time, and we will be happy to follow up with you regarding any questions or concerns you have related to existing or future orders.

From everyone at Granbergs: stay safe!

The Laco Pilot Watches Original are authentic reconstructions of the observation watches from the 1940s. They are also called B-Uhr, from the German word Beobachtungsuhren. At that time, only a handful of companies received permission to build these pilot watches according to the detailed requirements of the Reichsluftfahrtministerium (RLM) (former German ministry for aviation). With a stately diameter of 55 mm back then, the watches were used as well as navigation instruments. The five manufacturers (IWC, Laco, Lange & Söhne, Stowa and Wempe) thus created a horological classic that has become the inspiration for many wristwatches. With its Pilot Watches Original, Laco presents the most authentic reconstructions of these type of watches on the market.

In addition to the Replica 55 with the original diameter, contemporary case sizes of 39, 42 and 45 mm are also offered. All components are proportionally adapted to the respective size - always based on the historical construction plans.

Other characteristics that the current models share with the historical models:

• Iconic dial without logo, which would have been only a distracting element at that time
• Dials in the style of type A (also Called “Baumuster A” with 11 Arabic numerals, triangle with two dots instead of 12) or type B (“Baumuster B” with inner hour circle, outer minute track)
• Case shape with straight lugs and grey, matt surface to avoid reflections in the cockpit
• Optimal readability both by day and by night. In the past a radioactive material was used, today, only the harmless luminous material Superluminova is used
• Distinctive and easy to grip crown, to make it possible to use the watch even with gloves
• "FL 23883" engraving on the side of the case which represents a former classification number and not a serial number, as well as a bottom marking with unit number, manufacturer and movement designation. At the historical models this engraving can be found inside the caseback, nowadays this engraving is shown externally
• Rivets on the leather strap, which used to secure the strap to the fixed bars in the past. Thanks to the usage of spring bars, they only have a decorative purpose today

With the Pilot Watches Original, Laco has managed to bring the look and feel of the historically famous pilot and observation watches to the wrist. The current models vary in diameter, type of movement and dial type. To get an overview of the different models, we recommend to take a look at our Model matrix.
