Laco Mini-Replica

Mini, because the case diameter has been reduced from the original 55 mm of the B-Uhr specification to 45 mm. But the Mini-Replica by Laco is still a large and impressive watch, with dark sandblasted finish and anti-fingerprint coating. The ordnance number FL 23883 is engraved on the caseband.

Differently to the orginal B-Uhr, this watch has a caseback with a sapphire window through which you can see the hand-wound Laco 04 movement. This has a bridge marked with the Laco 1925 logo. It is the ETA 2804.2, a movement with a precision of -5/+10 seconds per day, 42 hours power reserve. The movement is relatively small at 25.6 mm in diameter, and so the window in the caseback is also fairly small. The balance runs at 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hertz).
