This version of the Heidelberg is part of Laco's unique Erbstück collection. Each Erbstück is artificially aged by hand to achieve a stunning vintage look that completely transforms the watch. Laco age each component individually in a painstaking and labour-intensive process, the end result of which is a watch that looks as though it's decades old. Each piece is completely unique, so you get the charm of a vintage watch combined with the quality of a modern timepiece!

Please note that as each watch is unique, it will differ from the one shown in the pictures.

The Heidelberg is perfect for anyone after a pilot’s watch with a flawless execution. The modest 39mm steel case has a sandblasted finish that sets the tone for the functional minimalist design of the watch.

Despite the artificial aging, the printed numerals are still very legible against the matte black dial. The same goes for the hands, which are thermally blued and which really stand out given the faux patina on the watch. Both the markers and hands are applied with Super-LumiNova C3, for exceptional readability in the dark.

This beautiful dial is protected by domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. And powering the watch is the ever-reliable ETA 2824-2. The 25-jewel automatic movement is a staple of watch brands everywhere, as it’s both robust and accurate.

Why This Watch?

To be honest, what don’t we love?

  • With a width of 39mm and a thickness of just over 12mm, the Heidelberg’s sizing will be perfect for many.
  • The specifications are exactly what you’d want for a pilot’s watch at this price point.
  • The thermally blued hands are incredibly striking.
