Of course LACO is always open for further development. Since robustness, simple design and quality are always standing on the centre stage, it is not surprising that the technical watches were born.
The high demands of police and military and their requirements in outdoor areas have a watch collection created, which can meet all needs. The requirements made to LACO were implemented without compromise.
That both top models have an anti-magnetic core and are waterproof up to 1000 meters is a as matter of course.
A special feature of these watches are the different colored hour and minute hands, which simplify the readability and give the watch a distinctive face.
