Laco is showing off some of the flexibility of their flieger watches with a pair of summer ready limited editions that pair white California dials with blued hands and dial marking. The two watches are the Napa, and the Santa Ynez, and they offer a new interpretation of the brand’s timeless pilot watch stylings in a way that says “sure, the pilot stuff is cool, but maybe take a load off every now and then”. They are a welcome admission of the true use cases for the vast majority of pilot’s watches these days.
We’ve seen these two designs stretched into different directions in the past, from black and orange, to field watch green, and they never seem to look out of place. It’s the same story with the white and blue, which provide a levity to the design that we don’t often associate with OG war pilots.
