When you hear of a watch that’s inspired by the Fallout video game series, it’s likely that the iconic Pip-Boy 2000 will come to mind. It’s a clunky, wrist-worn computer with a green digital readout that tracks everything from your inventory to radiation levels in the post-nuclear apocalyptic world that Fallout is set in. Of course, the Pip-Boy is best left in a video game, and that’s why Laco and aBlogtoWatch teamed up to make a Fallout-inspired watch that you can wear around the office or on a weekend adventure without looking like you just crawled out of a post-apocalyptic, retro-futuristic world.
The new RAD-AUX is based on Laco’s authentic line of flieger watches, but with the custom dial and case finishing techniques Laco introduced in their Erbstück (German for “heirloom”) line. Instead of brushing and polishing the watch, Laco applies rust, dents, scratches, and general wear to give their Erbstück watches an authentic aged look. The RAD-AUX, pulling from the dystopian Fallout universe, takes it to another level.
