it seems they are looking forward to a group of people that don't bother the costs of a "limited" watch.
We will get a serial case, a serial case back, a serial crown, probably a special dial and special hands, driven by a vintage but mediocre movement - nothing really exotic: All for 1.498,- €...at least.
the case is customized, as are the hands and the dial. We got two backs (see through and solid), two different leather straps with rivets and a nice leather case.
The "modern" 2824-2 was modified: Not automatic but handwound plus hacking second.
Both movements 2824/2801 and Durowe 7425/7525 are used since the early seventies: ETA 2824 was introduced in 1971, Durowe 7425 in 1972.
Both are nearly identical in their size: here you can have a look at
- after "frank.be" did all those improvements to a poor draft LACO presented to us originally,
- after the issue with the "so called blued" hands was settled
- after we complained about the unsatisfactory engravings in the back - we, not LACO's QM!
I am deeply disappointed that LACO support the development of this current model even less than two years ago.
I miss Mr.Pfeiffer more and more.
Are you selling the watches? Is it your business to earn your living by producing watches? :roll:
You and Janne, all other forum members and I too are potential customers for goods we like, but not have to develop.
At a tailor's shop I tell them what sort of fabric, classic buttons or modern ones, three pieces or two pieces suit, etc. etc.
After every step they tell or better show me, how they understood or whether they can give an advice to make it better.
