Uwe, I'm not sure if the Laco Automatic Admiral will be discontinued or notAdmirals and Divers? Is the Admiral a discontinued model? Checking their online catalog I couldn't find an "Admiral" anywhere but did find one very similar called a Quartz Squad watch. The auto Squad is really growing on me - very tempting.
i would email Laco to see if they give you an answer to that one.
As for the Squad watches they have the all black PVD and the SS version.
This watch will not disappoint its very well made and super comfy to wear. It does have a little weight to it which makes it feel solid as a rock.
Good luck and post up some pics when you get one in your hands. :-!
