What year is this Laco Sport

2669 Views 10 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Harry047
Hi, New to the forum, I just picked up this Laco Sport's watch, which I believe is from the 1940's, but others have said it's from the 50's or 60's.
I know it needs a new strap and glass, but it keeps great time.
It has a 526 movement, and it's number is 912437.
Any help in dating this Laco would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks Harry

Since it has no 4 digit case no on the back my guess would be: 1945 or even a bit later.
A - Z btw is Auf (open) and Zu (close) but I am sure you figured that out already as you opened the case back.
Will it be difficult to have the glass replaced in the UK?
Not really, you need to find a good watchnmaker who knows where to source a domed acrylic crystal from. Should be no big deal for an experienced, knowlegdeable watch maker.

I wouldn't try here:

i am sure you know that: The temporary facility was the Metallwarenfabrik Wolff, Pforzheim, Hohenzollernstraße 81-83, owned by Ludwig Hummel, bought in 1939 (according to Wirtschaftsarchiv Baden-Württemberg). No production numbers.
