Robust, versatile, and luminous in the dark: a scorpion has the qualities it needs to thrive in many different environments. The same applies to this Laco model, which is also suitable for a wide range of applications. That’s why the watch also features appropriate markings as a special highlight: a relief design in the form of a scorpion.
The four timekeepers of the product range share the same black dial with white arabic numerals as well as the shape of their casing. Depending on the model they differ in their visual colour accents, with the black, unidirectional bezel, the indices and the minute hand being coated in luminous Superluminova paint in white, green, blue, or orange. The long-lasting afterglow effect ensures optimal readability in low lighting conditions or even complete darkness. This is another aspect where the scorpion analogy is appropriate: the scorpion produces fluorescent materials that make it visible at night under UV lighting.
With its solid exoskeleton, the scorpion is also exceptionally tough and strong for its small size. This is another characteristic that applies to this squad watch. The 42 mm diameter “Scorpion” model also resists external influences. This is assured thanks to the solid stainless steel case, and the fact that both the caseback and the crown are screwed into place. The double domed sapphire crystal is scratch-resistant. Its internal anti-reflective coating means that reflections are reduced, with improved transparency. The watch is also waterproof to 30 atmospheres and, to ensure that the watch can be used to the full in the water, different models are available, with a choice of a black rubber or stainless steel strap.
The “Scorpion” combines practical functionality with sophisticated looks. It fulfils its potential in a variety of different settings. From the mountains to the desert or tropical rainforests, this flexible sports watch is ready for daily use in outdoor environments. The names of the four models reflect its purpose, namely Himalaya, Amazonas, Atlantik and Mojave.
ALWAYS READY: LACO SQUAD WATCHES.
Given the history of the aviator watches and maritime watches, it was only a small logical step towards developing a Laco squad watch. This entailed meeting high standards and requirements, especially for outdoor use. When all is said and done, the characteristics of quality, robustness, and clear design have always been the main focus of a Laco watch. In close cooperation with fire departments, the police, and the army, resulted in uncompromising mechanical watches made in Germany. The wearer can always rely on them – among other things, because you can be sure that the battery will not suddenly fail at the wrong moment. With our squad watches we offer a robust solution for daily use in the harshest of conditions – combined with a simple and unique design
EXTREMELY PRECISE, EVEN IN THE DEEP: THE WATERTIGHT DURABILITY OF SQUAD WATCHES.
Squad watches by Laco, depending on the model, provide water resistance of up to 100 ATM. But what does that actually mean?
- 3 ATM: The watch is resistant to sweat, raindrops and splashes.
- 5 ATM: The watch is waterproof, however, you should not swim with it or take a shower (a swimming stroke, for example, can generate a pressure higher than 5 ATM).
- 10 ATM: The watch can be worn for snorkelling.
- 20 ATM and more: The watch is suitable for diving.
Our tip for long enjoyment of your Laco squad watch: check the water resistance of the watch regularly, ideally once a year.
PRECISION WORK, MADE IN GERMANY.
Thanks to Laco expertise, when it comes to producing high quality marine and aviator watches, our experienced watchmakers have also been making accurate squad watches for many years. This is why the handcrafted squad watches from Laco not only feature an unconventional crown position and magnetic field protection, but are also equipped with a helium valve and screwed in natural rubber band. The contrasting hour and minute hands, coated with Superluminova C3, give our squad watch its distinctive design while ensuring optimum readability – at any time, day or night. Hard and double-thickness sapphire glass reliably protects the brightly lit, fluorescent numerals and hands. The screwed mineral glass base provides an insight into watchmaking – and is, depending on the model, waterproof up to 100 ATM.
