About the House of Laco

Laco is a Germa company known for its robust and eye-catching navy and pilot watches. The company was founded in 1925 by  Frieda Lacher and Ludwig Hummel in Pforzheim, Germany. The watchmakers originally started the business with installing Swiss movements into German-made cases they designed on their own. In 1933, Ludwig established Durowe in Germany to supply German-made movements and stop relying on Swiss movements. Durowe would not only supply the movements for Laco watches but also for other German watch manufacturers, including Stowa. The legendary pilot watch went into production in 1936.
