Frequently Asked Questions

Aviation watches are characterised by their functionality and usefulness to pilots. Their features often include:

  • A large, legible dial for easy reading
  • Luminosity for visibility at night
  • Markings on the bezel to help with fuel consumption, wind correction and other factors
  • Dual-time and GMT functions for time-zone switching
  • A large winding crown for easy adjustments even with gloves on

The Rolex Air-King is amongst the most revered luxury aviation watches. These watches pay homage to aviation’s golden age. Rolex Oyster watches often accompanied flight pioneers in the 1930s, withstanding the temperatures and altitudes, including a famous flight over Mt. Everest. This watch is a tribute to those ties between aviation and Rolex.

Laco watches are the epitome of German pilot watch engineering. These watches have been produced for almost 100 years at this point, so you know a Laco watch will be made with the utmost quality and respect for the practice of aviation. During the golden age of aviation, Laco was one of the only companies that had permission to manufacture pilot watches. This legacy continues to run through the brand’s design sensibilities to this day.
