LACO have a brand new collection of Squad Watches inspired by the some of the World’s most dramatic adventure destinations.

Climb the Himalayas with the Laco Squad Watch Himalaya, the most muted of the collection with its single bright orange minute hand.

The Himalaya has a 42mm in diameter by 13.5mm thick Stainless steel case which is fitted with a double domed and anti-reflective Sapphire crystal and a screw-down case-back with scorpion relief.

Further diver’s features include: a guarded screw-down crown, a unidirectional rotational diver’s bezel with a ceramic inlay ceramic with luminous dive-time scale and 300m of water-resistance.

The Himalaya gets a matte black dial with combination baton and Arabic numerals brightly glowing SLN, a white minute track and a stealthy black date window at 3 o’clock.

Power comes from a 17 jewel automatic movement, the Laco 24 which is based on an ETA 2824.2 Elaboré grade.

Irrespective of which of the four new Squad Watches you choose, all sport a special case-back with a 3D scorpion motif. I am not sure of the significance of the scorpion but it does look cool!

The Himalaya comes with a 22mm black rubber divers strap or alternatively opt for the Himalaya MB and get a 3-link Stainless steel bracelet with a diver’s safety clasp.

MSRP is 930€ (rubber) / 990€ (steel), so just another 50 euros for the bracelet which is very fair.

Thoughts? Understated yet sporty; I like it!
