Form and Function: The Laco Frankfurt GMT Schwarz Wins Red Dot Award 2020
The Laco Frankfurt GMT Schwarz emerged victorious from the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020.
Embodying the strong toolwatch pedigree and century-long tradition of German independent watchmaking, a Laco aviator watch is not only a precise and robust timepiece on your wrist, but also a piece of history.
And history has once again been made - the Laco Frankfurt GMT Schwarz pilot watch has won the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020, receiving a Red Dot for its excellent design. The Red Dot Award is one of the biggest and most prestigious design contests worldwide.
Visually, the matte grey, sandblasted stainless steel case gives the Frankfurt GMT a robust, stealthy appearance, with splashes of contrasting orange highlights throughout. The GMT function offers a second time zone displayed by the 24-hour hand, and adjustable via the inner rotating bezel. The stylised aircraft on the second hand completes the award-winning design statement. Spec wise, the Frankfurt GMT houses calibre Laco 93, a modified automatic movement based on the tried and trusted ETA 2893-2.
