Laco Atacama Quarz UTC – Equipped for Every Situation

Laco Atacama Quarz UTC – Equipped for Every Situation

Following on the success of the Atacama.2, the watch manufacturer Laco is now poised to introduce its brand new watch, the Atacama Quarz UTC. Functional and technical, the new tool watch has already proven itself in  many critical situations, and received rave reviews from sporty watch fans for its performance during everyday  life and adventures. The new Atacama Quarz UTC boasts many of the same features as its predecessor, but is  slimmer, more robust, and more precise thanks to its quartz movement – as well as considerably less expensive.  It also displays a second time zone, a feature much appreciated by emergency forces.

The Atacama.2 was developed together with the German Armed Forces and has also proven its high  performance and reliability with other professional forces – such as the police, fire department and military.  The new Atacama Quartz UTC was designed for situations requiring maximum safety, resilience, and precision.  The fundamental elements on the dial – such as the hands, numerals, and indices – are covered with the  luminous material Superluminova. Thus, the Atacama always remains a reliable companion, even at night and  in unfavorable lighting conditions. The two-tone hands – hour and second with Superluminova C3, minute  orange – ensure intuitive readability from any angle. The built-in 24-hour scale with its second time zone is done  in orange, as is the UTC hand with its skeletonized arrowhead. 

The conical stainless-steel case, pressure resistant to 20 ATM, is black PVD coated to avoid unwanted reflections while wearing. The same applies to the unidirectional rotating countdown bezel and the crown  positioned at twelve o’clock. To ensure the high water resistance at all times, the crown should always be  screwed back in after setting or adjusting the hands. An orange ring under the crown indicates whether or not  the crown is screwed in all the way. The Swiss quartz movement Ronda 515.24H ticks behind the screwed back case. The advantages of the caliber include not only the high precision of only a few seconds deviation per  month, but also the GMT function with quick correction. What’s more, a date window is located at six o’clock,  done in contrasting white for outstanding readability. 

Thanks to its much thinner quartz movement, the height of the case could be reduced to just 10.5 millimeters.  However, though the diameter is 46 millimeters, it has a contact area of only 34 millimeters. This makes the  Atacama Quartz UTC more suitable for narrower wrists, as it wears significantly smaller than models with a  comparable diameter. The comfortable and robust rubber strap remains unchanged, keeping the watch  securely in place on the wrist with a PVD-coated stainless-steel buckle. Flexible lugs between the case and the  strap ensure that the watch ergonomically adapts to the wrist. 

The new Atacama Quartz UTC will be available for pre-sale at Red Army Watches at a price of MYR 2,910.00.  Delivery will take place from mid-November.
