In today’s installment of Historical Horology, I just want to give a quick preface, and then set you loose on the main article that I ran across. In this day and age, many watch brands like to emphasize their lineage, especially if the brand has stayed in the hands of one family. But what if you you found out that you were a descendant of a founder of a watch company you admire – and that it’s still in family hands?
That’s precisely what happened to Christian Kriegeskotte. After his father discovered that Laco was still around in 2009, they set about trying to figure out who was actually still running the brand. Was it a faithful steward, or just some investment group attempting to capitalize on the good name of the brand? Well, I can’t put it any better than he put it in the article – so head on over to Worn & Wound and check it out.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
