Thank you for asking Thegrailwatch! The Laco is a lot of watch for its price and quality...
... And though agree with you the lugs are a bit akward looking the design follows the original design and wears comfortable as it is not a very big watch nor heavy.
Im very happy with it.
You should try it on your wrist though and feel it. You can choose dials too, both dials follow the original pilots and navigator designs.
