    Welcome to the Vintage forum! Sorry, I've never heard of the brand (although it sounds vaguely Skandinavian). Some pictures might help.

    Since the topic had very little to do with the thread you put it in, I moved it to its own thread.

    I've heard of "BASEIKONE" (with an 'I' in the middle). It's a brand originating in Hong Kong in the 1970s or '80s, similar to other brands like ASEIKON and LESEIKORI. What do you see that is similar in all of these? BASEIKONE, ASEIKON, LESEIKORI

    They are bogus brands. Scrape the extra letters off the brand name and you have a more famous name on your watch. These watches are very cheaply built usually with one-jewel Swiss movements and later with Japanese quartz.
