    Question Can anyone tell me what brand is my watch?

    Hello everyone, i would like to know what brand is my watch and how much does it costs. I can't find any name of the brand or serial number on it except for the steel and I asked at the jewelry stores and shopkeepers but they don't know. I live in small town and there are no experts for watches knowing the fact that we have 2-3, max 4 jewelry stores here. I think it's an old watch, it was my dad's watch. Thank you in advance i will appreciate a lot!

    Welcome to Watchuseek. Since there is no dial, the name should be on the crystal and there, it might have worn away. Perhaps it should really be the underside of the crystal.....?!

    Anyway, I can tell you that the movement is certainly by the (generic) movement maker Peseux - calibre 7040 in skeletized version - and that the watch may well be by Candino (but that's no guarantee - Candino made watches like that but in the absence of a name, I can't rule out the possibility that others made very similar watches). Check this link for the movement and a specimen watch by Candino:

    Candino or Cyma would be my guess.

    We don't give valuations in this sub-forum. Generally, if you look up some 1970s/1980s skeleton watches on eBay, you'll get an idea of the average price. Search for these in "completed listings".
