    Candino Supersport?

    Found this Candino Supersport for a few dollars the other day..
    It could use a good clean and a new crystal.
    And the minute hand has lost some of the lume.
    But it is running nicely, loosing about 8-9 sec. a day.

    The movement is a AS 1130 Wehrmachtswerk (Army movement)

    Beside from what I can read on Ranfft, does anyone have any idea to how old the watch could be?

    The dial and case design would suggest mid to late 1950s.

    With three adjustments and a swan-neck regulator, the movement's a quite high-grade one, compared to the usual AS 1130. In a way, reminds me of various generic movements in 1950s Atlantic watches - they never had less than two adjustments, and pretty much always had the copper-tone finishing.

    Interesting to see "Schraubenreguliert" ("regulated by screw", i.e. swan neck fine regulation) on the dial. It pays to advertise.....!

    I hadn't heard of Candino but after seeing yours it seems like a good movement to add to the collection. Found one on Ebay albeit for more than a few dollars like yours but it is a nice watch and decent sized at 34mm w/o crown. This watch hasn't seen much wear and is mint and I figured it would have the same movement as yours since it has Schraubenreguliert and is also a Super Sport. It does have the AS 1130 which is a really nice movement although it seems to be missing a couple of screws and doesn't have three adjustments like yours. Thanks for the post as Candino made good watches and I wouldn't have heard of them without your post.

    No missing screws as it uses a different type pf movement holder that doesn't need them.

    Good to know and now that I look both watches are without the screws. this is the only movement I have that doesn't have either adj or unadjusted on the movement anywhere which I find interesting.

    Depends on the region it was sold in I guess but they are all adjusted.
