    kano bauhaus back from service

    I bought this one off an auction site in december of 2010. It was NOS. The KANO company, named after founder Karl Nonnenmacher, produced watches in Pforzheim, Germany during the 1930's. The company and its facilities were destroyed in WWII. Based on the AS 984 movement, this watch dates to 1938-1940. When I got it, the original leather band was so brittle it crumbled off the fixed bar lugs. The movement was super clean, but the barrel screw broke off in the arbor during disassembly, so parts had to be sourced, which took 9 months. Anyway it's back now. The case is 35mm stainless, the dial is more of a reflective taupe or creamy silver than the champagne in these photos.

    Like the style of your Kano, the lugs are really fantastically elongated - I have one similar by Nivrel [their original incarnation]....



    Love the Bauhaus numerals and blued hands.

    Looks like something straight out of the Nomos factory!

    Hi Hartmut,

    indeed, Nomos claims to have created this design, and I suspect the complete Bauhaus idea also.

    But they waited some decades before introducing such a watch. It is generous, to leave the design to so many predecessors free of charge.
