    Felca was owned and operated by Titoni watch company based in Grechen, Swiss. Titoni is very popular in Asia and the Middle East where they have been marketed since the 50's. I believe that Felca was marketed in North America years ago. According to Dr. Ranfft the 2790-1 movements were produced between 1976 and 1980.

    Actually Titoni was created by Felca. The company, originally Felco, created the Titoni brand for the Far East market in 1952. It still used Felca as a brand in Europe. Eventually, as its market in Europe was weak, and its market in China etc was strong, the company dropped the Felca brand and became Titoni.

    Thank you for the correction. One of the reasons I love this forum is there is always someone who knows more.
