    Moved to the right forum, you indeed posted in the wrong one.
    Your Candino dates back to the 70s and most likely houses an ETA automatic movement, 25 jewels. My guess 2873. if you open up the back and look what is engraved under the balance wheel you will get to know what movement you got.
    Kind regards

    Welcome to Vintage and I second what Mike said. Candino was a minor brand, located in Biel (more famous for being the present day home of Omega).

    Candino is still around. I believe they only retail in Europe and have concentrated in the 'emerging' markets of Eastern Europe. I have found them to be a source of pretty good watches, much like Bucherer. Here are my Candino Twins, a Valjoux 7750 and an ETA 2892-A2 with added GMT and power reserve complications:

    (The 7750 is almost identical to a Limited Edition NAWCC watch which is in Adam's upcoming NAWCC wristwatch exhibit.)

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I have never noticed that they do... In the history of watches this is not uncommon.
