    Vintage ladies' watch marked "Anido"

    Hi everyone,

    Another thrift find, which seems to be a no-name manual with "Anido" on the dial. I've found zero information on this branding and am hoping that the hive mind has something up its sleeve and someone has seen one of these before, or possibly its other no-name cousins. The rest of the markings on the dial say "17 jewels", "Permaspring", "Swiss Made". The caseback says "10K RGP BEZEL STAINLESS BACK" beside a little fancy "L". Inside the caseback it says "ATIN W.C. CO. N.Y. U.S.A."

    A typical post war ladies watch. I would have said 1950s, judging by the style, but the movement is a Fontainemelon/Standard Cal. FHF/ST 69-21 or similar. Here is that movement with your bridge layout (Ranfft shows a different bridge layout for the Cal. 69-21):

    ...which was made a little later than the 1950s. The inside of the back case suggests that it was assembled in the US from imported parts (the movement is Swiss, for one) and the US import code looks like "VOS" which would make the importer one of the following: Voumard, Sheffield, Baume & Mercier, Britix or Jenco Watch Co. (Jenny & Frey).
