    Welcome to WUS. You will notice the site is divided into a number of distinct forums. This is the CLOCK forum. Vintage or the Lanco forum would be a much better place to ask your question.

    There are a number of guidelines and forum rules you might want to look over. Enjoy!

    "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!

    It is a swiss made ladies Lanco of the 60ties I guess.

    Lanco = Langendorf Watch Co. 1873, Langendorf/CH

    Lanco did not survive the quartz revolution.

    Langendorf was acquired by the Tissot/Omega group round about 1970 or 1971. One of the reasons was that they had a highly sophisticated automated (as much as possible) production line which the Tissot group wanted. The Lanco brand was dropped a few years later. If you search this forum you'll find quite a lot about the brand.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.
