    help identify KANO GENTS WATCH

    Hi I am new to this forum,I am here because 40 years ago I was given a Gold Plated KANO wristwatch 21 Rubis Incabloc.this was an heirloom from my Honoured uncle and was given to me by his Wife Gertrude on his death,she told me she had bought the Watch for him in Germany in the early sixties as a present. I would appreciate some help to identify it as I am some what intrigued as the KANO urefabrik in Pforzheim was destroyed in an air raid in 1944 and From what I have found in English they only made 15 Rubis incabloc.I enclosed photos of the face and rear for your inspection.I would very much appreciate your help as I want to write a history of the watch as it is going to my son who is a Historian. Kind regards marko

    In the 1950s Kano and Kano-co used 17/18/21/25 jewels movements as well, for example Durowe 420, , HB115MS H. Becker), FB 80 (Förster). Rare birds: Chronometer in 14k. The 15 jewels movement was the Kano 913, a rebranded Urofa 58.

    Nice sample of the 1960s but does not help us any further. Pics of back and movement might help, especially to see the logo under the balance spring.
