Candino watches

From the very beginning, in 1947, Candino watches have been ahead of their time. The vision of founder Adolf Flury-Hug combining a pioneering spirit and complete control over all levels of the manufacturing process has ensured Candino Swiss watches withstand the test of time.

Brief history of Candino watches 

In 1947, Adolf Flury-Hug realized his dream and opened a watchmaking workshop in an outbuilding of his parental home in Herbetswil. This workshop still stands next to the ultra-modern Candino factory, which opened in 1989. The factory in Herbetswil (Switzerland) assembles high-quality watches with the latest technologies. There are 64 qualified employees who assemble the watches and carefully control the quality of every part of a Candino watch. This is an essential step in the certification of the product before it is put on the market. 

In 2002 Candino became a member of the Festina Group. The advantage of this merger is that Candino was able to make major strides through Festina's know-how regarding management, logistics and distribution. In turn, Candino has strengthened the group by contributing Swiss tradition and expertise. 

High quality through complete control over the production process 

The goal of Candino is that anyone who wears a Candino watch feels the intrinsic values ​​of the brand: tradition, elegance and avant-garde. The brand has the skills and technology to design and manufacture a complete watch, including all the mechanical parts that make it up. Every day, research is done into new products, materials and designs. The aim of this is to offer the best product at a fair price. 

Proprietary Swiss movement: Soprod 

Festina Group owns the Swiss movement manufacturer Soprod, which has three production sites: one in the city of Sion, where the quartz movements are made; the second, in Les Reussilles, where the production of automatic movements and the integration of complex modules takes place; and the third, in Saignelégier, where moevement parts are manufactured.
