April 2003

Timing your own challenge
This slogan announces the renewal of Candino. The corporate identity has been completely revised in order to endow the brand with a more contemporary image.

A new team of designers, stylists and engineers has developed an extensive range of watches to suit a broad public, receptive to Swiss quality, and offer an outstanding price-quality ratio consistent with the Festina Group's policy.

On the sponsorship front, Candino is continuing to cooperate as the “Main Sponsor” with the prestigious “Davidoff Swiss Indoors” tennis tournament. But other sponsorship activities are already planned!

C4229/1 (navette)
Since its inception, the House of Candino has been making elegant products for its ladies. Once again, Candino has marked its presence in the world of jewellery watches by launching its new ladies line.

This timepiece with its graceful and elongated lines makes a perfect match for every wrist thanks to its curved back, designed for maximum comfort. The unique shape of the watchcase is perfectly integrated into the bracelet and gives the whole timepiece an aesthetic coherence, which is worthy of an item of jewellery.

A precision Swiss quartz movement and a hardened mineral glass crystal endow this timepiece with technical qualities that enable the wishes of even the most exacting customers to be satisfied.

Many versions, in stainless steel set with real diamonds, bicolor or gold-plated are on display at the International Watch and Jewellery Show in Basel.

C4228/2 (piazza)
Drawing its inspiration directly from the aesthetic criteria of the 1970s and with its uncompromising shape, this unisex wristwatch is distinctly more fashion-conscious than most of the other models offered by Candino. With its trendy large size and elongated opening.... this timepiece is quite literally fashioned from a block of stainless steel. Its facets, polished with the utmost care, give it the appearance of a precious gemstone with an unrivalled sparkle. Despite its large size, its curved back makes for outstanding wearer comfort. Fitted with a Swiss precision quartz movement with the date window at 6 o'clock, this timepiece is designed to share the exceptional moments that typify our daily lives...

Four versions of this new exclusive model are on display at the International Watch and Jewellery Show in Basel.

C7509/3 (monaco chrono)

The anti-allergenic strap makes a perfect match for the stainless steel case offering water-resistance to 100 metres. Fitted with a Swiss precision movement, this chronograph measures time in tenths of a second. To ensure perfect readability, this model is fitted with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

Five versions of this new chronograph are on display at the International Watch and Jewellery Show in Basel.
