Adolf Flury-Hug was a person ahead of his time. A visionary who, in 1947, opted for a dream and opened a watchmaking workshop in the annex to his family home in Herbetswil, in the Swiss canton of Solothurn. Currently, the shop is still standing next to the company’s ultramodern factory, which opened in 1989. Not by chance has it withstood time and modernisation; it symbolises Candino’s commitment to the principles of its founders.
Candino has the capability and technology to design and manufacture a complete watch, including all its mechanical components. This translates into a unique competitive advantage in the market. The Herbetswil plant (Switzerland) assembles Swiss Made watches. It has a top-quality factory with the latest production technologies and builds both mechanical and quartz watches. And from the outset, Candino is ahead of its time investing in totally innovative materials and manufacturing processes.
