This is an English silver pocket watch with clear hallmarks for Birmingham 1912

These cases were made by a company called Dennison and were such good quality that watch manufacturers from all over the world made their watch movements the correct size so that they would fit into these cases and be retailed in the UK. Such manufactures included Omega, Rolex, JW Benson and in this case Waltham USA. The movement would have been made in America but sent to England where it was then cased and sold
