    Your watch case is Gladiator grade 10K gold-filled case and was made by the Dueber Watch Case Manufacturing Co.

    Thank you very much Kent.... I am curious and may I ask if you know if this case could be around the same era as my 1908 Hamilton 940. Thank you again!!

    In general (and there are many exceptions), we can't tell such things from a case's interior markings. This case is not one of the exceptions. However, if you put up pictures of the front and back of the watch (including the pendant and bow) we may be able to say if it looks like cases used in 1908.

    By the way, you may not have an accurate date unless you looked up the movement serial number directly from Hamilton records. The serial number vs. date information given in tables in various publications and online sites are approximations at best, If you provide us with the movement serial number we can confirm 1908 or come up with the true date.

    Just to demonstrate how difficult it is to come up with an accurate production date based upon a serial number range, this Scan From A Hamilton Production Ledger Page shows that the 992s within the tiny range of 786001-786020 were finished and sold almost two years apart.
