    Does anyone recognize the case marks pictured below? I know it is a 9 carat gold case, but don't recognize the assay mark, date mark, or the case maker (R&S). The watch is a demi-hunter, approximately 14 size. Thanks in advance.

    R&S = Rotherham & Sons - registered at three dates in 1907 May, July & December Your hallmark - imported mark London 1915/16

    EDIT - I see Graham has corrected my error - Apology I read the Birmingham date letter 1911/12 is correct.

    Hi timelyrestorations,
    The marks are London import marks for 1911/12. The R&S is the sponsor's mark for the importer, Rotherham & Sons.

    Regards,

    Graham
