    Good to hear that the watch is running well.

    When was it last cleaned/oiled/adjusted?

    Terrific, looks like you're all set then.

    Not to pry, but if you can service a watch, are you a hobbyist or a professional watchmaker?

    I am a hobbyist, I did attend Braxton collage back in the 80s but to be honest I only made a few tools and went on to be a brick layer then stone Mason, but have always kept my passion for watchmaking and now I seem to do nothing but,

    You'll fit right in here, many of us are tinkerers who just happen to have a passion (if not an addiction) for watches.

    Although this carries a mark attributed to Rotherhams - it is clearly a Swiss product.

    In 1932 Rotherhams become agents for Buren of Switzerland, after the collapse of their previous agent, H. Williamson, and by 1934 were the only watchmakers on show at the British Industry Fair. But by 1937 watches had become an insignificant part of the rapidly diversifying Rotherham’s manufacturing business, with it doubtful any were now being made in Coventry. They kept the Buren agency until the 1960's together with their agency for Ulysse Nardin, long after they ceased making watches in Coventry.

    If you can post a photograph of the complete movement, there are members of the forum who will be able to tell you more about the movement. The case appears to be a '10 year' Dennison gold filled case - but a clearer photograph of the case markings are need to confirm.
