If you search Thomas Russell and Son on this Forum you should find a significant amount of information about the various iterations of the companies owned by members of the family.

Judging from the serial number on the case, which appears to have been made by the Dennison Watch Case Co. in Birmingham England, the watch would date to somewhere between 1910 to 1920*. That is, of course, assuming that the movement is original to the case but I can see no evidence that that is not so.

* Information gleaned from Aaron Lufkin Dennison by Philip T Priestley.

Thank you DaveyG, I'm actually from just outside Birmingham so it's a little more personal. Thanks for the information.
