    The serial number dates it to 1924. The 10 year warranty on the case was related to how long the layer of gold fill would last. The higher the number the thicker it was and generally the better quality. They longest warranties were either 25 or 30 years. Dennison was a British case maker. Nice looking watch.

    It's a hunter style case. While it's not higher grade movement it's still a beautiful watch. It makes a wonderful family heirloom. Keep it in good health.

    Here is some more info on the movement.

    For reference, Waltham made about 2.5 million model 1908's, of which approx. 600,000 were grade 610 (the open face version being slightly more prevalent, but it's a pretty close split). They made them from 1908 up until they closed the doors in the 50's, although the last 610 was made in 1934.
