    It's 9ct Birmingham hallmark and the numbers inside the case are 73517.

    The movement is marked as 15 jewels London. And 'swiss made'.

    Any help with age, type of Movement, whether it's worth getting the dial.repaired.on the damaged bit etc greatfully received.

    Thankyou!

    Hi,

    J.W Benson was a high end jeweller and watchmaker in London.I have had a quick look around and have been unable to identify the movement of this watch.
    As to age, the best thing is to take a close up pic of the inside caseback and hallmarks. There are others here you will be able to give you the close to exact age from that image. Also a closer photo of the movement will help us as well. There may be a symbol or numbers under the balance wheel and this is very helpful for identification.

    Here is a little history on J.W Benson.
