    Does the inside of the case back read: AWCCo?

    American Watch Case Company, Canadian Division in Toronto.


    GREAT job bringing it back to life!

    Thanks guy for your comments.
    From what I've found,serial number places it at 1912.
    Serial number 18447777 Waltham
    As for the case:
    Case 959337 AWC.CO. STERLING.
    I'm really proud to own this piece of Canadian history.

    Hi
    Yes
    1912 makes sense for movement.
    What date is inscription? 1915, I guess.??
    Then all ties up correctly. Movement 1912, sold 1914/15
    Regards
