Gold coins have always been the pinnacle of currency since the Roman Empire and the coins of choice for investors are still gold Sovereigns and gold Britannia coins.At Plus Gold Refining we understand the market for investment gold and offer a wide range of gold bars and coins suitable for this purpose.Hallmarking is carried out by an organisation independent of the manufacturer of the item.
American watch cases usually carry the maker's name and trade mark whereas British and Swiss made gold and silver cases are often anonymous apart from the hallmarks.
Many American watches were imported into Britain as bare movements and cased with British made watch cases which, if they are gold or silver, carry British hallmarks.
This page isn't an end in itself, it is intended to help make a start on identifying the hallmarks in your watch case and then lead you to another page with more detail.
On this page there is a brief description of a number of different types of hallmarks that you are likely to find in a watch case, and then for the British and Swiss marks there are links to take you to the full page of information for that type of mark.
In Britain gold or silver watch cases, wherever they were made, should always have been assayed and hallmarked in a British assay office before sale.
