HISTORY OF AARON DENNISON
Aaron Dennison was an important pioneer in watchmaking by machinery; in fact it could be said that he was the most important pioneer, in that it was his ideas that started the mass production of watch movement parts by machinery in America, which had major knock-on effects on watchmaking in Switzerland and England.
After initiating a revolution in watchmaking, Dennison set up a company in Birmingham, England, to make watch cases, and many collectors will have watches with cases made by the Dennison watch case company.

Very good antique condition. Push button mechanism fully functional, spring loaded bed inside perfect working condition. Clasps tightly. Minor marks to case both back and front, nothing deep. Minor marks to inside of case also, again nothing too bad. Lovely sovereign holder.
