    Hi Clive,
    If possible can you post the movement serial number.
    I believe your case was made by Providence Watch Case company in Providence, RI.
    Guaranteed 20 years means that it is gold filled (a base metal sandwiched between two thin sheet of gold).
    I can go on and prove to you how little I actually know about cases or I can send you to a couple of sites where they know what they’re talking about.
    Here’s a great article at NAWCC on case materials and companies with some links to photos etc.

    Doug Stewart has some good info on case companies and different American watch companies at:
    http://www.pocketwatchrepair.com Just hover your cursor over the menu that says “Watch Information” and look at the drop down menu for cases and companies etc.

    Have fun Clive!
