Swiss Made – 1925 – Ald Case Diameter: 50 mm – Weight: 106 gr A.L.D, stands for Aaron Lufkin Dennison. He was born in 1812 in Freeport Me, U.S.A. He was the first one ever to manufacture watches by machinery. He was trained as a watch repairer and together with associate Edward Howard a practical clockmaker he built a factory at Roxbury Mass in 1853. Later the business moved to Waltham, near Boston. In 1857 because of financial difficulties he sold the property to Royal E. Robbins of New York who took the firm, the Waltham Watch Co. on to international success. A.L. Dennison moved to England in the meantime where he started to manufacture watch cases. His original premises, 24 Villa Road, Handsworth in Birmingham were later extended to Nos 24-32 and the business became known as Dennison, Wigley & co. A.L. Dennison died in 1895. The business continued till the surviving members Franklin (Ald’S son) and Alfred Wigley dissolved their partnership on 31st August 1905, Afterwards Franklin Dennison continued the business as The Dennison Watch Case Co until it was converted into a limited liability company, registered on 23rd July 1919. In 1911 the Dennison Watch Case Co’s range had made watches from 18, 15, and 9ct gold, silver and gold-filled cases, the latter with 25 (sun), 20 (moon) and 10 (star) years guarantees. It also had sovereign purses in 22,18,15 and 9ct gold, silver, 20 year gold filled and nickel.
