Hi,
The case bear the Hallmark of London, the letter "s" is for the year 1912/13 ( The change of the letter happen on the 5th of March)
From "THE WATCHCASE MAKERS OF ENGLAND" by Philip Priestley
No trace of the case maker "C&Cdd".

Sir John Bennett Limited 'Founded in the Reign of George II,' one of the leading London retailers in the second half of the 19th century, Bennett himself being one of London's most colourful characters. (www.antiquewatchsrore.com)
