This is a gold filled case I picked up recently.

There are no threads on this case. All case pieces fit tightly. There is a outer case body, inner case, with hinged back, holding the movement and bezel that fits the inner case.

That's a new one on me - So everything is snap-fit?

Except for the bezel, not really snap fit.

The bezel fits tightly into the inside movement holder. You have to put the movement in and fit the bezel to around the dial and the inside movement holder. Then you can tighten the case screws to the inside holder making sure the opening for the stem in both the movement and movement holder are aligned. Then you slip the movement and movement holder into the outside body of the case. There is a pin on the inside movement holder near where the stem enters that will align and hold the inside movement holder in place. Once everything is aligned and in place, push the crown and stem down to the winding position and everything is nice and tight.

Marty

If you are talking about what is stamped on the inside of the outer case, it is:

Kenosha (in a small arc at the top of the stamp)

Badger (in a straight line just below Kenosha)

Pat Sep.10.89 (below Badger)

202834

I don't know if I could get a better picture of the markings.

All parts have either the full serial number or the last 3 of the serial number.

After a little research and digging I found the patent documents for this case. I have attached a scanned copy for anybody that are interested.
