Silver pocket watch stamps

Hi, can anyone please tell me what the stamps on my grandfathers pocket watch mean.
Thanks
Alan

That is a Birmingham sterling silver hallmark for the assay year 1916/17 with the maker’s mark, JR, of Rotherham & Sons of Coventry. Note that this refers to the watchcase only.

Thanks very much for your help Phil
