Gold filled is simply a very thin layer applied to the base metal case and will wear off over time. Solid 10K gold is an alloy that is mixed with gold throughout and will always retain it's color and never wear off. The solid 10K gold case contains a lot more gold than then the gold filled version and will cost more up front. However, the gold filled case will look awful in a year or two while the solid 10K case will last as long as you keep the watch and beyond.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your advice, I'll bear it in mind."
SOURCE: I have an antique bulova
You can't tell actually the date when it is manufactured by the serial number of the case metal.
However if you manage to open the backside and look in the inside there will be markings that will help in the dating of the watch.. Look at the image below for example
as soon as you open the back case there is a symbol (pointing by red arrow) that was being used that time for dating.
From the table below.
Dating at the early 50's are different. 2 digits printed on the backcase signifies the date manufactured.
L indicates 50's
M indicates 60's
N indicates 70's
so if you see a 2 digit stamped on the backcase for example is L2
then it means it is made on 1952.
You will not find this information unless there is a 2 digit on the backcase or you will find a geometric symbol inside the case of your watches.
I hope this helps
