Very nice. I'm going to guess later 1940s based on the case serial and the high B-series movement serial. Like 1948.

All I know is based on hard work & writing by others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. -me

I thought the same hence I put 1949 in the description.
