    No idea about the movement. But the watch doesn't look military- a black dial, lumed numerals and hands alone don't make a watch military, quite on the contrary to what the eBay sellers would like you to believe.

    What intrigues me its that The dimensions are small - 30mm, The seller says its from '40s and has antishock device... So i was very keen to know The movement. Military or not 😊

    It's one of the many Unitas calibers, not dissimilar to this one: bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Unitas 165

    The actual caliber should be stamped on it somewhere. The commercial-style incabloc looks '50s to me; these "military inspired" designs were reasonably popular then.
