What is the diameter across the bridges?

There are 2 types of "trench watches".
Watches that were actually issued to military personnel and watches that were MADE to look like trench watches but didn't see "action" unless some guy really liked his watch and took it with him on the frontline or whatnot.
I can't tell whether it is a military watch or not... It seems kind of small... Does it have any extra markings ?
As to the watch, this style movement was made in a variety of sizes, 13" (29.33mm) and from 15" (33.8mm) through to 17" (38.35mm). I have examples of some of these sizes. No one can tell you if this particular watch was from WWI period, the movement was in production then, the style of the case and dial are OK - but they continued to make such watches into the 1920s.
