    Hmmmmm. Let's see:

    1. Shockproofing present. Points to wards 1950s rather than 1940s (although 1940s is possible)

    2. No fixed lugs. Also points to 1950s

    3. Overall look (bicolour dial) points to late forties, early fifties

    Others may mention some more points. I'd say it's early 1950s.

    This is not related to the date of production, but this appears to be a "clamshell" case (i.e. Brevet 189190). These are very collectible. Here is a nice blog post about these cases. My Blog: Brev. 189190 waterproof clamshell watch case
