    The size together with the sweep second speak that it is a so called "nurse watch". Doing his job it is not hygenic to wear a wrist watch and the times as a pulse was measured by counting and timing isn't so long ago. Nice peace.

    Addition some examples:

    The movement in that watch was made by Adolf Schild:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: AS 1188

    I'm not sure when that movement was brought out but the two examples given by Ranfft are from the 1950s. This one looks like it's from about that time too - if anything, you might go back into the 1940s.
