    Looks like 1930's to early 1940's with what appears to be a 15 jewel movement in a chrome plated case. Very popular design similar to watches I have seen from Revue, Damas, Grana, etc.
    And a bit of history in this thread.

    No, not an army issue. Black dial watches with painted numerals and sub seconds were very popular. Companies from Revue to Westclox made them.
