Additional Information: 

II have two of these similar watch cases and bezels and three different movements and case backs. The subject watch  question is the first photo - a 1948 dated case with a 1947 dated 15J 10BC movement. In the second photo I show both my complete watches (L: 1948 Brewster; R: 1960 Unknown; Middle: 1946 dated 15J 10BC with a case back that starts with a "5" for 1945. The case back fits the Brewster bezel. The third watch on the right is a 1959 (L9) dated case with a 1960 (M0) date 17J 11AF movement. The third photo shows the this subject watch in comparison to the 1960 dated 11AF watch. The bezel is only slightly different in the lugs and in the crown area - otherwise they are exactly the same size and take the same crystal. I could not find any similar bezel and case for 1959-60 so I'll post it as an Unknown...however, I did want to point out the similarities between the two watches.

Additional Information: 

Purchased in very rough condition, but somehow outer case and dial / hands were there.  I replaced movement due to train rust.  Original was same, but date symbol was + .  (1943)  Original glass crystal was intact, but looked like someone had taped it to a car tire for a few miles.  No such damage to case - wierd.  Replaced crystal with plastic CMT346-14.  Just for searching sake - the Brewster is very similar the Attorney, but has an additional step in the sides.

Found the other day in an antique store.... needs a redial, but the case was excellent under all that black tarnish.  17 Jewel, 10BA movement runs when shaken but will need a cleaning/servicing.

Sorry about the pics but I'm away from home and these were taken in a hotel bathroom with my cellphone.  They'll be better when I get home.
