17 Jewel 7 AM was produced between 1941 - '46 (according to the current database) would need to see the opposite side to find the production date code.

Everything else (Stainless back, Rose bezel, Rose Dial) looks 1940's.

Your date code is this arched top "T"

The watch would be a 1942 model and the ID that Daca provided is right on!
