Looking at the ads for 1948 the Cadet was a very popular model.  I found ads with it engraved and plain case, with this dial and with a different dial with dots 9, 12, 3, and with 15 jewels and 17 jewels.

Maybe a '49 case but the movement definitely has 48 stamped in it. Early '49 production maybe ?

Yes, early 1949 using a 1948 marked movement.
