I do not know anything about military watches but the serial number of the movement dates it to 1944. I am not exactly sure if the movement is a 161/162/163 but I am sure others will be able to tell you.

Hi, you have seen the serial number. Then you have the model number under the balance wheel.

How do you define "valuable" ?
The one I show is priceless, the inherited watch of an orphaned man from his grandfather...
