Judging by the model and the 6 digit serial number I am going to guess late 1950's. Does the movement have a full rotor or is it a bumper movement? I would replace the crystal with another plexiglass (plastic) crystal so it can be polished when needed. NICE watch with the original crown.

VERY late 50's then. Once we got into the 60's we saw 7 digit serial numbers.

Looks nice man! Throw the bracelet away, it is not original anyway and that style chews up the inside of the lugs.
