Looks like the shoreham with 15 jewel movement. Are Both case & movement 1950?
EDIT.  The lugs look a little different?  Blurry 1950 Shoreham ad below:

Looks like an engraved version of the Trident.

Not the Shoreham - lugs on Shoreham don't flow smoothly down from the case sides, they're indented.  Look at the Shoreham in the db and you'll see the difference. Don't see anything in 1949 or 50 that matches although that Trident does appear similar, sans the engraving.

No, not the Shoreham, Trident is closer but not the same as the subject watch.  An engraved variant perhaps?

1950 to 1956 is a stretch, but not impossible.

I have the same Case in the database, non engraved, SS back dated 1950. 15 Jewels dated 1950, w full numeral Dial.
