While that particular box may have not come with that watch it is the correct one.  A lot of the military themed watches of that period came in that box.  Here is an ad from 1942 showing that box as belonging to The Nighthawk and Medical Officer.   It is not a women's watch box.

It's actually the box these military motif watches came with in the early 40's. Take a look at the ads..

I'll update date from 1942 to 1944 based on case serial number.
