Welcome.   Looks to have an original or period leather strap too.

Thank you!  Yes, the strap is definitely 'vintage' as well. I'm going to have to learn to care for the strap as well as the watch.

Should this be a 1947 based on case serial?

You might be thinking the 17 is a 47 (I have done this before) but if you look again you will see there is a 46 on the other side.  That is what we are going by : )
