I did find that the stamped dates mean July 1942 it was made

Clock winds and runs perfectly. Has never been opened or serviced, straight out of the send home crate. Man who liberated the piece was a captain of the 101st airborne- a bomber pilot, hoping to get some more photos of him from the family. He also had a lanyard of sorts that went with the clock- not sure if it still with the family or in the crate. Many cloth and items of ephemera also in the send home crate, not certain I will be seeing those - but nice to know they exist.
