Is this Waltham A-17 legit?

Recommended Posts

I have a small collection of vintage British and German military watches. Just venturing into American. Started with an A-11 and an A-17 and an A-17A. I like the look of the A-17 best . It seems to be legitimate to me but I don't have enough experience to be sure. What concerns me is very low serial number on the case back. not the best photos I'm afraid. Would appreciate any comments

     the ww 1 watches are the most interesting,  i don't think the early wrist watches have been faked since they had a collet stem much like the pocket watches.
