It is - as Biglove guessed in my previous thread - a Longines. Ref. 4858 in a 32mm stainless steel case, 17j calibre 12.68Z.

Whatever the serial number lookup suggested about the year, I don't think it's 1942. Dunno, some shitty glitch in the serials lookup applet. By all the other charts, a 94... serial would be 1954. And 1954 it probably is.
Anyway, contacted the Longines Heritage Department, providing them with the serial, reference number, and photos. I'll see what will they say, when they get back to me.
The 12.68Z certainly is pleasing to look at:
The watch has what appears to be the original crown, with the Longines name and the winged hourglass logo:
And just a wrist shot to wrap it up:
