    Found my answer on the internet

    The maker's signature (PASTO Germany) and the fact that it has two different rulers (decimal and imperial) indicate clearly that this is a post WW II product. Moreover, the position of the magnetic declination luminous marker (5 W) is consistent with the 1950's.
