USA market, it would be 1949-1950 best guess. Most likely with the Universal Geneve caliber 285 movement.

I don't think you'll find a model number or more information that this.

The numbers on the inside of the case back are actually a Universal case serial number and the model number.

The serial number puts the case as made in 1946 to 1949:

The other number is the model number of the watch, which may be unique to LeCoultre.

Where do you get that table? As it's pretty much the table that appeared in my book on JLC chronographs with UG movements. It looks like someone cut and paste that somewhere. I used a curve fit to generate the numbers so they're clearly coming from the book.
