No clue but it's a great looking watch. Dial is very Hamilton Khaki. Where did you get it?

No military watch expert here, but it at least looks like a Benrus Type II.

Looks like a marathon or adanac steel navigator.
I had a few- now they go for stupid prices for a cheap quartz. They are a $200 or so dollar watch but now people are wanting close to $1000 for a real one.
Other people make them- just search eBay.

Bought it from a guy in Germany who has no idea who made it just like me.

Probably not made by Sherpas.

There are a couple homage makers out there I found through image searching. The closest I’ve found is “DSN” (DavidSen).

The difference in the photos I’ve seen is DSN homages have engraved case backs and yours seems plain.

I would test the watch for water resistance prior to taking it into the water. If this watch was made by one of the Hong Kong homage makers, they are usually rated to a very modest depth (3ATM or so). According to what I’ve read, however, these can be upgraded with better deals to achieve decent resistance.
