I went through the ads from '35 - '43, and the closest case shape is the Goddess of time, but I don't think they had Diamonds.

The Rita is similar, but the Diamonds are all in a row...

Unknown for now.

I looked up until 1947/8, still no joy...

Unk. Lovely watch, you'll be in for a "Happy Christmas"!

The corners on the engraving look a little sharper but this looks very similar to the Lady Bulova in the 1939 ads.  Same diamond arrangement, 17 jewels, the dial and the sides of the case look similar.

I looked at that one also, there are a few examples of it in the database, and although the basic case looks the same, the crystal is more cushion shaped than square. It still could be from the Lady Bulova series though, many of them were embellished with Diamonds.

Martha Washington variant would be my best guessl, but there are a few other models that also come close.

Uknown for now.
