Welcome to myBulova littleredhen77, your watch looks like Ethel (T on advert)

year of manufacture will be 1945 (not 1935), triangle as data code is identical

Looks similar to the Ethel. Subject watch is two tone, and I think the lugs are slightly different?
Here's snippet of 1946 ad with text, and subject watch.

Hello littleredhen, welcome to myBulova. I think you're fortunate to have this lovely keepsake from your grandmother. Watches are such personal things as they are worn and used daily. It appears that she cared for it quite well, I hope you can treasure it until you pass it to the next generation.

I agree that the year is 1945 (I changed the date of the record). I think the model is Ethel, while the advert doesn't specifically state two tone gold it was quite common for the diamond accents to be set in white gold. As always, we recommend having it serviced if you plan to wear/use it.

Thanks for sharing it!

This advert states that the diamonds were set in a white gold triangle within a yellow gold case.

A lovely little 1946 Bulova Ethel

Well based on the second ad, I'm in agreement with the Ethel model ID.
