Welcome to myBulova!  A very nice Bulova baguette watch.  A new ladies style that came out at the end of 1930.  Advertised as dainty, classically slender, smart, tiny, slim - two-thirds of a usual watch width.

No I didn’t find another ad for this model.  Those are all descriptions for the “new” baguette watches.

1931 Bulova Jeanette certainly looks correct. 

Interestingly whilst the movement if 17J there doesn't seem to be a center wheel jewel which normally constitutes the 17J count.

It's hard to see from the top, but it's there.

I'm not sure why that centre jewels is so hard to see, I have now found three other examples that look the same, so this is likely not a case of a switched train bridge.

1931 Jeanette.

I pulled the train bridge and confirmed the center wheel jewel is there.

I have a picture but cannot upload to this thread.
