That is what I was thinking Mark, or it could be the Lady Liberty if it has more than 7 jewels...

The Debutante has a more square case at the lug ends.

If the jewel count is 7J, I would go with the "Miss Liberty" as shown in the ad below...The jewel count and angled corners help on this one.

Can't see jewel count on the debutante (cut off).

These are fun to correctly ID.

Case dimensions may help also as several of the Ladies are similarly shaped yet sized differently.

 

The 'LADY BULOVA' ad is Dated 1935, from what Year is the 'MISS LIBERTY' ad?

I must say I stand corrected as it looks just like the one above... I am a little bummed as the box is for a "Debutante" so I guess that will have to be my next hunt...  Are the two pictured above Lady Bulova or Miss Liberty? So confusing for a newbie :)

Shown above is what is advertised in 1935 as the 'LADY BULOVA' - and don't feel bad, the Ladies are confusing for all of Us.

and in a 1936 ad is a debutante which is very close to subject watch but diff jewel count. Bulova adds to the confusion...

Not if the Jewel count differs, but this Watch is in a box marked 'DEBUTANTE' so perhaps it is?
