Can you please confirm the diamond count in the bezel? I count 24 but could be missing some.

You are correct, there are twenty-four (24) diamonds in the watch....Sorry, I made a mistake in typing the info.

Sorry, don't know how I missed this one, guess I was asleep at the wheel. I find no ads for this beauty. Another amazing unknown for me

Could my little beauty be the "Pandora"?  I believe she is.

 

I found a new ad today that seems clearer regarding the center top tier and center bottom tier design having the "pencil design" with the diamond inserted in it.

The ad shows a mono- lug for the cord band to be looped through however, my watch looks like the lugs were altered underneath the diamond tiered sections.

There is a "C" type lug beneath the diamond tiered sections and the snake bracelet end pieces are inserted into the "C" shaped lugs, making it a little difficult to open the watch case. See photos:

The new ad is from Lancaster Daily Intelligencer Journal, Lancaster, PN.,  Oct. 4, 1938.

The stepped sections on your watch are different (larger)  than the advert. The mono-lug is clearly visible in the illustration, but not on on the subject watch. The stepped sections cover it completely, and even when the watch is turned over, you can just make it out, but it isn't clear how the bracelet is attached. Is it a clip?

Bulova Pandora looks to be correct. I'll update the watch entry.
