Hi 1willwander, welcome to mybulova! Beautiful watch. 14K gold case with 2 diamonds; one would think it would be an easy ID. Alas, I come up empty on a name for her.

I will keep looking, but for now I stand at "unknown".

Welcome to mybulova!  This is a very pretty watch.  I looked through the ads and did not find a match.

Unknown for now.

in any case, watches will be made in 1953 according to the L3 case markings, movement obviously will not 340, but the attached photo will not read it

even though I thought I saw these watches somewhere, I did not find a relevant advert

Unknown for me

I'm not sure I find a match either. I did update the year to 1953 per the L3 date code.

5AD movement? It is stamped 'USA' so that would make sense, not many of these tiny movts were US made. the 5AD is based on the Bulova 5AH, both USA made. 

Otherwise, inknown for now.
