From a 1952 ad in Vintage Bulova Adverts

Five year difference in ad vs watch date but could be a 1952 Miss America

Found a period ad from 1956 confirming model name closer to 1957

Welcome to myBulova and thank you for sharing your grandmother's watch with us.  What a wonderful heirloom for you to have.  It is wonderful you are getting it service so you can enjoy wearing it.  I am assuming it has an L7 on the case.

JimDon, I think you hit the nail on the head. This watch has been in the Unknown bin for almost 10 years, Well Done.
