 No luck whatsover.  It is fairly easy to spot with the lugs expanding outward while most ladies of this size taper.  I looked thru it twice and did a google image search with no luck.   Next to start looking at Newspapers online.

Wonderful advert match. A lovely 1956 Bulova Dolly Madison 'J' it is. I find alot of ladies don't like the cord bands, but I do, probably because I'm a guy :-) 

I find the black cord really sets off the yellow gold case.
