Hello Jakub, welcome to myBulova, this certainly is a beautiful watch. I'd  say it still has the original bracelet, it appears to have been very well cared for.

While the quality of the ad is almost impossible to recognize, I think your watch is a La Petite H. The "E" variant had 4 diamonds, the "I" has 12. Both appear in quite a few ads. The copy on this ad states 6 diamonds and what I can see of the ad seems to match.

Panel, I realize this is a bit sketchy but I would give this a two tick tentative ID as La Petite "H"

I would agree with Geoff, no advert I had found, but the watch has character typical of La Petite

THANX FOR HELP

LOOKS LIKE BULOVA WENT ALPHABETICALLY IN VARIANTS ACCORDING TO THE NUMBER OF DIAMONDS

A,B,C - 2 DIAMONDS EACH D,E,F,G - 4   "H" - 6  AND I,J -12

A- 1955 AND J- 1957

LOOKS LIKE "H" FROM 1956 IS THE ONLY ONE WITH 6 DIAMONDS FROM LA PETITE SERIES
