I agree, the Dial looks like the 'VIVIAN' from the 1926 ad and the Triangle Date stamp would confirm. The Case design matches also but the engraving details do not (?)

The Dial detailing on this Watch is fabulous!

1927 Debutante isn't a match to subject watch either, but closer.

As has been remarked on by myself in other watch threads, the case engraving and even the dials are different for solid gold and filled cases, as this helps to visually identify between such, making it hard to sell a solid gold model as plated, thus losing revenue.

Could be the Vivian, very similar dial design and case shape. The only definite difference is the engraving on the case.
