Additional Information

Watch is 6" including wrist band.  Slight water damage indicated by staining.  Model appears to be "Nancy".  Runs and keeps time perfectly.  Thanks to all of the quick input clarifying these details.  I joined principally to add the 4AB movement to your database, as I could not find it through search and thought it might be of value to other site users.

Cute little thing it is. Nancy is advertised as having diamonds and doesn't mention two tone case as this appears white and yellow in the photos. I would be inclined to give a couple ticks for a Nancy ID.

I've looked, and so far I have to say Unknown also... It does look very familiar, though.

So a low SN 4AB movement (not in our movement database yet), with Omega and am I seeing Roman Numerals etched on dial side of movement  block?....matching the two last digits of the case SN???

If so, this strongly suggests movement is original to case, and we have 1930 mvnt in a matched case with case SN starting with a 1, and Bulova Quality case signature.

This looks to be a 1931 Bulova Jeanette based on this 1932 ad.  The ad does not indicate whether two tone but matches the case and the dial does in fact has an engraved center dial if you look at the photos carefully. 

1931 Jeanette
