Not La Petite B, nor G (1959 ads) nor D (1958 ad) nor La Petite I from 1959 ad.  Looks kinda like Roxanne's little sister.   I'm individually searching ads from 1950 thru 1959 for ad---case looks similar to 1962 ad for La Petite K but 23 jewels.

 Petite K has twisted lugs so can rule that one out

* edit: Scratch that, too many Jewels and a Diamond or 2 short.
