Interesting printed dial... Looks a bit like an Academy Award print, but we're too late for an L5 watch.

Watch is shown here in a 1955 advert, but the listing seems all wrong. It mentions a ladies 'Automatic' 17 jewelled movement, which doesn't match the subject watch, and I hightly doubt an automatic movemet could be made this small.(could be wroing about that). No name mentioned.

Although I think the adverts might be mixed up as this advert looks to ID the subject watch as a Dolly Madison (top row, second from right)

Another match for the Dolly Madison "H" variant. Again no color, but the 1955 Price guide has the "H" listed as yellow,
