Additional Information

I thought I had added this 1959 LaPetite to my watches but noticed it wasn't there. Anyway, thought I would add this in. I'm pretty sure this is a LaPetite. It has a nice 5AD 23j movement with 6 adj.

Certainly is a 1959 Bulova La Petite "D", based on a yellow gold case. Whilst the "C" is listed as "white" I wasn't able to find any reference to the two-tone nature, thus believe the case body color is the determining factor.

Good match to the La Petite 'D'

I agree with La Petite "D" as well.  Here is a line book from the 1958-59 BAWD0136.  It was a very popular model.

1959 Bulova La Petite "D" looks to be a good match.
