The La Petite line was pretty extensive.  It does look like the ad but the dial it just a tad different with a 9 and 3 on your dial but not in the ad.  The case looks like a match, might be a different variant or a dial replacement.

I mistakely forgot to check the photo posted,  and mistakely used the old photo of my watch before the changes.  I don't have a photo of the watch with the new dial and movement,  only the new dial & movement.  These exchanges were made at the same time as my  watch:    Miss Universe changes. My Labrador has been sick this week and has me exhausted. Sorry.

I also used a little "v" instead of a capital "V" in the case number.

Unable to take new photo since the change.

Thank you for the well wishes for my pup, he is now doing great.  Could you please remove the two (2) photos of the dial and movement.  The ad is incorrect, not my watch. I have re-installed the original dial and movement.

After analysing the newspaper ad, my watch, and another watch posted on ebay (Link removed)  -  I believe this watch to be the:  1962 Le Petite MM.

(XXXXX Active eBay listing removed per site rules XXXXXX - admin) 

Artist's interpretation of dial in this newspaper ad is incorrect/wrong on this model:

  "Le Petite MM".

1.  Red dot, left side:  shows a number "3" to the "left" of the number "6".

2.  Red dot, right side:  numbers "23" is incorrectly drawn for the 23 (jewels).

3.  Blue dots:  addtional dot markings are incorrectly placed on dial.

Addtional notes:

1.  Shape of case is on point;

2.  Diamond count is on point;

3.  Diamond placement is on point;

4.  Jewel count is on point;

5.  14KT Gold is on point.
