My father, who passed 5 years ago, bought this for his mother.  I'm trying to identify it.  These are the best images I have.  A vintage watch guy in our area was pretty confident the bevel was a Bulova.  I understand that this is very difficult with no clear photo of the face or back.  I have combed thousands of watch photos online trying to find the exact detail on the sides.  It would mean a great deal to me if I could at least get better images or some sort of identification of this watch.  When he shared stories about the watch he said he bought it with his first paycheck which would have been in the 60's.  After much searching I'm wondering if he meant his first REAL paycheck which would have been in 1974.  I know this is a long shot and I thank you for any help and your time.

Hello Swalton3, I wonder if you still have the watch? If so it would be nice to get a bit clearer photo. It is very difficult to see the finer details needed to accurately identify this little gem.

If I were to have a guess based on what I can see in the photos, I'd say it looks like the La Petite 'EB". Advert is from 1966.

Based on available photos, La Petite EB is a reasonable guess.

La Petite- Just a guess. Impossible to say for sure without a closer pic.
