Yep I've seen this Unknown for years.  I had one once. Maybe I still do.
Unknown for now.

Possible candiate model identification as the Bulova Chesterfield. This might have been around for a few years, thus the change over in dial style that happened around 1930/1931.

Good effort, but I don't see a match. Ad doesn't show engraving at top and bottom of case at dial, and engraving appears to be right next to crystal instead of offset with a stripe in between, like subject watch. Based on ad, I would agree the Chesterfield is a two tone; just not this one.
