A very nice Jeanne. And look at the movement! I have never seen a 5AP with this bridge configuration. Very special!

There is also the Bulova Joan that ran from 1925 to 1927 that is also a match.

I'm inclined to Jeanne on this one. The engraving on Joan does not appear to include the small flower in the center of each side.

This watch changed name a few times so I did a double check. In several ads up to May 17 1924 it is called the 5714. Then in an ad of December 1924 it gets for the first time a name: the Jeanne. In an ad of September 1925 it is still Jeanne but then it changes to Joan in an ad of December 1925. Then we have an ad of 27 August 1927 where it is called Jola, but then it changes back to Joan on 17 December 1927. Since the subject watch is from 1926, I go for Joan.
