Before starting, let me thank everyone for providing this terrific resource. I've learned quite a bit reading through the various posts here.
I'm hoping the regulars here can help me get my head around what the original cost of a particular 992B would have been when it was first introduced. You could formulate the question several ways, but the formulation I'm most interested in would be:
"What combination of case and dial would be the least expensive 992B a railroader could buy in 1941?"
I've seen various posts here that show catalog prices of various configurations, but (if it exists) I haven't stumbled across a post that shows the relative prices of cases and dials.
I would appreciate any help you can offer.
The closest we might come is this 1941 advertisement posted below wherein the price of a 992B is shown at $66.00 with the buyer's choice of three cases and two dials. In later years the Stainless-Steel Case 15 and the Rolled-Gold-Plate Case 16 were both quoted at less than any of the then available Gold-Filled cases but I do not recall of differing prices for dial choices on new Hamilton 992B Railway Special Watches.
Perhaps someone else will have more extensive information.

Lindell, thanks. That's exactly what I was looking for.
