Tony,
It appears to be a Cameron page 805 in the book.
Low book is $185.00 and High book is $350.00. I can not be sure but it looks like a re-done dial This guy usually knows what he has and I suspect did not call it by name hoping for high book or better.

That's a "Dorsey" model. Offered from 1936 to 1938. It is very scarce.

Is the dial on this watch correct or is this a dial that has been redone?

The dial has been re-finished.

The clue is the subseconds chapter... it should have a track with 60 hash marks and numerals at the 60, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 second positions.

The good news is that any competent dial refinisher could restore it to the correct appearance.

This is EXACTLY why I am so excited that Bryan is participating in this forum. Few individuals know more about Hamilton wrist watches.
