Thanks Jim! i have some nice Hamilton cases to put this in. I will repost when done.Welcome Rick to the NAWCC Forums. You have a great watch to start off with.
The dial is the last signature in this series marked with 8 Adjustments, which means adjusted for 5 positions, Heat, Cold, Isochronism. Equals=8 Total Adjustments.
Your watch was made about 1930, so any case available at the time would be appropriate, check the stickies above under Hamilton Watch Co. threads to see about cases and dates. Your present case is fine,but it is not the case it was sold in...
The Mainliner was a Hamilton case and will have Hamilton stamped inside the the rear cover. These J.Boss cases are always confused with the Mainliner cases, because the Mainliner were made for the 950E and are very scarce. The Hamilton case will also have 2 raised edge ridges around the back edge (Thanks, Terry Hall).
The earlier 992 ARRS had a larger pattern for the 2-tone blocks, (Thanks, Fred Hansen).
Thanks Rob!I would also like to add my welcome to the NAWCC Forum.

As has been said, your watch was almost surely never in a Hamilton case so if you take it out of the case it is in and put it in one it will be obvious to anyone who knows, that it is not in original condition. These watches were sold by Hamilton as movements with dial and hands but not with cases. Obviously the watch is yours so you can obviously re-case it if it makes you happy. If you do re-case it, you should keep the Jas Boss case it is in, along with a note to remind you or your heirs so that when you or your heirs sell it it can be sold in proper original condition. Just a suggestion. I am not trying to be the watch police.
