I don't think you'll get a positive ID because it appears to be an aftermarket case. Jewelers would either buy a used Hamilton or a lower-end gold filled model and recase the movement in a custom made precious metal and diamond case and resell it. This was such a common practice that Hamilton actively tried to prevent this and warned their authorized dealers not to facilitate it. So, it's not a factory original Hamilton model, but it's still a good quality watch in a nice solid gold and diamond case.
Real men wear small watches.

Thank you for your response Afire..... Is there a way to get an approximate production date from looking at the movement. I have seen a couple of the movements marked with the 75, but none of the listings I saw had a production date.
