 The dial seems incorrect for the case.

Thanx Ellierose !  TR, according to the archives, the dial looks like a 1943 and the case looks 1944.

So I guess what I have is a 1943.5 !!!   Mid year model...... LoL !!!

I believe Jeff is referring to the Minutes track which seems to not quite follow the bezel lines, could be an optical illusion.

Right after a closer look i see what you mean,but the dial still wouldn't be from an arnold it could be from a different watch that just happened to fit...
