I bought this today. The razor is in very good condition, the gold plating is almost gone but you can't see any brass spots. It looks like a nickel plated razor now. I cleaned and sterilized it.
I have a few questions. Does the case have anything to do with this model or the Gillette in general? Also, which model is it? Norfolk, Somerset or something else?

It is a Short Comb NEW, post-summer-of-'32 (merger).  The names you mentioned refer only to cased sets; by itself the razor is a short comb NEW.  The case seems similar to a 1928 NI Big Fellow case (similar, but not the same).  I don't have enough information to match it to an American Button Company case, either.  It is, in any case (pun), a lovely acquisition.
