It is indeed the "UU" case. If you want an original dial ihave a spare I'd part with but I think you would also need to change the hands to BI or PI's.

Am I seeing a square date symbol (1946) in the movement picture?  Dave states A9 date code in root record.

I still believe Dr Ranfft made a mistake on his start date of 1936 for 7AK, and I have not seen one presented in a case which appears original pre-1945.  Rev Rob, any guesstimate on start date for the ETA 735?  In another of Dr's records, he has start date for another 7AH based on ETA 735 w/ start date of 1928.
