Offered is a World Clock by The Royal Geographical Society. Made in 1979, issued 1980 by The Franklin Mint
Crafted in solid brass and mahogany. At the center is a time-zone globe with maps embellished with 24 karat gold.
The movement is a 15-jewel, made by Arthur Imhof S.A. of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
Comes with the original booklet and instructions, which have some creases and discoloration. The original packing slip is also included.
Previously owned by the original purchaser, a Veterinarian who practiced in Forty Fort, PA. Name engraved on the brass nameplate at front, center (most were tagged with owner name).
Runs well, keeps time. The movement is so quite, we could not hear it running. Aesthetically, the clock is in very good condition with a tiny nick or two on the base and a tiny spot of tarnish on the bezel that surrounds the globe. Need more photos? ask and we'll be happy to supply them. One of he best examples of this clock we have seen.

Will be packed securely and shipped very carefully.
