Europa Folding Travel Alarm Clock In Royal Blue
Vintage Europa Folding Travel Alarm Clock In Royal Blue
This is a nice, working, mechanical Vintage Europa Folding Travel Alarm Clock In Royal Blue, and in its original box. Its hard surfaces are covered on both the top and base with royal blue leatherette.
The clock has brass effect surrounds with brass accents, black hands and black numerals. Both the clock and alarm are in good working order. It is easily read from a distance and in the dark, as its hands are luminous.
The hard leather covered casing is in very good vintage condition. The brass is slightly discoloured/pitted with surface blemishes, particularly around the face casing and edges of the case.
The 2 jewel clock dates to about the 1970s, and was manufactured by Uhrenfabrik Senden GmbH, in Bavaria, West Germany, whom used the tradename 'Europa.' It would probably require a CLA (clean, lube and adjust) service to guarantee accurate time keeping. There is some slight scuffing on the clock crystal.
I have timed the clock over a 24-hour period and it kept reasonable time (-30 seconds).
Approximate Size when folded:
Case Width, Height, Depth (WHD): 7.5cm x 7.5cm x 3cm
All in all, a beautiful, and useable, collectible travel alarm clock.
