    This was sitting in the jewelry case at Salvation army. Just loved the look and design and it was only six bucks ! (with my personal discount). It's made by an electronics company in Tokyo Japan called "Aimor". There isn't much about them other than it was founded in 1962. This little travel alarm clock radio combo is marked #103 and was made in 1965. The radio runs on a nine volt battery while the clock is a wind up mechanism with a little bell alarm. The clock works fine and the radio powers on with just "hiss" it doesn't pick up any stations in either band. Maybe outside but not inside. I haven't tried it outside yet. There is also an ear phone plug on the side. A few nicks in the exterior of the case which is metal under the leather. The gold label stamped on the inside reads: "Genuine Leather Case Made in Japan Brit. Pat. 991265 Reg. Des. No. 911085 . I don't know about the leather part. Seems like very thin vinyl to me. The interior has a salmon colored moire fabric which is protected by a clear plastic liner. Very 60's chic ! -Mike-

      Lol.....Great Collectors think alike!!

      I had one just like this. Make sure you try all the buttons as mine did not work till I push the bottom button to one side. It only worked on either Auto//or manual but which ever it was.....I would have thought it was the other.

      Mine had a Red Silk lining with the inside plastic over it -- it was in Mint shape -- and Gold stamped on the inside the same I think. Sadly, I do not have it no more....

      We sure do :) This one is very nice too.....I haven't checked it really well. I did wind the clock which is fine. Maybe the battery is too weak. I'll have to replace it and then try it. Don't have any spare nine volts laying around. I guess this interior may be more of a salmon color. It has a wavy pattern in the fabric. I think this might be a newer model since there are some I've seen that say "Solid State" in the middle without the AM FM switch but still carry the same model number 103.

      Solid State was on Radio in the late 1960's I believe....I think
