    In the mid 80s Hoya started to produce a limited edition range of crystal items, all of which were hand finished. They were all designed by their highly regarded in-house designers, and were very expensive when issued.

    This is the only clock I have seen from the range, although that doesn't mean it was the only one issued. It is a large piece measuring about 21cm high, and very weighty at a bit under two kilos.

    The photos don't show well the exceptional big cat on the top of the clock (panther? leopard?); it is a beautiful modeling and the satin effect really shows the musculature and posture of it. The remainder of the clock is highly polished.

    It came in it's original box still with original battery for the Japanese made quartz movement.

      Love that sinuous panther on the top Karen... Reminds me of my "Panthères De Cartier" Vase I posted ages ago. :)

      Fantastic. I didn't see the panther straight away. He has a bit of an Art Deco look to him.

      This is a neat piece. I take it the clock works on this one? It's funny how we all end up finding like things for a time. (scuze the pun haha) Right now, owls keep coming my way!

      I agree on the art deco style Fran. Thanks for the love.

      Ta Malkey, it's a time panther!
    12. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      I am finding lots of clocks Sue, I am really feeling time ticking away........
      I don't know if it works yet. Do you think the 30 year old battery will do the job, or will I have to lash out on a new one??!!
    13. fortapache fortapache, 4 years ago
      I see the panther. Very cool.
    14. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
