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.
