Hi All,

Here's a fun and interesting Swiss Made "Mentor 4 Jewels" pocket-watch-style alarm travel clock. Runs great and the alarm works fine.

Anyone have any idea when this may have been manufactured?

What great information, Gerald! Thanks for responding. I purchased it at a local Minneapolis-area antique store for $20.00. I really like the dial too, and the hands as well.
