Seller: euroboy01 (3,916) 99.4%, Location: FIFE, Ships to: GB, Item: 201728909231 THIS ITEM COMES IN A USED AND REASONABLE CONDITION...... I ONLY POST TO ADDRESSES REGISTERED ON THE BUYER'S PAYPAL ACCOUNT ONLY, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR DETAILS ARE CORRECT. JAZ 70 COMMEMORATIVE CLOCK. THE PLASTIC ALARM KNOB HAS SNAPPED OF AND IS NOT INCLUDED, HOWEVER THE CLOCK MOVEMENTS WORK FINE AND IT KEEPS TIME AS NORMAL ACCORDING TO BATTERY STRENGTH, THE ALARM BEEPS FINE BATTERY TYPE: 1 x AA ( Not Included ) SIZE: HEIGHT 6.5 INCHES TALL AND 5.5 INCHES ACROSS AT THE BASE AND 4 INCHES ACROSS AT THE TOP APPROX. MATERIAL: BAKELITE STYLE MATERIAL WITH GLASS FRONT. GLOW IN THE DARK HOUR AND MINUTE HANDS. NO PACKAGING OR INSTRUCTIONS. IN 1990 THE CURRENT MANUFACTURER OF JAZ TIMEPIECES ISSUED A CLOCK TO COMMEMORATE JAZ'S 70 YEARS OF EXISTENCE - FROM 1920 TO 1990. THIS PARTICULAR CLOCK IS EASILY RECOGNISABLE BY THE NUMBER "70" PRINTED ON THE DIAL IN A SMALL RECTANGLE AND THE BRAND NAME JAZ UNDER THE 12 WITH THE BIRD'S TAIL IN A DOWNWARD POSITION. THE OVERALL STYLING IS VERY "ART DECO" WITH HONEYCOMB HANDS, A 'SKYSCRAPER' STYLING, RECTANGULAR BRASS DECORATIONS ON THE FRONT AND THE ELONGATED DIAL FACE. THE MOVEMENT IS A QUARTZ OPERATED ON A SMALL BATTERY. QUARTZ MOVEMENTS WERE NOT INCORPORATED INTO CLOCKS UNTIL THE 1970'S AND BASICALLY MEANT THE END OF MECHANICAL MOVEMENTS. IN COMPARISON TO ITS PREDECESSORS, THIS CLOCK IS RELATIVELY VERY LIGHT IN WEIGHT. THE CASING OF THE CLOCK IS REMINISCENT OF JAZ' VERSION OF THE BAKELITE PLASTIC SO EXTENSIVELY USED IN THE 1920'S AND 30'S, WHICH THEY CALLED 'JAZLITE'. ALTHOUGH IT IS A RELATIVELY RECENT ISSUE, IT HAS BECOME OVER THE PAST DECADE A VERY COLLECTIBLE PIECE, HOWEVER IT SHOULD NOT BE CONFUSED WITH JAZ BAKELITE CASED CLOCKS MANUFACTURED IN THE 20'S AND 30'S.
