Special Clock Stamps

Swiss Postal Service has issued two new stamps that have postage values of 100 and 130 CHF named "Special Clock Stamps" on the 30th of September 2005. The stamps are a part of the Swiss Post "Swiss Product series" and depict wristwatches that are on display at the International Watchmaking Museum in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. As most of you know a clock is a compact machine that records the earth's rotation in real time; and the Swiss have a reputation of being one of the best clock makers in the world. In fact, Swiss mechanical clock makers in the Jura region excelled at making the world's most sophisticated pocket watches. Today there are many clock making companies in the wristwatch market. You can see their products at the Basel World watch and jewelry fair.

"Special Clock Stamps" can be purchased as a set of 2, Set of blocks, Collection sheet, or FDC's. The size of each stamp is 33mm x 28mm with a Perforation size of 13 1/2 x 13 1/4. The stamps will be printed by Carter Security Printing, La Loupe, France using the Offset 4-Color Printing process with 110 gram per meter square white brightener stamp paper and mat gummed.
