Antique Clocks/Amyral Fab Looping .... what?



Amyral Fab Looping 7 R
I have an old travel alarm clock. I got it as one of the only items to remember my grandmother by.

I'd like to know how old it is, who made it... anything you can tell me about it. I'm not interested in price, just history.

It says:

Fab Looping
7 Rubis

On the back it is stamped with the number 981711.

The face is a deep black, with glow in the dark numbers. The numbers have gold inlay or some sort of gold colored metallic surrounging them. Each minute and hour mark is also a gold metallic color. Each hand is gold colored with a glow in the dark inlay, except the alarm hand which is not glow in the dark.

It says

T Swiss T    directly underneath the 6.

I've uploaded the best image I have of it at the moment.

What can you tell me about it?

Thank you!

Comment - On a scale of 1-10, I would give Mr. Saunders a 15 on each category. His responses were clear, addressed my questions and concerns in a way that even I could understand, and even sent a picture. He explained what I had and how to resolve the issue. I was amazed at how quickly he replied to each on my e mails. He shouldn't get a gold star, he should get a whole box of them!!! Thank you Mr. Saunders, I will keep you on my e-mail "speed dial". Comment - Ken answered my question regarding how to adjust the proper striking of the hammers on my Grandfather clock within a few minutes of my sending the question to him. He answered my follow-up question the next morning. I would rate him higher if there was a number larger than ten in the selection box. Thanks again Ken Comment - I RECEIVED AN ANSWER WITHIN AN HOUR.OUTSTANDING SERVICE.YOUR RATING SHOULD BE HIGHER THAN 10. Comment - This Man is Fantastic...there is no Scale for a him...if there was...He'd beat the top of Smile....I could never ask for more ....this Man is his Score.... Comment - It's happening!! The clock has run for about 8 hours...I appreciate your quick response and clarity of directions. Thanks so much ! Kenneth really knows his stuff, he has the knowledge about where you can buy replacement parts and where to get repair service or do it yourself. I think I can fix it myself and receive the full value of my clock. He even sent me pictures of clocks like mine sold online so I could get a good idea of the value. Thank you Kenneth for responding so fast and making me feel so confident in repairing my own clock. I vote Kenneth Volunteer of the Year.
