Equator puzzle

A clever, metal, tile-sliding puzzle.

This all-metal puzzle consists of three intersecting bands of 12 tiles (many are shared... there are 30 in total) that can be slid around the globe.
Time hasn't done my copy of this puzzle any favours. It's nearly impossible to play with. Mixing it up for the photograph took a real effort!
This puzzle must be distinguished from the Mozaika. Unlike the Mozaika, the eight triangular pieces do not move.

This puzzle is mentioned in Cubic Circular Issue #2 from 1982 which gives an upper bound of the year it was presented.
Diameter: 70 mm
