The general relativistic gravitomagnetic clock effect, in its simplest form, consists of the non-vanishing difference in the orbital periods of two counter-orbiting objects moving in opposite directions along circular orbits lying in the equatorial plane of a central rotating source. We briefly review both the theoretical and observational aspects of such an intriguing consequence of Einstein's theory of gravitation.
