Working 1970s Olympia Traveller Typewriter -Schreibmaschine – New Ribbon, Case – QWERTZ (German key layout)
Working Olympia Traveller vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was manufactured in the 1970s.
The comfortable keys are responsive and bouncy resulting in a very satisfying typing experience. All mechanisms, apart of the Caps Lock key which is not functional, work as intended and the keys function without sticking. This sturdy typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it, without any hassle. Also comes with the original case which has a comfortable handle.
The overall condition is good. Minor signs of age and use are present.
The typewriter is equipped with a QWERTZ key layout for typing in the German language.
The typewriter is relatively small and portable in size and therefore would be suitable if you are planning to travel. The retro Olympia would also be a starting point for a typist with little or no experience of using typewriters. Due to the style and the aesthetics of the Olympia Traveller, it can be a great gift or can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
