Working 1980s Olympia Traveller de Luxe Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Original Cobalt Blue -Made in Yugoslavia
Working Olympia Traveller de Luxe vintage, manual portable typewriter in London (U.K.)
This model was manufactured in the 1980s. The country of manufacturing was Yugoslavia.
In the 1970s, the Yugoslavian typewriter manufacturer UNIS started manufacturing Olympia Traveller typewriters, which originally were made in Western Germany.
Despite being approximately forty years old, the Olympia Traveller de Luxe works well! The comfortable keys are responsive and bouncy resulting in a very satisfying typing experience. All the mechanisms work as intended and the keys function without sticking. This sturdy typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can start typing as soon as you get it. Also comes with the original case which has a comfortable handle.
The overall condition is very good. Minor signs of age and use are present. Please note that the case has been reconditioned.
The Olympia is designed to use a ribbon of two colours at a time. It has also four touch control positions, so the key action can be adjusted for the typist touch preferences to achieve a satisfying typing experience.
The typewriter is relatively small and portable in size and therefore would be suitable if you are planning to travel with it. The Olympia Traveller de Luxe 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 this original cobalt blue typewriter, 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.
