Working UNIS TBM De Luxe vintage, manual portable typewriter in London (U.K.) This model was manufactured in the mid 1980s. The country of manufacturing is Yugoslavia.

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.
In the 1970s, the Yugoslavian typewriter manufacturer UNIS started manufacturing colourful Olympia Traveller De Luxe typewriters, which originally were made in Western Germany. It is worthy to note that the design of the UNIS TBM De Luxe bears a great resemblance to the Olympia Traveller De Luxe.
The typewriter is relatively small and portable in size and therefore would be suitable if you are planning to travel with it. The UNIS TBM 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 coral 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.
