Working Olympia Traveller de Luxe S Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Yugoslavia
Working Olympia Traveller de Luxe S vintage, manual portable typewriter in London (U.K.)
This model was manufactured in the 1970s. The country of manufacturing was Yugoslavia.
Despite being approximately forty five years old, this originally West German model works well, apart of the caps lock! 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 good. Please note the Caps Lock does not stay on when pressed. But the Shift Lock works perfectly well and the typist will be able to type in upper case with the Shift Lock. Minor signs of age and use are present.
In the 1970s, the Yugoslavian typewriter manufacturer UNIS started manufacturing Olympia Traveller de Luxe typewriters, which originally were made in Western Germany.
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. It appeals to all generations.
