Working 1969 Olympia Traveller De Luxe Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Western Germany
Working Olympia Traveller de Luxe vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was manufactured in 1969. Despite being fifty years old, this German made machine works very 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 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. Please note the top case is in slightly worn our condition and the bell does not provide a very strong sound.
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 de Luxe 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.
