Olympia boasts of it's precisely engineered mechanics and the practical design of their typewriter models. This model features revolutionary for it's time, piano keys - meaning the keys depress parallel to the desk, which is very ergonomic.
*TYPEFACE: Pica, 10cpi typeface. The keyboard has a QWERTZ layout. Very special rare keys - to make checkboxes and lists!
*COSMETICS: This typewriter is in excellent condition. There are a few paint scratches on the body - visible in the pictures. The chrome plated metal parts look very good. The colour is a lovely milky white, stunning. Uncommon white finish of the paint.

The typewriter has been disassembled, cleaned, polished and adjusted on feet. It has a new ink ribbon which will type 2.5 million characters before the ink runs dry. Most probably you will not need new ink in the next 10 years or so. Bell works like a charm, carriage advances smoothly.

The keys are very responsive, light to type on, perfect distance between the rows of the keyboard which is ergonomic. This model has something unique - it features a "cushion" effect of it's keyboard - when the key is depressed - it has a slight spring movement which absorbs the pressure. Moreover, for easy writing the keys stay perpendicular to the working surface with every press which is also a very unique feature for this model. Please, note in the photos a margin key is missing, but the typewriter does come with a margin key and is 100% complete!
