typecasts and typewriter reviews
I agree! I have several Olympias and they are my favorite typers, along with my Lettera 32. All just begging to be used!
That's the trouble with having too many, they don't get used as deserved.
The numbers inside the caseback refer to the case itself and the material it's made of. It's the serial number that will give a more accurate age of the watch, but you've already narrowed it down, from memory. I'm glad you got it back and I hope it running accurately. Should last you another hundred years. Nice.And I agree about the SM3. Great to type on, but I'm no huge fan of carriage shift.
Thanks for the info - I was wondering what the numbers referred to. Yes you recall correctly that I'd traced it back to my birth year.
I get the feeling with carriage shifts that I'm never too far from breaking something. Basket shifts just seem somehow sturdier. Olympia sure a make a fine looking machine though
My problem with carriage shift is that it's so fatiguing. I had to stop using the K2 and SM7 in November.
It's great that your Omega is ticking again, I think mine is beyond repair.
I'm sorry to hear that. I must have missed that post. My watchmaker gave up on my Lucien Piccard automatic even though he did get it working again, he wasn't satisfied it would keep running long enough to charge me. I'm still able to use it though.
Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
