Beautiful desk typewriter. Light enough to be comfortable to use. The sheet metal cover conceals a not too modern typewriter. Is like an old typewriter with new art nouveau clothes.
Of course, inside that curvaceous body I bet its CX is lower than its less aerodynamic predecessors, but no one ever put a typewriter to the test in a wind tunnel!
