This seems to be much like earlier Juwel models, to judge from photos, but with a different shell.

Unlike others who have created Juwel galleries, I don't think this is a bad typewriter. It's solidly made, fairly snappy, and has a quiet, purring carriage return.

This one has a strange keyboard: QWERTY but with characters for French and Italian. You have to shift to get numerals and the period.
