The first Olivetti typewriter, designed by Camillo Olivetti and first introduced in 1911.
One of the most complicated typewriter mechanics enclosed in a very stylish chassis.
The mechanics on this machine is 100% original, while i had to repaint because the original paint and decals were heavily worn.
In general, i prefer this "mushroom-like" keyboard, like those you can find on Smith Premier, Merz, and Royal 1-5 typewriters.. and on this machine the touch is just great.
