1968 Remington Premier Serial # IX266994 1968 Remington Premier typewriter, Serial # IX266994 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1968 Remington Premier typewriter. 2014-08-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1968 Remington Premier Serial # IX266994 The Premier is a classic slight of hand. On first appearance it looks the part of a premier machine with its compact form and elegant lines that are both modern and retro at the same time. However, it only takes a second look to realize that you've been duped and that there's really nothing premier about it.

This model is an absolute bare bones build, and what appears to be a stripped-down version of the Envoy II. Its plastic body creaks and protests while its being used, and although its action is wonderfully light, it's also somewhat vague.

To sum up, the Premier is good from afar, but far from good.
