197X Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 12-GT Serial # GT 2510468 197X Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 12-GT typewriter, Serial # GT 2510468 Jack B's 197X Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 12-GT typewriter. 2016-07-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 197X Royal (Silver-Seiko) Apollo 12-GT Serial # GT 2510468 This plastic electric, though very fun and interesting looking, is just not for me. Although I love that the carriage is hinged and tilts back to shift, that the touch is nice and soft, the quiet motor, and even the tacky 70's colors, I don't think I'll keep this machine for long. It's a little sad, showing the end of Royal's quality typewriter manufacturing era. The shell is entirely plastic and the metal low quality. It doesn't take much to impress me (heck, I'm even impressed by the meager Generation 3000!), this is just not one I'll be keeping.

It is very fun, though!
