1980 Remington 25 Serial # P028055 1980 Remington 25 typewriter, Serial # P028055 Germano Peres's 1980 Remington 25 typewriter. 2022-06-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Germano Peres: 1980 Remington 25 Serial # P028055 This was a gift from my girlfriend's parents and called it "Tatiane" in her honor because she is 100% Brazilian and beauty, like as this Remington. Cames in condition for use but without ribbon, only i cleaned, placed new ribbon and needs an adjust the space bar level. That i going to do when to get the appropiate tool.

Not very known outside South America, with the exception of a few exemplars exported to Mexico the 25, and her little sisters 15 and Ipanema was launched in 1980 and produzed until early 90's were the third generation of a saga begun in 1976 with models 10-20. My researchs was confirmed that was designed by Richard H. Penney in 1969 for Sperry Rand but materialized in Brazil only.

The design and the coolest chocolate-caramel combination it's very attractive a resembles some kind of home-computer, such an Apple II with Commodore 64 colors more on wheigt issues... Heavy Sixer!

The construction is very well and match with all Remington features: ring system spools, the typing feels a bit harder and is VERY loudy, like a shooting if it's fast and types impact with some violence, had to find the mid-point why is very easy to punch the paper. Furthermore, the spacer sounds like a firearm load.

Tabulators are intuitive, but not very precise (stops one space later), the wheel system is some harder to set and when press the TAB key the carriage literally shoot.

Has a Pica Techno 10 CPI, a font apparently taken from Hermes and it was used in all Brazilian-made brands, with the only exception of Olivetti. I love it, but is more easy to find this than a traditional Pica in my country.

Finally the cap completes the coolest design, when closed does not seem that is a typewriter. Haves a very secure lock system.

A tipically 80's Cold-War boy. Brazilian born in exile, with the time i was interested with my homeland, GDR and the Eastern Bloc technologies, but didn't have old enough to live this. I grown up with computers and never had more than marginal contact with typewriters in my childhood, my passion was growing along with mine Ostalgie and started my collection sometime ago when withdrew my father's older Erika from its long letargy.

Since 2023 i'm a Right student, in path to be a lawyer and that re-inforces my passion with typeriters. I prefer the 80's portable models.

I will try to get information about the world of Brazilian typewriters, mostly not known outside South America.
