The butec 8000 is a manual typewriter produced by Nakajima in Japan, but distributed exclusively in Switzerland by Butec Ltd. (Butec AG, Butec SA). I will be publishing an article on the Butec AG shortly.
Same model, spotted on this very TWDB, as Nakajima 8000 and Swintec 1200.
Update Jan 9, 2018: The article was published in a recent issue of Historische Bürowelt.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Butec (Nakajima) 8000 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Butec (Nakajima) Serial Number page and the Butec (Nakajima) 8000 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
