The Olympia factory in West Germany had an excellent reputation for producing top-quality typewriters.  The  Splendid 33 is no exception.  With a design heritage going back to 1955, when the original SF was first produced, the first model spawned a whole series of lightweight but extremely durable typewriters.  These became the 'Splendid' series, consisting of a basic model (the 33), standard model (66) and DeLuxe which had a different outer casing.  The same basic design was developed further to become the Traveller from 1969 onwards.

The machine boasts a 44-character keyboard and fold-up paper rest.  A handy feature is the margin release key which also doubles as a typebar anti-clash device.  Clash two typebars and when you press the key, they pop back down again.  You will never have to get inky fingers ever again by putting them into the segment !  Every detail of these machines has been carefully thought out to make life as convenient as possible for the user.   This typewriter takes a readily-available ribbon which is still in current production.  If you are looking for a quality typewriter that will take more than just occasional use when necessary, this would be the one to have.
