This wonderful and iconic Hermes Media 3 typewriter was made in Switzerland in 1965 and comes in the standard Hermes pastel green colour with mint green keys ,space bar and carriage knobs .Hermes typewriters were designed and made in Switzerland by Paillard before production moved to Germany and then to Brazil . They have a good reputation as wonderfully engineered and made machines , as you would expect from the Swiss .This one is in full working order , has a standard "Elite " sized font giving you 12 letters to the inch and types very well . The Media 3 is basically the same as the Hermes 3000 with the same styling and design but just doesn't have a Tabulator function and Touch Regulator.
We have given it a clean ,service, adjusted and tested it and fitted a new ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on .
It is in an extremely good general condition with just a couple of very small marks mainly at the left hand lower section of the carriage , on the front at the left and on the underneath . It comes with a copy of the original instruction booklet showing all its features and giving tips such as changing the ribbon and setting the margins . The body of the typewriter measures 32 cms by 33 cms by 14 cms high .
Group 9 typewriter ribbons can be purchased from many online suppliers or we can supply you with new ribbons when required . They generally cost around £4.95 including postage . However a ribbon will last you a long time . To give you an idea , in an office environment with someone using a typewriter professionally a ribbon would last them around 3 months.
This Hermes Media 3 comes with a carry case lid which clips down over the typewriter and provides you with a handle to carry it around . On the inside of the lid is a metal frame for your paperwork and the two original Hermes brushes. The case is also in a very good condition with just a few small marks in places.
This is a lovely and well made Hermes typewriter in a great colour and working condition .
