This wonderful and iconic Hermes Media 3 typewriter was made in Switzerland in 1962 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 France 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 slightly larger "Pica" sized type face giving you 10 letters to the inch. 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, Touch Regulator and paper rests.
We have given it a clean, professional service, adjusted and tested it and fitted a new top quality American made ribbon on metal spools so its all ready for you to start typing on.
It is in a good general condition but does have some marks and signs of paint touchup at some earlier stage mainly low down on the corners and on the lower section of the ribbon cover ( see images ). It also has some marks and small dents to the metal aluminium casing 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 cm by 33 cm by 14 cm high.
Group 9 typewriter ribbons can be purchased from us when required which will just drop in or you can purchase other ribbon colour options on Universal spools and rewind onto the metal spools already in the machine. Our ribbons are priced from £6.95 including postage in the UK and come is plain black or two tone red and black or we have a range of other colour options on Universal spools.
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. The case is also in a 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.
