Great paint job and a nice Seiko diver too. 6309, I think, but I'm not well versed in Seiko models.
Thank you.Yes - 6309 - beautifully simple and simply beautiful :)
Nice paint! I may be a little biased, however, by the fact that green and gold are the team colors of the university where I work. Go Blazers! http://www.uabsports.com
Thank you! Technically it is a definite yellow but I'm sure it would look very nice in that Blazers' gold.Also it crossed my mind - since this typewriter was made in Holland - to put some certain green leaf ;) stickers on both sides... :D
Those are also the colors of John Deere tractors. Not long ago on eBay there was a "John Deere" repainted Smith-Corona -- green and yellow, with the Deere logo. I think no one wanted it! But your Royalite is beautiful.
Thank you. I wasn't aware of the John Deere connection :)
Years ago I had a very strange typewriter dream that involved a whole array of typewriters painted in John Deere colours, as Mr Polt pointed out these represent. A bit of a dream come true for me I suppose, haha!
If only it was not a horror dream... :) Ha! Now I am a sort of tractor specialist - whenever I see one in these colours in an American movie I knowingly point at it and say: "That's a John Deere!". Things you learn on Typosphere...
All typewriter dreams are nightmares because you never end up with a single one you saw in the dream. XD...I think your comment here is one of my favourites of all typosphere time. I just love it. Have fun Deerespotting. ;)
Definite improvement on the royalite's look. Rather than a $20machine, it now looks like a$100 machine
