Typewriter TECHS WHERE QUALITY RESTORATION IS OUR STANDARD

Stacks Image 1344
The designer of the Hermes was Paillard, a company which initially started with watch movements and music box mechanisms. They are known to this day as one of the finest music box makers. The company spent years researching how they could improve the current typewriter design.  Hermes started out with the 2000 model which was more of a conventional typewriter though very solid and reliable. After dissecting many of the current models, they debuted the Hermes 3000. The Hermes 3000 has a compact design, ultra low profile and built-in carrying case. Major innovations included the world's first lightning margins (visible in front of the sheet of paper), automatic tabulator, touch regulator, grouping of all of the service keys, and integrated base plate and cover to facilitate handling and carrying.

The Hermes 3000 is regarded by many to be one of the finest portable typewriters in the world, the most advanced manual made and also one of the most sought after due to its reliability and clarity of type. Many writers often preferred the Hermes typewriters to others because of the quality pages they produce.  Larry McMurty, the Pulitzer prize winning author for Lonesome Dove and co-writer for the adaptive screen play Broke Back Mountain, even thanked his Hermes typewriter during his golden globe acceptance speech. “Most heartfelt, I thank my typewriter.  My typewriter is a Hermes 3000, surely one of the noblest instruments of European genius.”

The Hermes Baby was introduced next and was considered to be the IPAD of its time. The Swiss have long been revered for their precision and attention to detail and all the Hermes typewriters live up to that reputation. The attention to detail, fit and finish of these typewriters are unmatched. Using a variety of metals in construction, the Rocket is still one of the lightest portable around. The Hermes Baby/Rocket series were introduced in 1935 and were an instant success. The Rocket debuted with minor cosmetic changes from the Baby, such as a color change from grey to sea foam green, a more durable construction with a better handle and locking mechanism as well as enlarged keys making it more user friendly. The lightweight, versatile, and portable Baby and Rocket with their easy to set margins and simple ribbon changing are used by many of the most famous and prolific writers of our time.
