These a great telephones and very well made as you would expect from when manufactured by the Swiss. The dials are as smooth as silk and every thing about this model is quality. I have always tried to get these for my web site but they are few and far between in perfect condition as this one is. I have fitted a double length handset cord and an electronic microphone. The advantage of this telephone is a hook on the bottom to allow the handset to be hung when calling for someone else in the house to take the call.
