These are 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. It has its long heavy duty curly handset cord and an electronic microphone has been fitted for perfect sound quality. 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. It will dial out and recieve perfectly and has been set up on a special line simulater and then tested on our own BT land line. I can make a dial label with your information at no exrtra charge.
