Olympus 35-S II / Tower 10 Branded 35mm Rangefinder Film Camera
from about 1959
Super Clean - Tested - Excellent Condition

One Owner!

What a neat camera from Olympus Camera of Tokyo -
It's rather hard to find these this nice.

The Tower brand was sold by Sears, Roebuck & Company in the US in
their stores and in their catalogs.

It features a fast f2.8, E. Zuiko 4.8cm (48mm) lens and the original
Olympus metal lens cap.

It's been inspected, cleaned, and tested. The shutter sounds accurate
against my Nicca S-3 on all speeds except "bulb". This is a common
occurrence on these 1950s cameras.

The shutter and aperture blades look excellent and are snappy. The lens glass
looks to be free of any distracting marks - clean, clear and bright.

The film advance is smooth, the shutter cocks, the shutter button fires nicely,
the rewind knob and all other levers work as they should and move freely.

The body is free of dents, dings or other types of damage except
where some "brassing" shows near the film advance lever. Please
check out the detailed pictures of the actual camera you will receive
to best gauge the condition for yourself. I personally rate this
camera as excellent.
The leatherette is clean, tight and complete.

The rangefinder works perfectly (focusses nicely) and is clear and bright. The viewfinder
is bright and clear - super clean too. There are some bits of dust visible but they
do not interfere with your view.

This lovely camera comes from a smoke and pet free home and will
be mailed very quickly - often the same day!

Does your shop offer combined shipping?

Yes and always! Just let us know and we'll work something out. No need to pay for shipping more than once.

Does your shop accept returns?

Yes but with some minor exceptions. If it was a custom made item we do not accept returns. Good communication before the sale will eliminate returns. Part two... we will gladly accept a returned item (within 14 days) as long as it is returned to us in the same condition as when we sent it to you.

Always! Carol and I take great care (and pride) in packaging your purchase. We always are mindful of being "green" but often times green doesn't protect your package properly.

Valuable items will always have insurance added.
