I am excited to have been given this razor yesterday by my younger brother (who is obviously not into wet shaving) for an upcoming birthday.
It is in good condition except for a small crack in the tube just under the top ring.......no train smash,It seems to have been a fault with this model. I'll just have to be careful. According to the serial No. C206705 it was manufactured in 1912. The underside of the case has a signature "T M Wessels and the date Sept 1918 engraved. I attach a couple of pics. for you all to drool over?
All in all a nice addition to my Gillette collection.
1948 Flat bottom Tech (Birth Year Razor)
1960's British tech aluminium handle
1960,s British slim twist white handle TTO
1970's to 80's British Minora O/C Tech

Congrat's on the single ring! I've got one in good condition, but found the top half of the thread stripped. So it pops off halfway through a shave... Lovely piece of history there.
