1972 Red 746 + Monitel Call Calibrater
Please read the whole listing.
A fabulous 1972 GPO 746 telephone, in great condition and one that has been fully renovated and is ready to plug in and use into your telephone socket. Supplied with a legendary colour matched Monitel call timer/ charge indicator base station and 1991charge card. Wow!
You will not see many of these still working. **
Two beautiful items.
We have been searching for a working Monitel for a long time and at last we have found one.
The Monitel telephone base was designed to monitor the cost of calls while you were making them. The punched card carried the call cost information for the telephone to use to calculate the cost, (there is a knack to inserting the card into the machine). On making a call you would select the call charge band and start the timer and then stop the timer at the end of the call. As it was plugged into the mains all the time it also doubled as a digital clock too.
An interesting vintage item and they both will make a great display / talking point. **
Bring a little nostalgia back into your living room, bedroom or any room in your home.
