Hi, I recently found this little Beauty in a package lot I bought. I've seen a couple threads on other Beauty models, here, but I didn't see one on this model. I really have nothing to add to the world's knowledge of the camera or its manufacturer, but I thought people might appreciate seeing it. As others have said about the other Beautys, it is a solidly built machine, weighing in at 27 1/2 ounces or 779 grams. I haven't cleaned it, yet (sorry about that), but it arrived in fairly nice condition. I'm calling it fairly nice because, while it looks fantastic, it doesn't actually work. The aperture and shutter speed rings on the lens were extremely reluctant to move, at first. They have become freer with repeated exercise, but clearly still need to be cleaned and re-lubed. It still takes considerable effort to adjust them, and it feels gritty. The focus is what I would call high-resistance, but smooth. It could probably due with a CLA, too, but it's acceptable, as-is. The rangefinder is faint, but it works, and the viewfinder is large, bright, and clean, with a very clear parallax-corrected brightline. The meter is on the top plate, and there is no indicator in the viewfinder. It seems to work, sort of, but it's very "jumpy", swinging from one extreme to the other very quickly and suddenly. The big disappointment, though, is that the film advance is stuck. It may be related to a stuck shutter, but I'm not sure. The self-timer runs down when the shutter button is pushed, but there is no click, and I don't see anything happen. I haven't yet tried using a cable release, which I've seen recommended elsewhere. But, if anyone knows of any other tricks, please share them with me.
