One trans-Continental journey, and our slightly smaller one
The immense carriage of the SG1 is the only part of the machine that meets the footprint of the Ambassador. This thing is massive. Yet, it weighs a great deal less than the SG1.
While similar to the Remington Noiseless, the Continental Silenta worked on a simpler mechanism. Notice the typebars only have two characters each, as opposed to the four of the Remington. It was even advertised, and has been called, better engineered than the Remington. Beautiful.
