Blue leather SM cases -- figment or reality?

Post by nlj »

I have a vague recollection that when I first learned about Swiss Micros calculators, some years ago, that they came with nice blue leather cases -- either standard or as an option.

Visiting the Swiss Micros site this week, I don't see any blue cases -- neither standard nor as an option.

Did I dream up these blue cases, or did they really exist once? If they existed, were they standard or an optional extra? Were they for the credit-care-size calculators or the full-size landscape calculators or for both? Are they still available anywhere?

I love to resurrect an old thread! I was actually crawling through old posts to see if anything was said about accessories missing from the website. I have an old blue leather case for the CC-sized calculators, so I can definitely confirm that that size and color existed at one time.

Thank you reavy for confirming that I didn't imagine these cases. I'm sorry I didn't see your post until today.

Coincidentally I can add more details that I discovered just last week.

On the 22nd of April, 2015 I wrote in my notes: "Leather folder/case for the DM calculators in a lovely cobalt blue (judging by the picture at least). Model number: DM-FP1BLUBLU. Price: ~$15."

I think you are right that they only existed for the CC-sized calculators.

Yes, only for CC sized calcs.
You can see it here, under 'Photos' tab.

I actually have one that isn’t being used right now, just located it in a box of other calculator stuff.
