AKA Gillette Black Beauty.
Date Code O-3, 1969, puts it near the end of the line for the famous Gillette Adjustable razors
This is the rarely seen gold plated variant which is far scarcer than the chrome.
Handle is 4 1/2".
TTO doors work & are pretty smooth but a tad jerky. Hey, they're 45 years old :)
Numbers on adjustment ring run 1 - 9 & the numbers are barely worn.
Gillette gold plate is notoriously thin but this specimen is very good. Some scuffing on TTO doors & s little plating nick on one door & I do mean little. No brassing of finish at least that I can see & brassing is pretty common but not on this one.
These super adjustables are getting harder to find, especially in the Gold.
Overall, a very nice specimen of a rare razor to use or display.
Comes in original plastic case.
