Brand history: The Popularity of Olympia Typewriters Often referred to as the Mercedes Benz of typewriters, the Olympia typewriter has historically been proven to be a popular choice with authors, Hollywood filmmakers, and now, with many working models still available, antique collectors and vintage typewriter enthusiasts.

As a brand known for their constant innovation and high standard of craftsmanship, it is estimated that by 1961 approximately half of the typewriters in use in Germany were Olympias. Models that enjoyed particularly enduring popularity include the SM2, SM3 and SF Portable all of which, along with the Progress, Elite and Simplex models were in production from the 1950s to the 1970s.Famous Olympia Fans Danielle Steel uses a 1946 Olympia typewriter which she has named Ollie.
