    This is the second model of the iconic Rolleiflex TLR camera. It's from the late 1920s, and was in horrific condition when it arrived at my door. After replacing the mirror, giving a thorough cleaning, and reworking the shutter mechanism, it's fully functional and a beautiful antique.

      In all honesty (you can hate me all you want for this), about 2-3 hours, including dying the leather. This one was EASY to get apart, but now it's working like it should and will likely last another 90 years if someone takes care of it. Thanks!

      Owning a Rolleiflex Original model and a Baby 4x4 of the same model of my giant replica are my goals. Did not find any that fits my budget yet...:(. This is a nice find and you did a good job restoring it.
