Normal dials start with 1 to 0 not this one 0 to 9 so it will only work by subsituting 0 as 1 1 as 2 etc. good luck hope I have made it clearer. This was put up for Ria.

Very nice phone!

This model is called Dialog, and was the standard telephone offered by Televerket (Swedish state telecom company, you see their logo on the handset) between 1962 and 1978. This is the wall hung model. These where commonly manufactured by Televerket's industrial division Teli directly, but Ericsson (who designed them) also made them.

Great phones that have really stand up to the test of time, well built and when you start reading about the lenghts they went to to make these phones perfect, you really start to appreciate them. Did you know that a lot of time and effort was put into making sure that the inside of the phone never got completely dark to stop bugs from making nests in it?

These where replaced by the Diavox in 1978, also good phones but not as well built and iconic as the Dialog.

Made in Sweden

Thanks, Peter..! This is a similar arrangement to the dial I have on my green 746 phone, which uses the New Zealand arrangement, which goes completely in the opposite direction to how they were here. It used to confuse people no end, but now there are very few rotary dial phones around, most youngsters today have never seen one, so they don't know any different

Fortunately I have a small circuit board fitted inside this phone which converts the pulses to DTMF, so it can be used normally.

Hi thanks for the additional info from you both, I have got the table models of the Dialog by both makers which seem to be more common then the wall mounted one, they are really well made. Incidently there is a good forum Rotary Phones check out on Google and I have put several phones on You Tube Telephones Of the World.Thanks again.

Interested in the history of electric lighting and incandescent in particular and neon glow lamps.
