A tall and thin (29 mm / 1 1/8 inches) pocket radio, one of the most stylish pocket radios to have been produced in France.
Like many European MW/LW radios, this set's MW band is calibrated in kHz and the LW band displays the handful of LW broadcasters by name.
Radios made in France designated their bands as "PO" (Petites ondes) and "GO" (Grandes ondes), "PO" being MW, and "GO" LW.
