10th Anniversary WM-701T Special Edition
 
Hello, I am posting a thread to inquire about a particular model Walkman the WM-701T (same as WM-701S - 2000 produced) which is the Presentation version of the WM-701. They were also Special Edition units made for Sony by Tiffany & Co., as were the 701S models, but these were even rarer and supposedly only given to certain celebrity names and company officers.

I worked for Sony Corp. from 1989-1995 and, after many of my other cool devices and units were sold off or given away :(, managed to save this one last piece of history. I do not have original box nor all accessories, but do have the gum stick battery/charger, as well as the AAA alt battery source, and mini-jack headphone converter. It is in good condition, everything works 100%, and is need of a good metal polish cleaning as the sterling silver has oxidized after 17yrs of sitting.

I am curious of the production #s of the 701T vs. 701S and a possible value that might be able to be placed on this unit. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time and look forward to responses, Chris. :)

Sony 701t
 
Hi Chris.

If you ever wish to sell your 701T, please let me know. I won't lie to you, they are expensive when they come up for sale. They normally go for anything between 800-1200 dollars. I would love one. Here is my email address if you are interested: mccaffrey_derek******.ie.

Regards.
Derek.

If you still haven't figured it out (this is an old thread I notice), the WM-701T was made in 250 units, according to this site: http://yabinwei.blog.163.com/blog/st...0078171223231/

Each one has the unique ID engraved like "n / 250" i.e. "out of 250 total units".

Best Regards,
/Roger

Thanks Roger :) The 701T Tiffany edition did NOT have "xxx of 250" engraved on them - or maybe I should qualify by saying - at least mine did not. I sold it to a gentleman overseas - Germany I believe. Sorry to see it go, but he was a REAL collector of Walkmans and better with him and in his collection than sitting in a drawer unappreciated and deteriorating ;)

This thread lives!!! Thanks again guys,
Chris
