 This great item is in overall Very Good Condition. There is a small amount of plate loss to the razor as can be seen in the photos. The TTO knob works as well as the day it left the factory, the doors open smoothly and close tightly. This timeless razor comes in a brown leather covered box with maroon velvet interior.

 The case is 3 1/2 inches by 3 inches and the razor is 3 1/4 inches long. The gold piping looks Very Good with NO discoloration or severe scratches. The outside of the case has Small Amounts of vintage wear, which can be seen in the pictures, the case is in Good Condition, the hinges still work perfectly closing the lid with a snap. On the back of the case as you can see is a Very Small Area where the leather has been torn, which in my opinion can be repaired. 

 The case is in overall Good Vintage condition. The inside of the case is covered with maroon velvet, the inside top of the case is covered with the original material and the Gillette stamp is in Very Good Condition and can be seen clearly. The fabric inside of the case is in Very Good Plus Condition. Included with this set is a partial dispenser of Gillette Super Blue Blades which is in Very Good Condition. 

 Some consider this the gold standard of DE shavers. These razors are well built and give wonderful shaves. The size and weight of these razors provide great balance and makes shaving a pleasure. Great care was taken in the cleaning and sanitation of this razor. It is shave ready, just put in your favorite blade. Please be sure to look carefully at all the pictures and also see all the pictures that I have posted on YouTube.

HISTORY:
Spanning approximately 70 years, the Aristocrat name plate was the longest running of the Gillette line of DE razors, and in my opinion, was their flagship razor. True, more upscale and pricier sets were made, but only for short periods of time, while the Aristocrat enjoyed fairly steady production until a decade long break from 1951 to 1961. This appears to have been a very popular razor in its time.

1955 Re-Plated Gillette Diplomat Razor w Original Case

1955 Re-Plated Gillette Diplomat Razor w Original Case
http://youtu.be/910_3n-iUp0 More Pictures

 1955 Re-Plated Gillette Diplomat Razor w Original Case. 1955 Gillette A3 Diplomat is a TTO (Twist to Open) razor and was produced between 1953 and 1956.  This razor is 24 ct. Gold plated with a top coat of lacquer to protect the gold as it is a very soft metal.  The set comes with a partial container of Gillette Blue Blades in the original dispenser.  The Razor is in Mint Condition with Absolutely No Wear, it has been completely disassembled, given a complete tuneup so that all the mechanics work precisely as they should, the doors open and close properly and close tightly to hold the blade firmly in place. The blade gap is even on both sides of the razor as it should be, the razor was then re-plated with 24 carat Gold and reassembled.

 The razor case is in Good Plus Condition.  The hinges are in excellent condition closing the lid with a snap. The outside of the case has small amounts of vintage Ware which can be seen in the pictures. The inside of the case shows minimal soiling with no rips or tares to the fabric. Please be sure to look closely at all the pictures, also all the pictures that I have posted on YouTube.

  One way to identify this beauty is the handle, which is thicker than the Super Speed, it is fluted and completely knurled the entire length from neck to knob unlike the Aristocrat of the same years which had a smooth band just above the knob.  The Diplomat is 3.25” in overall length and 
weighs in at 70 grams.  The blade gap of this razor is .64mm, which is the same as the Gillette New Razor.  One other thing to note is that this razor came with the notched center bar to accept the use of the Blue Blade dispenser packs produced at the time.  The Diplomat came in a very 
handsome leather clad case that was embossed with the Gillette crest in 24 ct Gold Leaf.

  This razor is one of my favorites, as I own another I occasionally use it.  I get a fantastic shave from it, very comfortable and clean.  There is just something about shaving with a 24 ct. Gold razor that just seems to make the shave that much more luxurious.  Now you have the opportunity to buy a Gillette Diplomat, I highly recommend you jump on it, you won't be seeing another Gillette Diplomat razor in this condition anytime soon. The razor has been cleaned, polished, re-plated, tuned up and is shave ready, just put in your favorite blade and get ready for the best shave of your life.
