Arrived in excellent time, in good order
on 10 January 2015
To my amazement sent from south Korea !! Manufactured in Germany, sent to Korea, to be shipped to the uk. The modern way I guess.
Arrived in excellent time, in good order. I agree with a previous reviewer - I don't know if the "improved" design is in fact an improvement, but it fits well, and works. I'll update when I have a few shaves under my belt.
Update Sept 2015: well, a bit of an either way conclusion. In the interim, while I was awaiting delivery, I used my spare, a Lidl £15.00 shaver of similar design. Found I preferred it, better battery life, quieter (the Braun feels industrial in comparison), a battery indicator, and as good a shave.
Recently went on as trip, took the Braun as my travel shaver. A pig to recharge (it hadn't been used for a year), but it did, and held charge. Still industrially loud and buzzy, but I do think perhaps it shaves better....
