Chrome ESII Honeywell Logo?

I just bought this chrome ESII off of eBay from Japan:



I've been looking for quite awhile and I have yet to find a photo of a chrome Honeywell Pentax ESII. Were any chrome ESIIs made with the Honeywell logo or were all of them branded Asahi?


BTW, It took three days for the camera to get to me in the Atlanta GA USA area. Pretty danged fast !

No idea. It is my understanding that ESs and ES IIs are more common in black than chrome but that is all I know...

As many as were shipped for sale in the U.S. while Honeywell was still the official importer (mid-1970s). Do a Google image search and you will find many examples in black and a few in silver with both Asahi and Honeywell labeling. The Honeywell ES II is not real common, but also not particularly rare.

I have 2 ESIIs in black (and just gave a 3rd black one to my brother). I did a Google image search but I didn't find any Honeywell chrome ESII. Got any links to them? Thanks!

My Asahi ESII chrome will be going to Eric for a full service. Just waiting to get my 6x7 back from Eric first.

I don't know how I missed this one ! Thanks.

Crap, I'd have given $50 for it.
