Siemens PG685 Programmer

Great glyphs and retro colours, but I'm in Australia, so postage is more than the unit itself.

I assume they're Siemens STB switches https://deskthority.net/wiki/Siemens_STB

However, some variations an earlier model comes with keycaps that look like DSA profile https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/Tx0AAOSwLa9UWwOA/s-l1600.jpg and I was wondering whether they'd use a different switch... any experience?

I'd be interested in doing a recreation or adaptation of this keyboard, as it's the second-nicest antique set of caps I've seen after the Data General Dashers.

Nice! I've always wanted to reprogram my Siemens.
