85th Anniversary Filofax Personal Eton and Wallet

I bought this lovely set from bouteia on eBay. I was the only bidder so I got it for a really nice price. I bought it mainly because I have the 75th anniversary edition as well.

I was not expecting to like the 85 embossed on the binder but in real life it is actually very nice. I have liked the Eton ever since I bought the Slimline. The leather is unbelievably soft and puffy. It is not the hardiest of leather so not something you could toss in a bag next to your hairbrush or keys. But what beauty.

Bouteia included a 2014 diary with this boxed set as the original 2006 calendar is still in the binder. I have to give them 10/10 for product and service.
