eBay watch: Juliette spy briefcase with reel-to-reel recorder


Fancy setting yourself up as a sixties secret agent? We have just the thing to get you started, this Juliette spy briefcase with reel-to-reel recorder.

It is spy kit from 'back in the day', working via mains or battery (although the former might be a giveaway) and looking like our average briefcase from the outside. But inside is that reel-to-reel tape recorder, which works with a microphone for covert recordings.

A strange thing – and not something you'll see again in a hurry. £6.15 is the current price. Lots more images on the site.
