Konica's Gold Hexar  is very stylishly done with a burnished gold finish, rather than the shiny gold finish used by most gold cameras.  The packaging is first rate as well, with a special red velvet lined presentation walnut embossed case.       The inside case is labeled "Konica's 120th Anniversary."  Even the lens cap is gold.  Translation: don't lose it!!!!!!    Ever try to buy a gold lens cap??

Konica also made a 100th Anniversary T3.  1500 were made, with the numbers engraved on the baseplate and with a 100th Anniversary name plate on front.    Alas, just chrome.  I guess it was before they made it big in the copier market and could afford the gold cameras.
