Old Olympus Pen

Round about 1970, could be a bit later, I bought an Olympus Pen from Jessops, purely at random. I went hitch hiking around Europe and this was the most expensive item I possessed.

I wound the first film on according to the instructions and later had three perfect pictures of my feet.

I am unable to find this camera on the internet and wonder if anyone can identify which camera it was. Unfortunately, I have no idea what happened to this wonderful camera.

I think it was the big brother of the Olympus Trip because it has Manual Controls of Aperture and Speed as well as Automatic control of Aperture and Speed in the Auto setting. It had a big lens surrounded by the round glass beads. There was no ugly sign on the front either.

Can anyone remember this camera?
