Looking at the pictures you can see how the chassis and the speaker are similar to the ones of Italian factory model.

The Bosch 402 has no power transformer and the filaments of the valves are connected in series.  

Bosch 402 was manufactured in three editions, the radio you can see here is the third edition.
