Apparently there are a limited number of colored Expo Watch cameras (Black, red and blue) produced in 1935 that fetch much higher prices. One red camera was sold on Ebay on May 09, 2015 for US $985.00. Reasonable condition (B) but no viewfinder or cartridge.

Were they produced like this, or it was a post-manufacture paint?

I believe that they were produced like this

Source:
http://submin.com/large/collection/expo/index.htm
"The Expo Camera Co was taken over in the late 1920s by the dealer G Gennart. Later models of the camera feature different company names on the face plate. In 1935 there were also coloured cameras in red, blue and black enamel and these cameras are extremely rare."

There was a sale (red camera) at Christie's in 1999 for 1100 GBP
http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/LotD ... ID=3471818
Literature
Auer (1989), 150 Years of cameras, no. 50.

I have another book from Auer (The guide to antique cameras) which has a picture of a blue version picture n° 191 - although the pictures in the book are all in B&W :? So one has to believe the description - anyway it shows as a dark painted (enamel?) model with cracks in the enamel.
