..can someone tell whats the difference is between the S nr and the B nr ?
The "B" number could indicate the build number, maybe a production run or a specific configuration of the production. The "S" is the serial number, I'd suspect.

Hoping this helps...

Wouldn't these numbers be the other way round, as 101874 for serial number?

Cheers,

Thank you for the clarification. Yes, you're right, part of the number is even pre-printed on the label, it just seemed peculiar that Thorens would have produced near to 10 million TD 125s. Probably the numbers were not in a continuous sequence and/or didn't start at 000001?
Maybe different number sequences and schemes were used depending on where/when the unit was produced.

I'm afraid only someone from Thorens or otherwise well-informed expert (which I'm not) can clarify all this.

I’ll keep it going.
Thorens TD-124
SN 25109
Guessing that’s around 1960.
