(x) Numerals and Typeface - H&FJ Numbers Strasse {Marc O}

Hi everyone,

I was reading the last issue of the Monocle Magazine, and come across a set of numerals they are using in the section talking about the 25 best city worldwide. I can figure it out.
What typeface is that? The numerals are so nicely detailed and yet bold and classy.

Can anyone help?
If needed I can figure out a way to upload an img of the numerals.

Thank you very much

I think we will need to see some samples, if you can post a .gif or .jpg image showing the most distinctive numerals that would help a lot.

These is the best I can do right now.
I will see if I can take a better photo later.

I think the most distinctive are the 5 and 7

Thank you for your help

Looks like one of the Torino variations to me.

I will start looking into that.

This is Numbers Strasse from H&FJ's Numbers collection, "modeled after the glazed ceramic tiles commonly used for house numbers throughout Central Europe":
