Platinum Pen introduces the #3776 Nice Lilas, dedicated to the Lilac flowers (Lilas in French), which can be found in a.o. the wonderful French city Nice in the Côte d'Azur. Blessed with a mild climate, beautiful ocean and mountains, the city is also known as the “Bay of Angels,” and has attracted many aristocrats and artists. The attraction of the pouring radiant sunlight, which represents the city of Nice, is expressed through the pen’s body.
On a resin body, which is excellent in transparency, Platinum has applied a sandblasted finish while cutting grooves at precise angles with shaper cutting to express a contrast between a subdued light and the shimmering water. As the name LILAS (meaning lilac in French) implies, Platinum has used a pink gold metal trim with a pale pink body to match to the image of the flower. The lilac flower symbolizes friendship, memories of adolescent, innocence and first love, while also symbolizing pride and beauty in the West. The elegant and glamorous style of the Nice Lilas fountain pen matches the meaning of the flower and makes a perfect gift.
It comes with a blotter card with a serial number for the first limited 2,000 pens in this edition.
The pen has a 14 karat gold nib and uses cartridges or converter.
Normally, special Platinum cartridges are needed for the pens, however, Platinum/Nakaya has developped a special adapter: with this adapter
you can use standard international cartridges with this Platinum pen.
Please bear in mind that Japanese usually write a bit narrower than their European counterparts: ordering one or two sizes larger than your normal nib width can be recommended.
The “Slip and Seal mechanism” in the cap has become a special specification. It has normally been thought difficult to make an airtight pen with a screw-type cap. If not sealed tightly, the ink dries out, resulting in skipping problems, damaged filling systems and damaged nibs.
Platinum Pen has gone back to the basics to deal with this problem with the Slip and Seal mechanism. Thanks to this innovation, it is possible to have a screw-type cap with complete airtightness. The innovative screw-on cap system uses an inner plastic plastic seal with a strong spring. The primary benefit of this system is improved storage ability - the ink will not dry out even if left for over a year. An added benefit is improved resistance to leaks due to pressure changes.
