Platinum #3776 Century Chartres Blue fountain pen, PNB-13000#51
Platinum #3776 Century series represents Platinum company’s flagship model.
The Chartre cathedral is the world heritage in France. It is said that stained glass in this cathedral are the most beautiful in the world and these glass still remain so that very rare.
A technology of glass proceed rapidly and getting brighter and brighter, on the other hand, a deep colors in the Chartre Cathedral is not many and many people says it is impossible to produce this kind of color now.
Inspired by the Chartre cathedral in France, this beautiful Platinum 3776 Chartre Blue fountain pen features a deep, rich, vibrant blue translucent body complemented by gold plated accents.
This blue Chartres is a demonstrator pen, but the translucence is only slight. When the light goes through, the translucent pen body appears shiny. The transparent material that used allows you to see through the entire pen including barrel, converter as well as the ink levels. It’s translucent enough to have depth, but solid enough to have some mystery.
The gold trim is the best compliment to the blue, coupled with the cigar shape, giving this pen a rich, warm, classic and traditional subtle demonstrator look (aesthetic). The cigar shape gives it a comfort and balance for usage.
The method of etching is applied to engrave the cap ring so as to make it stand out with a rich three-dimensional expression.
An etching technique is used to mark the Platinum logo on the cap ring. Etching is an elaborate method that forms deep engraving into the unprotected parts of a metal using a fluid by masking the logo to create a three-dimensional effect. With different angle of light reflections, the 3-D effect of logo in gold-colored quite a standout.
The pen features a very smooth writing solid gold 14k nib available in UEF, EF, F, SF, M, B, C and Music points.
The pen features a unique "Slip and Seal" mechanism in the cap, meaning an airtight screw-on cap that prevents ink from drying out. Other fountain pens can dry out in as little as 2–4 weeks without use, but Platinum's Slip and Seal cap prevents dry out for over a year without use. Meanwhile, a newly redesigned nib and feed regulate the ink flow.
It comes with a Platinum gift box packed with one blue cartridge, a converter, a warranty card and an user manual.
Platinum fountain pen is renowned of the great smoothness of its nib and weightless feel of fine writing pen. This classic pen is a perfect choice for anyone looking to experience the world of premium Japanese fountain pens.
Note: Matching mechanical pencil of 0.5mm lead is available, MNB-5000
