gNova Orange,h meaning gnew orangeh to appear

On July 20, 2016, Platinum Pen Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo, President: Toshiya Nakata) will launch a new color as the gcolor of the year of 2017h for Plaisir fountain pen series, which was first released in 2011 as a pioneer of our low price fountain pen. Created based of a theme of gmaking a fountain pen more functional and enjoyable for everyday use,h Plaisir fountain pen has been well received among a wide variety of customers since its launch.

With the recent heightening interest in fountain pens, we have been inspired to produce a special Plaisir pen that will attract more customers. We are adding gNova Orangeh as the 11th color to the current ten colors available. The word gNovah means gnewh in Latin. We have put particular emphasis on the color development of the alumite finish on the barrel. After great effort through trials and errors of dyeing and polishing processes, we have created a unique orange color, which we have labeled it a gnova (new) orange.h In addition, for the first time in the Plaisir series, we have chosen a smoke black color for the grip matching the gNova orangeh on the barrel. It is a special version of the series models with a sophisticated look.

A special version of the series using a smoke black color for the grip matching the gNova Orangeh color on the barrel.
It applies gSlip & Seal Mechanismh that prevents ink from drying out in the pen, therefore it provides a smooth reliable writing even though not using the pen for a year.
