Launch of a New Color Featuring the Image of a Flower to a Fountain Pen
Inspired by Nice, the Southern French Luxury Resort

A Release of a New Color gLAVENDEh for NICE Fountain Pen
Release on November 15,2017




A new color gLAVENDE,h which was inspired by lavender flowers, will be added to our #3776 CENTURY gNICEh series, which has been well received since its launch.

Nice is a world-renowned resort and tourist city located in Cote dfAzur in southern France. In early summer, Province region experiences its most beautiful season, with blooming fields of lavender that stretch all the way to the horizon.

The light purple lavender flowers, gently blowing in the early summer wind and bathed in soft light, are expressed through a sandblast finish applied on the high transparency resin barrel. Thereafter, sharp accent lines are added through shaper cutting. The pen also features an exquisite pink gold metal trim.

Lavande, the French word for lavender, is said to be the "queen of herbs," which is highly fragrant and has been prized as a medicinal herb since ancient Roman times for its healing effect. In flower language, lavender denotes "silence" due to the tranquilizing effect as well as its magically strong scent. As the flower language implies, LAVENDE fountain pen creates a sense of calm, inviting one to breathe deeply into writing, making it unique among other NICE models.

It comes with a blotter card with a serial number the initial 3,000 production lots.


About NICE Series @
Nice is a world-renowned resort and tourist city located in Cote d'Azur in southern France. Blessed with a mild climate, beautiful ocean and mountains, the city is also known as the gBay of Angels,h and has attracted many aristocrats and artists. We have been creating NICE series to express a fountain pen that invokes the contrast between a subdued light and the shimmering water.


Barrel Design @
*It applies a sandblast finish, a process to make asperities on the surface by striking sand grains, providing an opaque glass image.
* On the surface, we have cut grooves at the precise angles with shaper cutting, which depending on the angle of the cut, the shimmer of the light changes.


Specifications @
*It applies gSlip & Seal Mechanismh that prevents dye or pigment ink from drying out in the pen; therefore, even after two years of not using the pen with the cap on, it provides smooth, reliable writing. This mechanism allows those who only use the pen once or twice a year writing with fresh new ink.

The #3776g Centuryh Fountain Pen What qualities make for the ideal contemporary fountain pen? Sleek design, comfortable writing balance, smooth flow, and fast-drying inkc At the request of customers, we at Platinum Pen have gone back to the basics to address these issues. Every part and mechanism has been carefully studied and re-engineered. The result is the #3776 gCentury,h designed on the base model of the popular #3776 series pens.

SLIP & SEAL MECHANISM

  It has normally been thought difficult to make an airtight pen with a screw-type cap. If not sealed tightly, the following problems can result:

1. Ink drying out due to moisture evaporation.  
2. Problems with dried ink if the pen is not used for three to six months.  
3. It can be necessary to clean the pen using our Ink Cleaner Kit or even to repair or replace the nib itself if the damage due to dried ink is too severe.  

At the request of customers, we at Platinum Pen Company have gone back to the basics to deal with this problem. This is the first fountain pen which has our unique gSlip & Sealh structure in a pen with a screw-type cap. Thanks to this innovation, currently being patented, it is possible to have a screw-type cap with complete airtightness.
