#3776 CENTURY Bourgogne/Gold Fountain Pen. Special Edition.
A fountain pen could be said that it is the only writing instrument that improves one's writing habits over time. This is also common in the manufacture of wine. It is the ideal issue that a pen body will be a deeper color just same as a nib becomes more familiar with its writer each day.
Tested many times to produce a beautiful color of red wine to the transparent resin it is the result.
The name “Bourgogne” one of the two French major producers.
Platinum has also installed a new production line for this newest technology gold-plating to enhance the color. A brand new gold by a brand new plating method, and a Bourgogne color.
The pen has a stunning translucent red wine barrel.
The innovative cap contains a unique “Slip & Seal mechanism” that prevents ink from drying out in the pen with a complete airtightness thereby allowing those who only use the pen once or twice a year to write with fresh new ink. Meanwhile, a newly redesigned nib and feed regulate the ink flow. 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.
