INTRODUCING THE THIRD IN THE NICE SERIES

THE LILAS

nice_lilas_img

 

Platinum Pen Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo, President: Toshiya Nakata) will release a new color “LILAS” featuring the image of a flower for #3776 CENTURY NICE series.

While there are still many masculine fountain pens, there have been more women searching for fountain pens suitable for them. We have made more of a feminine fountain pen using a pink gold metal trim with a pale pink body to match the image of the lilas flower (meaning lilac in French), so that women can choose a fountain pen with the sense of selecting fine jewelry.
nice_lilas_img2
The lilac flower symbolizes friendship, memories of adolescent, innocence and first love. The elegant and glamorous style of the LILAS model matches the meaning of the flower, making a perfect gift for your loved ones.
*It comes with a blotter card with a serial number for the first limited 2,000 pens.

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 “Bay of Angels,” 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 sharper cutting, which depending on the angle of the cut, the shimmer of the light changes.

INTRODUCING

THE SECOND IN THE GOLD LEAF SERIES

THE ASCENDING DRAGON 

NOW AVAILABLE 

 

shouryu_e_01 (1) Platinum Rising Dragon shouryu_07

The beauty of the Kanazawa-haku (gold leaf) and the traditional application techniques have joined together with the expert fountain pen craftsman, to release a premium masterpiece, the Kanazawa-haku fountain pen “Ascending Dragon,” our second “Kanazawa-haku (gold leaf)” fountain pen series after “Fujin Raijin (the Wind God and the Thunder God)”

Platinum Rising Dragon black backgroundshouryu_08

Platinum Kwazawa leaf

Ascending Dragon has been painted as an auspicious work inspired from the ancient time. Using the “Unryu-zu (a folding screen along with the painting of a dragon in the clouds)” painted by Sotatsu Tawaraya as a motif, we applied “Kanazawa-haku Momi Chirashi” technique meticulously on each of the fountain pens. By utilizing a modern “makie” technique, we have created a distinguished and sophisticated “Rimpa” style fountain pen. The base is Kanazawa-haku using Momi Chirashi, a traditional technique that after a gold leaf is extended to a thin sheet, it is torn into smaller pieces. These are then pasted to the barrel of the pen, giving an elegant glow that reflects light with depth and adding a lively motion to the dragon, which makes a remarkable, one-of-a-kind fountain pen. 

Platinum Rising Dragon screen shouryu_e_05

 http://www.hakuichi.co.jp/kanazawahaku/flow.html

The Ascending Dragon is designed with the completely air tight Slip and Seal  Mechanism, popular in the #3776 CENTURY series that prevents the ink from drying out or evaporating over time. This will allow your pen to write every day or once a year like you just inked it today.

The innovative cap contains a unique “Slip & Seal” mechanism that prevents ink from drying out in the pen. Meanwhile, a newly redesigned nib and feed regulate the ink flow. Founded in 1919, Platinum Pens is now nearing a full century of achievement. The #3776 “Century” celebrates this approaching anniversary and continues Platinum Pens’ tradition of technological innovation. With Platinum Pens, the pleasure of writing and the use of fine writing instruments will always be evolving.
The #3776“ Century” Fountain Pen. What qualities make for the ideal contemporary fountain pen? Sleek design, comfortable writing balance, smooth flow, and fast-drying ink… 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 “Century,” 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 “Slip & Seal” 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.

Platinum 5th Lake seriesPNB-25000K_1_1Platinum 5th Lake Series caped PNB-25000K_2

An image of the Mt. Fuji and the water of the Lake Kawaguchi waiting for the dawn in the pure silence is expressed with this new fountain pen. “Dawn blue” refers to the gradation of colors at the dawn when the sky is covered with the darkest blue just before the dawn. It is reflected upon the water together with the image of Mt. Fuji. We have incorporated such color into the transparent water of the lake. The contrast between the mirror-like surface and the quiet streams that ripple with the breeze, which symbolizes the state of the lake at dawn, has been reproduced in the barrel using a technique to apply lustrous convex/concave patterns. The part that resembles Mt. Fuji is placed at the top of the cap to express the image of the vague silhouette of the mountain emerging at the dawn.The expression of the cap ring Unlike the conventional engraved marks, we have applied three-dimensional letters for the first time with absolute attention to detail so as to reproduce a brand image suitable for the most prominent model of the series.

THE STORY OF 

#3776 CENTURY “YAMANAKA”

Lake Yamanaka, located near Mount Fuji, is the highest of the Fuji Five Lakes in terms of elevation with an altitude of 1,000 meters. Surrounded by gently sloping mountains, the sunbath lake located in grandeur and rich variety of scenery illuminated with light. It is a beautiful lake, which the water wave with the reflection of the highland shines while fresh wind blows through the lake. The fountain pen was made to reflect the image of a ripple of the brilliant lake on the transparent barrel. “#3776 Yamanaka” is an elegant masterpiece in which we paid close attention to design the balance cutting pattern and the transparent part expressing the shiny lake surface. In the newness, there is a warmth and sense of nostalgia. We hope the pen accompanies users for many years to come. 

The “Slip and Seal mechanism” in the cap has become a special specification, and standard for the pens that are named after all of the Fuji Five Lakes. A sense of fun that you can visually view the specially designed mechanism that rotates like a merry-go-round each time the cap is opened or closed.

We believe the bluish transparency of the body’s clarity with no visual turbulence, will be loved and treasured forever as a pen that personifies conservative individuality in hand, pocket or purse

The new “Slip and Seal Cap Mechanism” of the pen now allows us to enjoy the use of beautiful pigment inks. Try the mild and meaningful writing pleasure of pigment ink. We at Platinum Co., have attached the brand new appearance a pigment ink in Blue as well as the current Black color which we have been producing since 1985. A pigment ink allows the pleasure of writing, of course, excellent light fastness, water resistance, and less bleeding to enable you to save your writings with warm feelings for many years and to pass on to your loved ones.

The Chartres Cathedral is one of the three major cathedrals in France and was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. The stained glasses that have a historic value are from the 11th to the 13th centuries and are known worldwide for their beauty. Particularly, the blue color, which is illuminated by light, expresses both deep and clear feelings and it is called “Chartres blue.”  The #3776 CENTURY CHARTRES BLUE fountain pen was made with the image of the sacred color.
