We are about to launch the newest model in the popular 3776 series – the CENTURY fountain pen will be appearing this September. But prior to that, we will be introducing the limited edition MOTOSU transparent demonstrator pen.
In homage to the current year, it will be released worldwide on July 1st in an edition of just 2011 pieces, with the serial number on the pen’s cap. Lake Motosu is one of five major lakes surrounding Mt. Fuji. And as Lake Motosu is renowned for its clear transparent waters, we at Platinum thought this an appropriate name for this release.
The CENTURY, the newest model in the 3776 series, is designed to create beautiful calligraphy in Japanese letters. Also new in this model is the high performance “slip and seal” structure in the pen’s cap, meant to protect against leaks caused by changes in atmospheric pressure.
◆ 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.
