We are pleased to announce the release of the fifth pen within the Aurora Planets series, titled Nettuno or Neptune in English. You may recall the previous models, including Sole, Marte, Saturno and the ever popular Nebulosa. Nebulosa was the first purple “Auroloide” material and was sold out in within a short period of time. In our opinion, Nettuno shares the same beauty and uniqueness of the Nebulsa, as the material is the first of its kind and limited to this large 88 design. You may be familiar with our current blue marble Optima and the light blue from their Mare, but this is different. The Nettuno Fountain Pen is more navy as a base color, while it also sheds flecks of light blue and turquoise evenly throughout the body.
The Nettuno is a numbered limited edition of 888 pieces and comes equipped with the traditional size six 18k nib. As with all Aurora made nibs of this size, the feeds are 100% made of ebonite, which supports the consistent ink flow.
Like all 88s, the 888 Nettuno features Aurora’s unique piston filler design with a built-in ink reserve. When the pen runs dry, extend the piston to access enough ink for several more pages of writing. The piston knob will remain extended acting as a reminder to refill the pen while still allowing the cap to be posted.
All the metal trim is plated in gold to match the solid 18k gold nib. The nib is available in six widths: EF, F, M, B, BB, Stub and Italic.
As with the previous models from the Aurora Planets series, the Nettuno is not long for this world and will be sold out soon.
