29th November, 2013: Another new Limited Edition pen from Omas - the 360 Vintage in the veautiful Dusky Black colour. This new Limited Collection is made of a smoky cotton resin and embellished with two different trims. The famous triangular shape was designed in compliance with ergonomic principles and appears to be the most revolutionary shape of our times. This shape takes on a contemporary and racy character thanks to the innovative transparency of the smoky black, a sophisticated colour made even more attractive thanks to the two trims : ultra black ruthenium, for a strong men’ s style and yellow gold, for a genuine Vintage pleasure. The Limited Edition is enriched by a fine diamond-shaped engraving on both cap and barrel, which gives a distinguishing brightness to the resin. The 18kt nib, which also comes in 14k extra-flexible with the historical engraving, is embellished with a triangular section adornment: emblem of the 360 Collection. 360 Limited and Numbered piston-filled Fountain pens and 60 Roller Balls with ultra black ruthenium trims. 360 Limited and Numbered piston-filled Fountain pens and 60 Roller Balls with yellow gold trims
