#3776 Century Burgundy Fountain Pen from Platinum
The #3776 Century fountain pen is a revisited version of the famous #3776 from the Japanese brand (created in 1978). Its name was chosen as a tribute to Mount Fuji, the highest point in Japan at 3776m. This improved version was created in 2011. The great novelty is its revolutionary and completely innovative “Slip & Seal” system: the inside of the cap is fitted with a spring linked to an internal plastic cap that provides a perfect airtight seal. This patented system prevents the ink from evaporating and the nib from drying out for up to two years without the fountain pen being used.
A member of the demonstrator family and made of resin, the translucent #3776 Burgundy is a brilliant blue colour that will be even more luminous when the light caresses it.
The trims of the fountain pen are gold-plated, more precisely the rings are gold-plated on a brass base and the clip is gold-plated on a beryllium copper base. They adorn the fountain pen beautifully, including the superb central band engraved with the brand’s name, “#3776 Century” and the words “made in Japan”. Note that the threaded section is made of metal, a sign of the brand’s seriousness.
The nib is made of 14-carat gold and is beautifully engraved with, among others, an illustration of Mount Fuji. Note that the breathing hole is heart-shaped at Platinum. The nib is available in seven sizes: UEF, EF, F, SF, M, B et MS. The model is supplied with its converter – whose metal parts are gold-plated – as well as a cartridge and will be delivered in a lovely navy blue box.
