The new Auroloide version of the Optima range features hand-finished trims and great attention down to the smallest detail. The cap and barrel are made of marbled Auroloide, an antique material, yet refined and prestigious. This green fountain pen features a solid 14k gold nib with an ebonite feed, the traditional piston refill mechanism and hidden reservoir, and a clear ink window. The Optima Auroloide pens come in a stylish velvet presentation case.

Antique materials and meticulous craftsmanship. Reminiscent of the elegance and sobriety of the historic pen of the Thirties – an authentic legend in its time – the Aurora Optima maintains its unique line and all of its charm to become, once again, a cult object for men and women who know how to choose.
