With Platinum's latest technology and innovative cap design, the "Slip & Seal" mechanism in this #3776 Century model prevents the ink from drying out for up to 24 months. This opaque white resin fountain pen is accented by gold trim. It accepts proprietary Platinum cartridges or a Platinum converter for use with bottled ink (both are included), and features a 14k gold nib.
Inspired by the Chateau de Chenonceau in Loire in France, also known as the "castle of six ladies," which was owned and loved by six noblewomen through the centuries, the new color Chenonceau White expresses the image of the white, elegant look of the castle. Its soft ivory color matches well with the gold finish, highlighting its grace. Being constructed over the river, the chateau and the waters create an exceptional scenery, which suites the image of the #3776 series that retains moisture of the ink over time thanks to the Slip & Seal Mechanism. It is Platinum's hope that the elegant and luxurious Chenonceau White color, which was created in pursuit of a white tone that can be well-received both by men and women, adds a distinctive presence in your life.
