Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this wonderful vintage Omas Ogiva 577-S Fountain Pen, which comes with its OMAS presentation box. The pen has been lightly used and is presented in fantastic condition.
OMAS require no introduction and since their sad demise in January 2016, the hunger from fans and collectors for great examples of their writing instruments has increased dramatically! The company was founded by Armando Simoni and the full name was Officina Meccanica Armando Simoni, abbreviated to OMAS.
This is a vintage 577-S, with the barrel and cap being crafted from black RESIN. The greek key design can be found on the cap, with the trim being gold-plated.
The pen is fitted with a 14k fine nib and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink. The filling mechanism is on the stiffer side (not uncommon on this era of OMAS), but it fills and empties exactly as it should.
The important details are as follows…
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
