Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Omas Paragon Arco Bronze Celluloid Vintage LE75 Fountain Pen, which comes with its large OMAS presentation box (including outer), bottle of ink and information booklet. The pen has been very lightly used and is presented in fantastic condition. Only 75 were produced and this is number 59.
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.
The Vintage Limited Edition pens were released in 2013 and the Paragon examples have three thin cap bands rather than the usual Greek key version.
This is the Arco Bronze celluloid version and it requires no introduction… with it being arguably the most sought-after pen material on the planet, alongside Arco Verde. With its myriad of golden brown ones, it’s a material that simply has to be seen to be fully appreciated. The arco pattern lines up wonderfully!
The pen is fitted with a 14k fine ‘Extra Flessible’ nib and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.
The important details are as follows…
Nib: Extra Flessible Fine
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”.
