#3776 CENTURY BOURGOGNE
A fountain pen could be said that it is the only writing instrument that improves one’s writing habits over time. This is also common in the manufacture of wine. We think it is the ideal issue that a pen body will be a deeper color just same as a nib becomes more familiar with its writer each day.
Following our ”Black” (BLACK in BLACK) launched in September 2011, what is suitable for red? We imagined the aging of red wine and tested many times to produce a beautiful red color by adding a colors of beautiful reds.
We added the beautiful color of red wine to the transparent resin and tried many times while imagining the aging of red wine and finally deciding on this color. The name is ”Bourgogne”. One of the two French major producers. Another French wine producer Bordeaux is different, but a delicate fruity flavor is characterized.
Platinum Fountain Pen Co., has also installed a new production line for this newest technology gold-plating to enhance the color. A brand new gold by a brand new plating method, and a Bourgogne color. We hope you can spend a happy life enjoying the beautiful character of this pen whether you are a lady or gentleman.
The innovative cap contains a unique “Slip & Seal” mechanism that prevents ink from drying out in the pen. Meanwhile, a newly redesigned nib and feed regulate the ink flow.

◆SLIP & SEAL MECHANISM
It has normally been thought difficult to make an airtight pen with a screw-type cap. If not sealed tightly, the following problems can result:
1. Ink drying out due to moisture evaporation.
2. Problems with dried ink if the pen is not used for three to six months.
3. It can be necessary to clean the pen using our Ink Cleaner Kit or even to repair or replace the nib itself if the damage due to dried ink is too severe.
At the request of customers, we at Platinum Pen Company have gone back to the basics to deal with this problem. This is the first fountain pen which has our unique “Slip & Seal” structure in a pen with a screw-type cap. Thanks to this innovation, currently being patented, it is possible to have a screw-type cap with complete airtightness.
