Aurora 88 Black with Chrome Cap

With its lined white-metal cap and black resin body, the Aurora 88 Large with Chrome Cap fountain pen is often referred to as the tuxedo of this long-standing line of elegant writing instruments. The tapered, rounded shape adds to the pen's elegance, while the ornate cap carries about a third of the weight of this well-balanced pen. The design of the Aurora 88 has been around since the 1950s and has a prestigious history - it was the first pen to be exhibited at the Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology in Milan, Italy.

Sporting a tapered design that distinguishes it from the flat-top Optima series, the 88 is matched by its well-engineered piston-filling system and generous ink capacity. These are robust, solidly crafted writing instruments, superb for everyday usage.

 
Not only is the Aurora 88 Large with Chrome Cap fountain pen sophisticated, it is also an excellent everyday writer. The transparent ink window located between the barrel and the section indicates when it's time to refill this generous piston-filling pen, and the window is completely concealed when the pen is capped. With its hidden reservoir system, this Aurora 88 gives an extra boost of ink just when you need it.
 
 
The perfect dome of the cap and the curvaceous clip demonstrates the excellent attention to detail on this pen, and seems to emulate the shape of a droplet of water suspended momentarily.
