Antique materials and meticulous craftsmanship. Reminiscent of the elegance and sobriety of the historic pen of the Thirties â€“ an authentic legend in its time â€“ the new Optima maintains its unique line and all of its charm to become, once again, a cult object for men and women who know how to choose. The new Auroloide version of the Optima range has been created using antique materials and features hand-finished trims and great attention down to the smallest detail. It is available in three stimulating colors: the new marbled burgundy, blue or green. The line offered is composed by fountain pen, ballpoint pen, rolling ball pen and mechanical pencil versions. The cap and barrel in all versions are made of marbled Auroloide, an antique material, yet refined and prestigious. The marbled burgundy Auroloide version has chrome-plated trims, while those in marbled blue or green Auroloide have gold-plated trims. The fountain pen features a solid gold nib in all color versions (blue, green and burgundy) and the traditional piston refill mechanism and hidden reservoir. The Optima Auroloide pens come in a stylish velvet presentation case and, like all Aurora pens, they are on sale at stores that specialize in writing instruments, top stationers and jewelers.
