Aurora continues its journey through the Solar System, inspired by the splendor of the Planets. The Aurora 88 Nettuno is the sixth release in Aurora’s Stellar Collection after the well received Saturno, Urano, Marte, Nebulosa, and Sole. The 88 Nettuno is limited to 888 pieces worldwide.
The Aurora 88 Nettuno is made entirely in-house, including the nib and ebonite feed, which are outsourced by most pen companies. The cap and barrel are made from marbled blue Auroloide while the cap’s finial, grip section, and piston knob are made from black resin.
The rhodium-plated 18k gold nib is available in eleven widths: CEF, CF, CM, EF, F, FF, M, B, BB, Factory Italic, and Factory Stub. Aurora’s nibs are excellent candidates for customization from a simple Tune & Smooth to any custom grind, all of which are included at no additional charge!
Each Aurroa 88 Nettuno fountain pen is engraved with its limited edition number out of 888 on the top of the cap, opposite the clip.
Like all 88s, the Nettuno features Aurora’s unique piston filler design with a built-in ink reserve. When the pen runs dry, extend the piston to access enough ink for several more pages of writing. The piston knob will remain extended acting as a reminder to refill the pen while still allowing the cap to be posted.
Pre-orders are now being accepted with delivery expected in April 2019. Payment will not be collected until the pens have arrived and are ready to ship.
