To celebrate the brand's 100th anniversary, Diplomat has drawn inspiration from both the past and the future for its new fountain pen: Nexus.
Based on piston technology, an invention described by pen enthusiasts as revolutionary at the start of the 20th century, but combining it with a new patented sealing system by securely sealing the cap, Nexus combines the best of yesterday and tomorrow. No more risk of running out of ink; no more cartridges and their plastic packaging.
This black anodized aluminum fountain pen has an ink window in the barrel so you can visibly see your remaining ink level. Complemented by a chrome trim and a textured metal grip section, the pen comes equipped with a smooth writing #6 JoWo steel nib.
To fill this pen, hold it with the nib facing upwards. Simply unscrew the barrel from the nib/grip section, fill the barrel with your preferred bottled ink using the included eyedropper or an ink syringe, and screw the nib/grip section back on.
The patented automatic closing sealing system works by screwing on the cap, which activates a secure seal. No more risk of ink leaking into your cap when not in use!
Thanks to its unique characteristics - a proven seal, no risk of leakage even on an airplane, a large ink capacity, ease of use, and perfect fluidity of writing - Nexus offers a reassuring and infinite writing experience.
A bottle of black Diplomat ink is included.
