I chose the Gold trim Broad nib. First off this pen comes in a out 2 piece black matt textured box. Open the box and you find white tissue paper wrapped around the inner presentation box. Flip down the front side of the outer box and remove the inner presentation box. The presentation box is black hardwood finish with a aluminum insert on the top of the lid with pieces lazer cut out to make it appear there is a zeppelin on the cover. Also says Diplomat Zepp Limited Edition. Open the cover and you see this stunning 14kt gold two tone nib Diplomat Zepp fountain pen resting in a dark grey deep rich feeling cloth with a matching band to keep the pen nestled in place. Then there is a pouch which has a pleated stretch to keep papers etc inside. The lid is attached by a silver colored metal hinge on each side. The box lid stays closed with the aid of a two piece magnetic button in the middle of the lid and the box. Just the box alone says you are going to be holding a fantastic pen in your hands. My pen is number 65 of 500. Twist the barrel from the cap with such a smooth feeling. The facets of the barrel and cap always aligned when you put the barrel and cap back together. When you go to fill the pen with ink you will feel resistance and squeezing sound. This is from the o-ring that keeps everything secure. Closing it you will feel the same thing. A very satisfying feeling. I have not inked the pen yet as I just received it a couple of hours ago. I really want to choose the right ink for this pen as is truly deserves just the right ink. Time and talent was given in designing and manufacturing this pen. If you have read other reviews I have done in the past I don't go into great detail like I did about this pen. This pen as of right now gets AAA+ from me.
