• #3776 Century - Chartres Blue

The original Platinum #3776 model was developed in 1978 in collaboration with the late Mr. Haruo Umeda, a Japanese writer and a fountain pen collector, in pursuit of the ideal fountain pen. Named after Mount Fuji's altitude (Japan's highest peak), the pen conveys the hope of the company to create the best fountain pen in the country. The #3776 “Century” celebrates Platinum Pen Co's centennial anniversary. With its sleek design inspired by the very popular original #3776, the Century continues Platinum Pens’ tradition of technological innovation with modernised engineering and technology to produce a comfortable writing balance, smooth flow for an overall ideal writing experience.

The innovative cap contains a unique “Slip & Seal” mechanism that prevents ink from drying out in the pen. Meanwhile, a newly redesigned nib and feed regulate the ink flow. Founded in 1919, Platinum in Japan have been making pens for over a century.

The Chartres Blue colour is inspired by the stunning blue colour reflected in the stained glass windows of the famous Chartres Cathedral in France. 

With Platinum Pens, the pleasure of writing and the use of fine writing instruments will always be evolving.

Uses Platinum cartridges or a Platinum bottled ink adapter (included). Translucent blue body with gold plated trim. 14c gold nib.


I know that the only way to decide whether you really like a pen or not is to hold it, which is kindof difficult to do over the internet, so I have a solution. Buy it. If you don`t like it, ship it back (your cost and everything must be returned in like new condition), and I will give you a full refund. I don`t think that you can get fairer than that.
