Omas Limited Edition T2 Titanium With Diamonds Fountain Pen
An unprecedented attempt by Omas once again to cut from a solid piece of titanium to produce this extraordinary rare Omas Limited Edition T2 Titanium With Diamonds Fountain Pen.
It is an achievement of modern industrial design based on the Paragon size fountain pen. This 12-sided Titanium metal clad pen is light, strong and understated. The very fine cut lines on each facet of the cap and barrel of the Omas Limited Edition T2 Titanium With Diamonds Fountain Pen adds a depth to the surface.
Titanium is a very challenging metal to work with. (Parker's 1970 T1 titanium fountain pen was very difficult to produce.) The nib is 18K gold and is laser engraved with the OMAS 75th anniversary logo.
Each Omas Limited Edition T2 Titanium With Diamonds Fountain Pen is embellished with diamonds on the cap band and now this vintage Omas pen is one of the most sought after antique Omas pen you can find.
Omas was established in Bologna, Italy in 1925 by Armando Simoni who designed equipments and tools for the company to make the Omas Pens. The name OMAS comes from the first letters of Officina Meccanica Armando Simoni, a name synonymous to quality and contemporary design today.
Some of the most iconic designs of OMAS includes the vintage Omas Doctor Pen which allows a thermometer to be inserted into the pen, Omas Art Italiana Collection, Omas 360 Collection with a triangular body to maximize grip and writing comfort.
The largest size pen manufactured as a non-limited edition in the OMAS stable include the 12-faceted Paragon, the second largest being the Milord Collection. Omas product range was last updated in 2005 with the Milord model which has the size of the pre-2005 Paragon model. OMAS continued to release Limited editions based on their earlier style pens. Other luxury collection include the Apollo 11 Collection, Atlantide Collection, Merville Du Monde and the Almirante Collection.
In 2000, the French company LVMH acquired OMAS from the heirs of Armando Simoni. Subsequently, in October 2007 the Xinyu Hengdeli Group 亨得利 of Hong Kong purchased 90% equity stake in OMAS. It was subsequently sold to another Chinese company O-Luxe.
As at this time of writing, OMAS pens have become such a collectible pen that exudes luxury and contemporary design of modern times. Hence, with the company on liquidation since 2015, Omas is definitely a very collectible pen.
