Diplomat Aero Rollerball Pen
The Diplomat Aero rollerball pen was created to celebrate the first flight of the famous Zeppelin airship in 1900.
A pen made entirely of aluminium might be expected to be light in the hand, but the Diplomat Aero rollerball pen is, in fact, of a pleasing weight, and its shape means that the centre of gravity is in the hand when writing. The all-metal manufacture ensures that the Aero is highly shock-resistant. The cap will post deeply, but the Diplomat Aero is of a size that it is comfortable to use without the cap..
There are now five variants of the Diplomat Aero rollerball pen, four of them in coloured anodised aluminium, and a fifth in “Factory Finish”, that is, in polished aluminium that shows off this luxurious pen’s design features most clearly. The clip, section and finials are also of aluminium, and are made to compare or contrast with the principal colour of the cap and pen – matt aluminium for the brown and matt silver versions, and black for the others; the clip is sprung to keep the pen firmly anchored in pocket or bag when not in use. Diplomat’s name is around the cap-band in a stylish modern font, and the Aero’s cap also features Diploma’s eight-lobed flower logo on the finial, which on this pen looks delightfully like a propellor for the airship. The cap is a push-fit so, although there is a significant step between the barrel of the pen and the section, there is no screw thread to irritate during an extended period of writing.
We at Write Here love the design of these pens, and are pleased to be able to offer the Aero for you to buy online, or in person from our shop on the High Street in Shrewsbury, in the UK.
