Lounging on the balcony with a glass of burgundy and a notebook for drafting your latest composition, you can't help but admire your pen---the deep red subtly illuminated by the late-afternoon sun, and the gold accents shining fleetingly as you tilt the pen, mimicking your gleaming wine glass. This beautiful appearance exudes sophistication and portrays the high quality of Platinum's meticulously-designed 3776 Century fountain pen. The pen has a resin body and a 14-carat gold nib. The transparent yet deep Bourgogne color is inspired by the red wines of Burgundy, France.

In 2011, as an early celebration of their 100th anniversary, Platinum (founded in 1919) launched the 3776 Century fountain pen in the black color called "Black in Black." A key innovation is the "Slip & Seal" mechanism in the screw-on cap which drastically delays ink dryout. Whereas dried ink causes problems for typical fountain pens not used for 3-6 months, the 3776 Century pen can withstand longer periods of not being used. The carefully engineered pen achieves sleek design, a comfortable writing balance, and smooth ink flow. The Bourgogne version was launched in 2012 as a new color of the same pen.

This pen is based on Platinum's original 3776 fountain pen which was designed by Haruo Umeda ("Mr. Fountain Pen") and Platinum designers who strove to incorporate all of the ideal qualities of fountain pens to create the highest-quality pen. Their aspiration is reflected in the name "3776," which represents the elevation (in meters) of Mt. Fuji, the highest peak in Japan. The pen launched successfully in 1978, and Platinum has improved the 3776 collection even further since then.

The 3776 Century pen (black version) ranked 4th in the 2011 3rd quarter Nikkei Consumer Watcher, a list issued by Japan's Nikkei newspaper which ranks products based on appeal, ease of use, technology, quality, and other attributes. The pen ranked among Mazda and Honda automobiles, outranked the Apple MacBook Air, and was the only writing instrument ranked in the top 20. Following its 2012 launch, the Bourgogne version won an ISOT 2012 prize. This prize is awarded to the top ten new products at the annual International Stationery and Office Products Fair Tokyo, a leading stationery trade show.

The pen comes in a gift box with one black ink cartridge and one converter. It accepts Platinum ink cartridges and a Platinum converter.
