The clip is ornamented with a black chinese lacquer band.
More light aded to the picture, so you can see the details.
Deep brown chinese lacquer and gold particles give a very beautiful depth effect.
The pen, posted.

The end of the barrel is specialy designed to secure the cap when posted
So we can insert the cap's end inside it.
And we get a perfectly posted cap, with no line interruption.
How to replace the cartridge, by unscrewing the cap. No more inky fingers!
A close up on the section and the "male" dents
Detail: The "female" dents inside the cap. They also are used when posting the cap, since the disc at the end of the barrel is free to rotate inside the barrel.
The nib. I won't even mention how smooth it is.
Detail: the feeder. Note that the same nib and feed are used on the "Classique" model.
Dimensions : 13.8cm long closed, 12cm uncapped, 16.2 cm posted, 1cm diameter.
EDIT : Apparently, this pen is named "La plume ultime" and not Gatsby.
