I had (and have since sold) the OMAS 360 in translucent blue with rose gold nib and trim. I never had any problems with it, and so far as I know neither does the current owner. So whatever the issue is, it doesn't seem to strike every pen. Either there are a few inks which attack rose gold, or those with problems have/had pens with a plating defect of some sort or another.

I have the same problem with an Omas 360 vintage..... No harsh ink use. Usually just pilot or MB inks, and it started to flake after about 8 months.....
The pen is mightier than the sword, and I wield an extrafine point...... En garde!! :-)

i was just about to say... same story with my bellini. i bit the bullet and ordered a replacement nib from stipula ( (not that cheap at 25 euros--a 1.1 stub, which was what i should've gotten in the first place), but now i have to be very careful with it.

I had similar experience with a Stipula Bellini. The rose gold on the nib flaked and discolored. Last rose gold for me.

Well, Marco suggests to send to Omas and have them replace the nib.

A fool and his money are soon parted: Montegrappa 300, Waterman Expert II, Omas Ogiva Autunno, Omas 555/S, Omas 557/S, Omas Ogiva Scarlet, Waterman Patrician Agate, Montblanc 144, Omas Ogiva Arco brown.

Came back from Omas, good as new. Now inked with Akkerman's Bezuidenwoudgroen (no. 27).
