I am a sucker for cigar pens... but why-oh-why... the finials are black??  .. .Not crazy about the black/orange... I think I would have preferred an all orange pen.  

 

My opinion of course... it still is a beautiful pen..  ;)

All-orange is tacky.   Even Delta is easing back on their funny offering.

Sole means Sun in Italian..

It starts in the morning when is dark and ends in the evening when is dark again.

Black at both ends makes sense to me..

Hello everyone and thank you for your replies and opinions!

Sabin that's a really beautiful metaphor it does make sense. Furthermore, as the corners of an Aurora 88 are round shaped they are really difficult to fabric in marbled resin, this is why the brand decided to use black resin instead.

Kind regards,

Iguana Sell

The 88 line deserved a nice diversification for some time as they did with the Optima's.

IMHO it will bring a nice refreshment to the 88 lineup without damaging the classic appeal of the 88's.

I've got several from both and also by the reaction of people to these pens I believe they are timeless peaces. 

Will be looking for the first chance to grab the Sole!


Current modern daily users: Aurora 88 modern; GvFC Classic, Montegrappa Reminiscence, Nettuno Superba, Omas AM87 orange, S.T.Dupont D-Line black lacquer, Stipula Etruria Tuscany Dreams, Tibaldi Iride + a few good Japanese pens as the PG and the 3776.

Current vintage daily users: Aurora 98p, Big Red Lucky Curve, MB622, P51, P75, Pelikan NN400.

That's a good reason for the decision, but couldn't Aurora have handed in the savings to the customer?

This is one lovely looking pen for sure! But it IS NOT an 88 ! The 88 was a hooded nib'd pen . This new model will NEVER be an 88 for me !!

Thank you for sharing your opinion with us!

It is indeed a beautiful piece, and you are right the 88 model has been updated since it was first created around the 1950's but its the details and shape what keeps it iconic!
