Ooh. Hopefully that means I'll be receiving mine from Marco soon...

 

First impressions appreciated.

 

The first word which comes to my mind is "Elegant" The blue color with the gold trims have a very nice contrast.

Nearly all sellers are saying that there are 188 pens per color, with a different color for every month. I have verified via a 3rd party who contacted Aurora, that there will be only 8 colors available and each color will have 111 pens with a total of 888 pens all with an FF nib. There are also images of the pen with the 111 marking on it. This makes the pen more limited then advertised and whoever wants one, it is better to hurry !


Both my Auroras -- blue and red -- have 188 as their LE designation rather than 111.

Is that all of the UK then?

Mine too.

I have the yellow one and is the pen that changed my fountain pens collecting ideal. I LOVE completely love this pen and it was my first aurora.

It's like a drug for me.....

Absolutely wonderful. I wish i could effort all the colours

I picked the yellow up a few days ago.  It's just spectacular.  I most definitely wouldn't call it a vintage-style flex, but it's definitely got some play.  Splaying the tines is easier than with the Pilot Falcon, for example.  I find the pressure required to be lower than something like the Pilot Custom 912, with the ability to write for longer periods before railroading.  While the resin body isn't my favorite (particularly for the price), I'm absolutely loving the writing experience.

 

If you're ok spending the money on a resin pen, it's a strong recommend!

I missed out on the red, blue and yellow, but picked up a green a few months back.  I liked it so well I started looking again and got the last orange that Pen Chalet had in stock.  See a few brown's  still available but the pocketbook can't take the hit again so soon.

Jeff
