Hello there,

 

Just wish to share a couple of pictures of two Omas pens I have.  

 

 

I bought the first one on an auction website many years ago and I forgot the details of this pen.  Can anyone tell me what model it is?  What I recall is it was made of cotton resin.

The second one was given to me by my uncle, by then I was not so into fountain pen and had no idea what Omas was at all... :P

 

I have tried to look up more information about this pen but did not succeed.  Is this kind of special edition of Omas x Zenith?  From the smell of pen body the material appears to be celluloid.

Welcome your insight.

Your first pen looks like a Bologna, probably the cheaper c/c version.

 

your second pen is a special edition based on the 360 series. Starting from the 1990s, OMAS made numerous special editions for other high quality producers. This apparently is one for the Swiss luxury watchmaker Zenith. Excellent find!

Thanks for your replies !

Knowing the Zenith one is an Omas 360 variation, I have surfed further on the web and just found that it should be made of cotton resin instead of celluloid. :P

The cap is clearly transparent. It look like acrylic more than cotton resin.

Yes, the first pen is a Bologna. You can tell from the arches on the nib.
Not evident in the photo, whether it is black or a very dark blue, in the latter case it's probably an Omas Bologna Pearl Blue.
