A Clarification:
I bought the pen from a retailer who advertised its colour as 'Night Sky Blue', but I recently found the box in which the pen was shipped.
Parker appears to have referred to the colour as 'Navy Blue'.

A Warning:
I have owned this pen since 2013, and I customarily post the cap on the back of the pen, as in this photo.

Last time I used it, much to my annoyance I found that posting the cap had, over the years, worn off a small patch of the pen's lacquer, directly in line with the nib.

One can now see the brass of the body starting to show-through the lacquer 😢

So, if you, too, have an Urban with a lacquered finish whose colour you like, be very careful to check that you aren't wearing it away!
