Why Do The Clips On Japanese Pens Attach Below The Finial Ring?

Why do the clips of Japanese pens hang below the finial ring? On Montblanc Meisterstucks, for instance, the clip is attached the finial ring. But on similar Japanese pens, like the Sailor 1911, Platinum 3776, and Pilot Custom series, it looks like the clip is punched into the cap below the finial ring, making the ring purely decorative. This makes less sense and is less aesthetically pleasing to me, but maybe I’m missing something. Is there a reason for it?

On a Montblanc Meisterstuck, it's not that the trim ring is attached to the clip, but that the trim ring *is* the clip. The trim ring is used to mount the clip onto the cap.

 

Clips on Japanese pens, by contrast, are often mounted inside the cap. One type of clip can therefore be used both on pens with a trim ring and untrimmed urushi pens.

Gotcha. This makes sense.
