I Swear I Saw An Aurora 88 Sole

Ok. Maybe I am going crazy, but I swear I saw a post a day or two ago announcing an Aurora 88 Sole, not an Optima, but an Aurora 88. Sole. Coming this summer, $795.

 

Am I crazy? Does someone know where a link to that is?

 

Or is this one of those things that got taken down because it's not supposed to be announced yet?

I can't stop buying pens and it scares me.

I got excited until I saw the price. Since there will only be 888 pieces, I guess the street price will remain at MSRP until they are all sold.

It is possible to buy a NOS Optima Sole at half the price

And, IMO, the Optima Sole is a better looking pen. YMMV.

I like the 88 model and its good to see a new 88 release instead of optima after optima but that looks like an Ipsilon with a proper nib!

I don't like the black head on the cap and surely they could have made the piston nob yellow as well?

Oh well wait for the released model, it could change... like the Abyss did.

$895!? Lets hope that's not realized.

My wife has the Optima Sole, but I do really like the looks of this model. I have an 88 Demonstrator, which is my favorite of my Aurora pens. Love the shape and feel in hand.

Yeah, $895 is more than I paid for my LE 88 Demo with gold trim. That's a big chunk of change!!

Still. That is a crazy good looking pen, and very tempting. My precioussss... 😈

 

Thank heavens I saw this post; I was getting tempted by the Monviso but seeing this I'll hold off and wait ...
