New Model: Lamy Dialog Cc (Scheduled For September?)



Lilla-My

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I just saw in a store catalogue some images of the coming Lamy dialog cc (due for September).

Is there any info on the Internet?

 

There’ll be two colours (if I remember correctly), one white and one dark blue; also the Lamy logo will be on a rose-gold coloured rectangle near the nib.

It’s basically a shorter dialog – something that isn’t for those who are used to using their fountain pen posted.

A new Dialog pen with retractable nib ,shorter in size and maybe a little thinner will be a nice addition to the retractable pens in the market. :yikes:

The store owner got to hold a pre-series model in the hand, so I asked about the diameter, but it doesn’t seem to be thinner.

Also, I think the Lamy logo serves as a roll-stop.

Personally, the roll-stop is perhaps a bit too much aesthetically wise, but overall it seemed pretty sleek and more modern than the dialog 3.

I might be convinced by this model.

 

On a side note, at the end of the catalogue, there’s a teasing of a new writing instrument – close-up near the clip.

Are there any images online? Id be super interested in that. I LOVE my pico ballpoint pen and sometimes wish my dialog were a bit smaller.

Not last time I checked. I suppose Lamy would not appreciate a photo of the catalogue; unless it’s what they want?

This is the image from the catalogue.

 

Great.

There were also some close-ups, if I remember correctly.

 

Do you happen to have more information, like the price?

I've always been enticed by the Dialog, but found it too long and too heavy. But this image really tempts me, and if it is shorter than the Dialog, I think I'll buy one or both.

Thats really cool! I salute Lamy for consistently developing new and compelling pen designs!

 

Thanks for posting! :)

Thank you @ljz for sharing the photo :P

 

The holeless nib looks like the Lamy Imporium Z57 which suggests pricing more toward premium luxury Pilot Capless LS and less so in the range of affordable workhorse, Platinum Curidas. :rolleyes:

 

I can see some marketing sense there going for the high end as they are doing well by the Z50 nib lines of Safaris, Studios, LXs, etc

 

But who knows maybe Lamy will retract price to the mid-range into Lamy 2000 territory and that would extend more wallets :thumbup:

 

They could just paint it Bauhaus blue for the higher end stuff :happyberet:

Pilot Capless LS is way too expensive with just a little “improvement” on its retract mechanism. A friend of mine who have bought it a few weeks ago advised me to rather save the money. :roller1:

 

I’m in my twenties and already have had hard times in distinguishing black and blue Lamy 2000 in my dimly lit study. It’s like the more I use the blue one, the darker its colour gets. A bad decision to get the Blue Bauhaus? I don’t know. Or should I take it out often for perambulations in the sun, so as to admire its dark blue / navy blue? :eureka:

Reminds me of the early scetches of the Lamy Pico Rollerball, which was obviously a retractable fountain pen in the earliest concepts.

Nope - just checked my copy of Thinking Tools - their official history. The Pico was always going to be a pocket ballpoint pen, however it was designed by the same person who did the original Dialog 3 (Franco Clivio)

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
