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

Recommended Posts

I should have turned the pages further - apologies (I thought I did - perhaps the pages stuck - the next item in the book is the Dialog 3). I looked at pages 1-4 in the chapter (2 & 4 are just pictures), missed page 5 and 6 - the next page is the Dialog 3

:lticaptd: I just looked at the site and deactivated NoScript in Firefox. With Javascript there is a picture overlapping the one I posted and the nib isn't visible. Who knows what went wrong when you read it.

Was looking through the actual book - hence the pages possibly sticking ;)

TBH while the book is interesting it is also very dry and took a long time to complete. Reason almost certainly is because it's mainly the various info pieces put alongside the pictures at the actual exhibition.

I had considered the Dialog several times, but I knew it would be too heavy for me. This looks like an acceptable alternative. I will have to keep watch out for this.

I have a Dialog 3 and I like it except for its inability to keep the nib from drying out for more than a couple of days. I wonder if there are any mechanical improvements along those lines in the Dialog cc. I will be waiting with interest for when I can take a look at it in person. Maybe there will be some at the SF Pen Show (assuming it goes forward) at the end of August. Or I can wait and see it in the SF Lamy store.

I’ve two dialogs. Both nibs dry out within a few days of non-use.

Was yours the original design or the update? Never had a problem with mine though they had redone the sealing mechanism (newer version has the ink windows on the cartridge/converter bracket).

Problem I had with mine was it being carried around attached by the slip to a travel journal in my pocket. Clip was starting to be pushed to one side, but more importantly the bouncing round would start to cause the nib unit to come loose and start to rotate round.

Wow this looks good, always felt the Dialogue 3 was too long and heavy.

 

Any idea when will this release? Is it planned for September officially?

Lamy's marketing team confirmed to me a couple of weeks ago that they currently plan a September launch.

Exciting! Something to look forward to :) and would be even better if they supported the Z27 converter and hopefully took a page from Platinum with some slip & seal dry out prevention :P

Sorry, I didn't see this response before. Mine does have the ink windows as you describe them, so I assume it is the newer improved version. I have found as I inked it up this time that my drying out problems went away when I used a very wet ink (in this case, The Blues from Papier Plume). So it is back in my good graces. I'm still potentially interested in the new one.

With the wetter ink in my Dialog 3, I got about five A4 pages over six weeks before it ran out of ink. I don't know if that's reasonable or not, I've never tried to keep track before. It seems to be about the same as I got from a large lever fill pen.

 

Still looking forward to checking out the new model though. If the SF pen show comes off at the end of August, as the plan currently is, maybe they'll have something there for folks to see, if not buy.

Just got some news that the release may be delayed due to the current crisis. Hope Lamy is able to stick to 2020 timeline though!

Super! Thanks for the video; looks like they are floating on a hold pattern waiting to be delivered to mailboxes worldwide!

Over on Lamy’s PR site, I found this as part of their overly word-crafted, weasel infested corporate nonsense:

 

>>> In 2019, Lamy once again continued to focus on the themes of brand experience and sharpening its lifestyle profile. (snipped) In 2020 Lamy plans to launch three new series at once, which will further advance the premium positioning of the brand. The LAMY dialog cc, a new variant of the capless twist-action fountain pen LAMY dialog, deserves special mention. Equipped with the same ingenious twist mechanism as the LAMY dialog, the new LAMY dialog cc is smaller and more delicate and offers numerous possibilities for use thanks to its handy size. In addition, LAMY ideal is a completely new product family to expand the range. Designed by EOOS, it interprets the proven Lamy design principles in an innovative way. The third Lamy innovation is the LAMY xevo ballpoint pen designed by Eric Degenhardt and characterised by a minimalist, reduced design.

I ride a recumbent, I play go, I use Macintosh so of course I use a fountain pen.

Offers numerous possibilities for use? Besides writing, what do they have in mind?

Thank you for the information! I wonder what the Lamy ideal will be. It doesnt even say if it will be a pen.

Hey they designed Wittgenstein's fingerprint http://www.eoos.com/cms/index.php?id=69#

 

so now I'm thinking that cc does not stand for cartridge/converter :lol:

 

LAMY dialog cc - what does it all mean? (MB lifestyle upsell business playbook)

 

Too high brow concept for me, i just see purdy pokey stick that writes :P

 

I'm going to guess this lands around $250USD including the numerous possibilities or $175 for just the pen. :D

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      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
