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



Lilla-My

Recommended Posts

Here's a link to the promo video for what I assume is the "Ideal" (although it's labelled "Ideos" on the video).

(I'm more won over by the Dialog)

 

(edited to hide the link, and avoid spoilers for those who may not want to see the new pen until it arrives in stores).

Thanks for posting! Looks like a combination of previous designs - accent, studio, aion. Well see!

And those little clips at the end of the barrel... aren't those reminiscent of the CP1?

 

Despite what I said in that post, it is slowly growing on me... but I still prefer the new look of the Dialog.

I don't see a way to extend/retract the nib.

 

I think someone suggested earlier in this thread that the button near the nib (the square with the embossed logo) might trigger the nib... Maybe?!? Unless Lamy has very cleverly hidden a seam around which a part of the barrel rotates (like the current model).

The video doesn't show the button moving when the nib extends. It looks more like a roll stop like on the Pico.

Of course, yes, you're right (I was too busy watching the nib, probably).

 

I just rewatached the video: at the 3 second, 14 second, and the 32 second mark, you can clearly see the seam on both pens (more prominently on the white one). Presumably then, this will be a twist operator.

Sharp eyes. I still can't see it on my phone.

Had to wear my glasses AND watching it on a 27" monitor. I can't see anything on my phone.

 

If you're really curious, it's clearest at the 14 second mark; look at the white pen, directly below where it's top edge is passing through the hoop. The seam is directly in line with the inner ring of the hoop as it strikes the top of the pen. The seam on the blue pen is a bit to the right of that line.

 

At the 32 second mark, the seam on the white pen is about two thirds of the way between the nib and the point at which the pen hits the (right hand) screen frame.

Are we talking about the Dialog cc or the Ideo?

Lamy says this about the cc:

“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.“

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

DougC and I were talking about the Dialog. He (and originally myself as well), couldn't see a seam that indicated the point around which the twist mechanism would rotate, and thus, we were wondering how the nib would be extended. But it seems we found the seam now. Apologies to everyone else who spotted this right off the bat.

If it's the same twist mechanism, does that mean it won't be any better at keeping the nib from drying out than the Dialog 3? Because I have one of those, and it doesn't do awfully well in that department. I admit, though, that a slimmer design might feel a little better.

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

 

Why the negativity and insults?

Anything above a No.2 Pencil or a BiC Stic is just pluffery anyway.

Anything one pays above the price of those two is personal choice.

Sorry for not being clear, but that was not an insult to the pen which I like but rather the marketing of it.

 

If the same ad had a No. 2 Pencil or BiC Stic in place of the dialog cc, the sentence would be unchanged.

So basically a fountain pen version of the pico. Wish they had some type of clip for both of them.

Anyone know the status of this model? Seems like there was a lot of chatter and then ...nothing. 

 

Has this new model been seen in the wild yet? I'm eager to learn more about it or better yet get my hands on one.

      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
