The “Arte Italiana Collection” is a tribute to the original twelve faceted model designed by Armando Simoni in 1930, made with modern materials and finish. The design resembles a twelve sided Doric column, and provide a precise grip to enhance the pleasure of writing. The Arte Italiana Collection is the perfect combination of refinement and practicality.
The Arco Verde is crafted from precious celluloid and available in 3 different trims; Gold, Silver or Ruthenium. The nibs grades available are Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, or Broad. The nibs are 18k Gold and are plated to match the trim. There are also some 14k gold “Extra Flessible” nibs available in various grades. Please contact your preferred retailer for availability of these nibs. The piston-filling Omas Arco Verde is limited to 80 pens in each trim worldwide. The pens are currently available at a MSRP of $995, street price of $660.
|The beauty and depth of Omas’ Arco celluloid is matched by few, if any. Combined with the old style Paragon shape (the same as in my Hands-On with the Art Deco CE) and I can only imagine that this would be like holding pure bliss. I’ve been looking to add the larger sibling to my Bronze Arco Milord and the Verde would add some color to the pen case. Excuse me, I need to go check my Paypal balance.||An interesting pen model, and that dark green precious celluloid looks absolutely stunning. I wonder what an “extra flessible” nib would be like – might that be like vintage flex? I am not too sure about the barrel threads halfway down the section, but overall, I think Omas did well here.|
