    It is Tibaldi's take on Parker's vacumatic filler. The bladder is missing in my picture above but you can see petrified remnants on that plunger thingy. I have intentionally held off on re-sacing to preserve color.

    The ink window/threading is actually a replacement by Brad Torelli. I bought it NOS but the ink window was weak and seemed badly manufactured (Mr. Torelli actually thought it was a contemporary replacement)
    That's the least one can expect from the master - threads look factory original.

    An opportunity to revive this thread since I received a cracker of a pen from a dear friend. It helped me expand my oversize Ancora collection - thanks Christof

    Lovely pens and nibs. I wonder if the StyloChap has any connection with OldChap, another French brand. Be sure you take precautions to preserve that Novum celluloid.

    These French brands are a bit esoteric for me so no idea about any links.
    Lucky me, I got both of these in mint condition other than the brassed trims. Got the usual best practice in place to avoid crazing

    The StyloChap has a nice presentation box which I probably should share here....

    Very interesting! Any explanation of this? Did Aurora make pens for them, or did they copy?
    I notice the Aurora is 2nd gen (like my green mottled one) while the Stylochap is based on the 1st gen.

    Edacoto, a French brand was known for selling rebadged/rebranded Aurora pens. So it's not unusual to find this rebadged Novum and suggest Aurora had several French tie-ups.

    I very much enjoyed the advertisement included in that article...according to which, my Novum is in emerald green.
    Can't wait for the international version of the issue to come out so I can read it.
