Incoming Omas Extra Arco Bronze from 1996.

Hi, first time in the FP section.

I wanted to present to you this beautiful fountain pen that is mine a few days ago, it is from 1996, it has been sold to me by a good collector friend who needed the money for other matters. This FP made me immensely happy, the material with which it is made, is a BEAUTY.

The biggest surprise was when I wrote with this OMAS, the nib is an M but it is more like a B, it's soft, wet and fabulous for long hours of writing. I all my life write with FP, but I'm new in the world of FP collection or knowledge, I know very very little, all I can say is that the Omas is the most beautiful pen I have seen. Please enjoy some pictures and give me your opinion.

I’ve collected pens an watches for a while now. I bought one of these beautiful pens a few years ago. Probably the most beautiful pen I own. Even when I’m not writing with it I take it out to look at it.
Congratulations on picking one up.

Man, that thing is beautiful. You’re so lucky to have gotten it! Especially since there is only a finite number of them now. Enjoy it!

I’ve always wanted an arco bronze pen, but I’m afraid that if I got it I wouldn’t do much writing with it because I’d be mesmerized by it every time I picked it up! I could stare at it for hours!

Jejeje is true! Is a treasure for me, a grail pen, I would like to get a ASC Bologna Arco Bronze because the arco brown celluloid is marvelous!! but is a lot of money, may be someday.

The brown Arco is a gorgeous pen and is my favorite Omas as well as being my favorite pen. My wife gave one to me as a wedding gift and I feel very lucky to have it. I've always felt that Omas made the best writing pens and it's a shame they are no longer in business. Enjoy it!
