As Summer comes to a close, new colors are usually brought to us by the changing of the leaves. In the pen world, new colors take the form of new pen designs. Parker has brought to us the first bushel from the harvest with a new extension from their popular and affordable IM and Urban collections.
The Parker IM and Urban collections are known for their contemporary design that honors the prestige of the Parker brand for a new generation of writers. The new Premium extension of the IM and Urban pens accomplish this goal with vibrant color and style. The cap and barrel are finished in anodized aluminum to provide a satin-like tactile feel to the metallic surface. Each color was chosen as an homage to historical Parker Pens.
I'll let our readers guess the names of each of the colors. The hint is each one of them are named after a popular, historical Parker Pen.
These will be available at our store Goldspot.com at the beginning of November. We will begin to add them to the site soon to allow pre-orders.
The Urban Premium will be available as a twist-action ballpoint pen, capped rollerball and fountain pen (in medium point only, stainless steel nib). Prices will range from $37 for the ballpoint, $46 for the rollerball and $60 for the fountain.
The IM Premium will be available as a click-top ballpoint pen, capped rollerball and fountain pen (in medium point only, stainless steel nib). Prices range from $45 for the ballpoint, $57 for the rollerball and $75 for the fountain pen. Prices indicated are MSRP. Final sale prices have yet to be determined.
In case you were wondering, these new finishes engrave fantastically and make great gifts. Below is an example of our laser engraving on the Urban fountain pen.
