Aero Ballpoint pen by Diplomat is the latest award winning pen from a genuine old-school European pen company. It’s a dignified deluxe pen for a power situation.
This is literally the ‘grooviest pen’ to be released by this very traditional company. The Diplomat Aero ballpen has the distinctive fluting of the Zeppelins. This, along with the matte finish, makes the Aero easier to grip than many pens. The aluminium body also makes Aero light for its size. More-so because Diplomat’s eight petal flower logo sits atop the pen, looking like a propeller ready to take off.
Diplomat Aero is inspired by the centenary of the famed air-filled Zeppelin Airships. Prior to a rather sticky demise, Zeppelins were the darlings of the Art Deco world (for example, the spire of the Empire State Building was originally intended as a mooring mast for Zeppelins). *
The Diplomat Pen company was founded in Germany in 1922 by Herr Carl Rauchleand the pens are still made in the original factory.
Diplomat pens are the quiet achievers of the prestige pen world, and have long adhered to time honoured traditions of German precision and craftsmanship. So too with the Aero : it’s a beautifully balanced cap-less twist ballpoint pen, and has a famed Schmidt Easyflow refill – with the appealing feature of writing like a rollerball, but doing so longer, and without drying out.
The Diplomat Aero Ballpoint Pen comes gift boxed – beautifully nestled in its own satin bed.
