Fall Preview: Parker Sonnet Great Expectations Special Edition



**Update as of September 2016 - we're currently only accepting special orders on certain Visconti and Namiki pens. Email info@gouletpens.com for more information.**


We got excited when we saw these brand new finishes for the Parker Sonnet fountain pen coming out this fall. We haven't decided yet to carry the line, but wanted to get your feedback first before making a decision. We started carrying the Parker IM and Parker Urban in their new finishes last year, and the Sonnet would be a big step up in our Parker offering.

So as you look over these colors and prices, please let us know what you think! We'd love to know if you'd like to see us carry these, as well as any past experience you've had with a Parker Sonnet fountain pen. All of these new finishes are cartridge/converter pens with gold nibs.

Without further ado, here is a quick preview of the 6 new colors coming out for the Parker Sonnet this fall, as part of the Special Edition Parker Sonnet Great Expectations line....


Subtle Pearl & Grey

An understated color palette of greys and pearl whites for a chic, feminine finish. It features a pearl lacquer barrel, grey pearlescent lacquer cap, pearl anodized aluminum grip section, rose gold trim, and an 18kt solid gold nib with a rose gold finish. Available in fine and medium, at an MSRP of $320 (our price would be $256).


Subtle Big Red
Revisiting the iconic Big Red, Parker’s emblematic symbol of the roaring 1920’s, this design gives a subtle hint of this familiar color against a black gloss finish. This fountain pen features a deep black lacquer barrel and cap, black anodized aluminum grip section, ruthenium clip, anodized red aluminum finished accents, and an 18kt solid gold nib with a ruthenium finish. Available in fine and medium, at an MSRP of $320 (our price would be $256).


Secret Shell Black
A refined, black exterior surprisingly reveals a striking chevron pattern inside. It features a black matte barrel and cap, a ruthenium laser etched stainless steel grip section, ruthenium finished trim, and an 18kt solid gold nib with a ruthenium finish. Available in fine and medium, at an MSRP of $320 (our price would be $256).


Secret Shell Blue
A sophisticated blue exterior surprisingly reveals an intricate interwoven pattern inside. This fountain pen features a blue matte barrel and cap, a ruthenium laser etched stainless steel grip section, ruthenium finished trim, and an 18kt solid gold nib with a ruthenium finish. Available in fine and medium, at an MSRP of $320 (our price would be $256).


Contort Purple Cisele
A carefully crafted cap with matching, purple brushed-look grip is a new, stylish take on the classic pearl lacquer. This tasteful design is luxurious yet sophisticated. It features a pearl lacquer barrel, unique chiselled and lacquered sterling silver cap, purple anodized aluminum grip, rose gold finished trim, and an 18kt solid gold nib with a rose gold finish. Available in fine and medium, at an MSRP of $510 (our price would be $408).


Contort Black Cisele
A contorted square cisele on the cap brings an authoritative yet stylish design. The finely crafted cap and elegant, smooth body introduces a new look for the Sonnet black pen. This fountain pen features a black matte barrel, black matte cap with laser chiselling, stainless steel grip, palladium finished trim, and an 18kt solid gold nib with a ruthenium finish. Available in fine and medium, at an MSRP of $510 (our price would be $408).


So tell us what you think! If you KNOW you want one of these now, you can email specialorders@gouletpens.com and we'll go ahead and pre-order you one, regardless of our decision to regularly stock the line. And if you're not ready yet, would any of these pens be on your must-buy list this fall?

**Update as of September 3** We've decided not to stock these as a regular item and they are not available via special order. Sorry!
