Samo is the newest Omas limited edition, which represents a tribute between the cultures of the East and West. It celebrates the origin of ideas from the 6th century BC when the island of Samos was at the peak of its role as a point of exchange of goods. Samo, a fountain pen by Omas, underlines the first steps of the visual signs left by the Hellenic civilisation combining luxury, culture and design. The clip, elongated beyond the cap and bearing the engravings of Omas and Samo, represents the idealised bridge uniting East and West. Made in a numbered certified limited edition of 572 pieces in solid silver; 572 represents the birth year of the famous Samos son, Pythagoras. Also available in solid Rose Gold with diamonds on the clip – 14 pieces. Price: US$3,400
