Earlier we have introduced you to world’s most-expensive pen for $730,000 and also made you familiar with the Namikis 18-carat-gold nib pen, now its time to update the list of most-elite pens, which have become a more of an accessory.
Swiss luxury stationery maker Caran d’Ache displayed its pricey “1010” fountain pen in Tokyo market on 17 October. With a demanding cost of $174,000 (20 million yen), this pen is festooned with 18-karat gold and studded with a diamond and a ruby. The company produced only 10 limited edition models with one piece made available for the Japanese market. It is Kelvin Tan’s passion (a photographer by profession) for watches and beautiful pens that drove him across newly opened Caran d’Ache boutique in the shopping mall of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Singapore welcomed the pen with full generosity on 10/10/07 (coincidence). The expertise used to produce such elite pens is worth applauding, as the competent market is ready to beat with its emerging products. Also, the pen is loaded with minutiae that can be associated to fine perfunctory watches.
