The Caran d’Ache 1010 Chrono Sport Silver Rollerball Pen pays tribute to the chronograph and to all outstanding athletes with this Limited Edition dedicated to all those in search of perfection.
The Caran d'Ache 1010 represents a unique encounter between Fine Watchmaking and Fine Writing. The master craftsmen of the Geneva Maison de Haute Ecriture have again extended their expertise to create a limited edition in the 1010 Pen Collection devoted to all those who love sports or enjoy a challenge: the 1010 Chrono Sport. This Fine Writing Instrument combines a pure sporting aesthetic with the excellent manufacturing standards of the Swiss Made label.
With an astonishing interplay of depth and volume, the two cages that constitute the body of the 1010 Chrono Sport Pen evoke the wheels and gear trains in the movement of a watch. On the skeleton fuselage, three delicate engravings suggest the counters and the decoration of the bridges, while the black inner chassis depicts the gear train of a high-performance chronograph, with one wheel meticulously hand-painted in red. The ring, like the bezel of a watch, carries luminescent hour markers visible in the darkest of nights. The cap, coated with velvety black lacquer, is fluted like a watch crown, giving the impression of a streamlined racing body. The clip, in the form of a watch hand, is topped by a sparkling ruby.
The Fountain Pen, set with a ruby, has a piston pump finished in black, soft-touch mat lacquer. The nib, in 18-carat, rhodium-coated gold, is polished by hand and offers a supple and unmatched level of writing precision that testifies to the expertise of Caran d'Ache craftsmen.Material:
