Graf von Faber-Castell Pen of the Year 2017 - Vikings Platinum Edition
The new Pen of the Year tells the story of people who have had a very strong influence on our history: the Vikings
The new editiontells a story of an age and people whose deeds made a strong impression on the history of mankind. Our journey through time begins with a race of people living in the far north, who rose with breathtaking speed in the 9th century to become the greatest maritime power in the western hemisphere: the Vikings. Admired as daring masters of wind and wave, feared as ruthless invaders, valued as merchants, the Norsemen set up a trading network that linked continents, extending from Greenland in the west to the depths of Russia, from the arctic circle to the Mediterranean and the coast of North Africa.
The Maison Caran d'Ache and the horological laboratory MB&F, have combined their expertise for a unique creative odyssey: the Astrograph writing instrument.
Bound by a shared creative passion for mechanical excellence, the Maison Caran d’Ache and the youthful watch Maison MB&F have combined their expertise in developing the exceptional Astrograph writing instrument. This new creation pays tribute to the exploratory genius and childhood dreams that spark technical feats.
Creating the Astrograph was an authentic technical challenge to which the Maison Caran d’Ache teams rose with aplomb. Fine-tuning the concept called for four years of gestation and fruitful exchanges, while an entire year was devoted to developing the final model. More than 500 manual operations were involved in its production in the workshops of the Geneva-based Manufacture.
The Souverän Stresemann is dedicated to the foreign minister of the Weimar Republic, Gustav Stresemann (1879- 1929), who was honored together with his French colleague Aristide Briand with the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1926. The Stresemann suit is named after Gustav Stresemann. The classical Stresemann suit consists of a black/grey striped trousers and a single row jacket in black or anthracite. The Souverän of Pelikan is popularly known as „Stresemann“, that´s why Pelikan named the new Souverän black-anthracite after Gustav Stresemann.
Pelikan The Statue of Zeus Limited Edition
Inspired by ancient architecture, the Limited Edition piston fountain pen has been made with care and extreme attention to detail. Pelikan has used valuable 18 carat rose gold for the embellishments. Using painstaking artistic processing, the motif of Zeus has been worked into the barrel in 925 sterling silver, and finally all decorative elements have been plated with 18 carat gold in an electroplating bath. To finish, the motif and decorative elements had a clear varnish applied in order for the background to be colored with anthracite tones.
To create a gentle transition to the rose gold and emulate the ivory of the statue, Pelikan uses precious resin in a creamy white color for the grip section, filling handle section and lid. The decorative elements such as the trademark Pelikan beak clip and the decorative rings, as well as the pièce de résistance – the 18 carat nib – are all plated with rose gold. With this new Limited Edition piece, Pelikan once again creates a superior piston fountain pen which renews a closeness and proximity to writing. Each one of the 300 writing instruments is a unique one-off produced in Germany. Thanks to their firstclass craftsmanship and exclusive look and feel, they pay an exceptional tribute to this world wonder.
