CARAN D’ACHE LIMITED EDITION

LIMITED EDITION

Swiss manufacturer of pencils, fine arts materials and luxury writing instruments paid tribute to Switzerland with the creation of a limited edition pen incorporating elements of the nation’s cultural identity.

LIMITED EDITIONCreated in collaboration with a Swiss jewellery craftsman, this limited edition celebrates Swiss traditions through a series of figurative images sculpted on the body of these writing instruments.

LIMITED EDITIONThe Spirit of Switzerland writing instruments are highly symbolical creations. Figures in relief sculpted in solid silver on the black matt body of the pens represent elements of Swiss culture: lush high pastures, majestic mountain peaks, the immaculate whiteness of Edelweiss, the deep notes of the Alpine horn, the warm wood of the chalets, the famous melted cheese dishes… so many images that are engraved forever in the memory of those who admire Switzerland’s unique heritage.

The writing instruments of this Limited Edition all integrate a beautiful jewel of the mountains, used as an ornament since antiquity: a cabochon of rutile quartz, set on the tip of the cap. This pure rock crystal is incrusted with needles of rutile touched with gold that produce shimmering reflections. The color and arrangement of these inclusions have earned it the name “Hair of Venus” the symbolic protector of love and life.

The Spirit of Switzerland is limited to 100 numbered fountain pens and roller pens, intended for lovers of rare and beautiful objects. It is available in shops specializing in luxury fine writing instruments from March 2015.
