Guilloches - ornamental patterns of fine, engraved lines - originally adorned precious watches and accessories such as the legendary Fabergé eggs. Graf von Faber-Castell uses this traditional jewelling technique to transform the writing instruments in the Guilloche series into true pieces of jewelry: The precious resin barrel is given a filigree pattern line by line and then further refined in manual lacquering and polishing processes. Barrel made of guilloched precious resin. Metal parts with titanium PVD coating. Solid, spring-loaded clip. Handmade, 18-carat gold nib with ruthenium coating run in by hand. Cartridge-converter system, converter included. Overall dimension: Length 5.7" x .5" . Weight: 1.55 oz. Elegant gift box included.
