1010 Timekeeper Limited Edition Pen by Caran d'Ache
This item is a special order and may require an extended delivery time.
The 1010 collection from the Maison Caran d’Ache celebrates the encounter between Haute Ecriture and luxury watchmaking. Two art forms inextricably linked with Swiss heritage, embodying ingenuity and technical virtuosity. After two years of research and development with Swiss watch design experts, the 1010 Timekeeper limited edition marks the second chapter in this collection, ten years after the 1010 Chrono limited edition.
The 1010 Timekeeper limited edition displays its technical dimension on the silver- and rhodium-plated body of the 500 carefully crafted pieces. Several elements of the exclusive know-how of the Maison Caran d’Ache’s master-artisans are brought together to create this unique writing instrument: guillochage, engraving, manual polishing, lacquering and PVD treatment.
