Caran d'Ache Caelograph Alpha Fountain Pen - Platinum Edition
Limited Edition 120 By Latitude: 45 ° N / 30 ° N / 20 ° N / 30 ° S / 20 ° S / 0 °

In its long tradition of innovation, Caran d'Ache has developed another exceptional writing instrument that demonstrates great creativity and expertise. Like inventors always searching for new solutions, the craftsmen at Caran d'Ache have worked closely with an astronomer to produce this unique instrument that explores the sky and the stars.

The Alpha limited edition of this exceptional pen, is a blend of art and science in the long and distinguished tradition of instruments that chart the sky. Each edition is available on three northern latitudes 450N (ex: Geneva), 300N (ex: Shanghai), 200N (ex. Hong Kong).

Alpha, the brightest star in a constellation. Coated in platinum, 120 pieces for each latitude, evoking the 12 constellations of the zodiac and the 12 months of the year.

Caran d’Ache proposes three latitudes (20°N, 30°N and 45°N) and offers the personalization of the pen by engraving it with the geographical coordinates of any chosen location. Each piece in the platinum-coated Alpha edition is numbered from 1 – 120 (for each of the 3 latitudes).

18k GOLD NIB: 18-carat solid gold, protected with platinum in the Alpha version. Fine engraving of the compass rose that is mounted on the tip of the pen. M, F or B width available on request. The writing block is engraved with the hour lines typically found on sundials.

RINGS: One ring carries the Caran d’Ache logo, Swiss Made and the individual number. A fixed ring is engraved with the months and days, and a mobile ring is engraved with the hours of the day.

CAP: In midnight blue Chinese lacquer impregnated with particles of aluminum, and engraved with the hour lines associated with sundials.

CLIP: In the form of a compass needle.

BODY: 51 constellations and 353 stars are delicately engraved on midnight blue Chinese lacquer impregnated with particles of aluminum. A semi-transparent sleeve is superimposed on the sky chart indicating the horizon line, the other compass points, the Zenith and the latitude. Polished to highlight the brilliance of the midnight blue lacquer. A compass rose is mounted on the tip.

INK SYSTEM: Fountain pen: Piston pump or cartridges.

INKWELL: Your Caelograph Limited Edition fountain pen is accompanied by a personalized ink bottle, with a stopper produced in the same finish as your writing instrument. Filled with "Blue Night" ink to deliver you with the best possible color intensity, it adds a deep, refined touch to the most beautiful pages.

PACKAGING: To match this outstanding technical achievement, the Caelograph provides a case enhanced by midnight blue Chinese lacquer, applied according to the strict rules of the art, capable of showing the sky. This decorative technique, which was developed in China more than 3000 years ago and handed down over the generations, requires great dexterity.
