Tibaldi Order of Malta Collection - Sterling Silver Rollerball Pen
Numbered Limited edition of 250
The Tibaldi Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM) Sterling Silver Rollerball Pen is a precious work of art, finely etched with a pattern reproducing the coat of mail in medieval armors. The cap also features a sleek image of a Maltese knight at the back, above a discreet engraving panel, allowing personalization with end-user's name or initials. The most famous symbol associated to the Order, the Maltese cross, decorates the barrel. It is hand-painted by our skilled artist, Lorena Straffi. The sterling silver trim, offers a nice contrast with the carnelian stone adorning the cap's ornament.
The tie-shaped clip is reminiscent of TIBALDI pens from the early 1900s, but its sophisticated snap mechanism and roller make it easier to insert into a pocket. Thanks to extensive engineering research and laboratory testing, the clip is mounted on the ring, rather than on the cap. The clip as well as every other element is carved with the help of advanced computer-operated lathe and milling machines.
JEWELER'S FINISHED TRIM
The Clou de Paris, consisting of repeating pyramid patterns, is an ancient decorative design, existing since the 16th century. In the 18th century, it was introduced into the watch industry as an elegant way to hide scratches and extend the life of metal surfaces. Each face of the pyramid is processed on two axes, resulting in a design with a high visual impact resembling a diamond shape and similarly reflecting the light. The work is extremely difficult and requires high-precision technology and instruments. The name most likely comes from the basalt stones used to pave Parisian cobblestone streets.
All the precious metal Clou de Paris components are produced and galvanized in Switzerland, the country responsible for producing the world's finest watches. Each part is inspected and hallmarked by the Swiss Federal Customs Office for the Control of Precious Metals in Geneva, a guarantee of the origin and high quality of the materials and finish. The Swiss hallmark is the only procedure of its type recognized all over the world.
These superb writing instruments are cased in elegant wooden boxes finished with glossy red lacquer and inlaid with a mother-of-pearl Maltese cross on the lid.
