Personally handmade in my shop, I used the parts from a retired European Family Watch Panhard F12 wrist watch that has been disassembled and embedded the dial with the small parts into the body of the pen. I use a carbon fiber black background. In good lighting, the carbon fiber makes the watch parts and dial appear 3 dimensional. It is then cast in clear resin, turned to shape on a lathe, sanded and polished. The watch dial will have minor imperfections as it is from a retired watch, but this one is near perfect. This is a one-of-a-kind pen not to be duplicated.
This pen has the most highly detailed design possible with an exceptional amount of watch parts embedded into it. Compare to the other watch parts pens and you can see the difference. A variety of real watch pieces, both larger and smaller, cover most of the pen body. Significantly more effort to make due to all the pieces needing modifications to wrap around the pen body. The watch hour and minute hands have been preserved and embedded into the pen watch face.
This is a fountain pen. The fountain uses standard International size cartridge refills, or you can use a converter (not included) to use the bottled ink of your color and characteristics choice. It uses a medium #6 German made iridium tip nib. I include 5 cartridges and a gift box. I can also change the nib assembly to rollerball at no extra charge. The rollerball uses a standard German Schmidt cartridge, or other brand rollerball cartridges made to the same standard. Fountain and rollerball cartridges are available at your local office supply stores or here at Mission City Pens. Please let me know if you want rollerball, other wise it will be sent as a fountain pen as listed.
The premium metal components are finished in titanium gold and platinum for long wear. These are the hardest metals available for custom pen designs and will provide a lifetime durability. The darker accent ends and center band are black titanium and the remainder are platinum. Collector pen rating. The cap is not postable on the other end due to the size and weight of this collector grade pen.
Approximate length 5 3/4", width 3/4", weight 2.9 oz.
I have a selection of other similar watch parts pens available. Quality and craftsmanship guaranteed. I have been designing custom fine writing instruments since 2006. Experience counts.
Thanks for looking. I appreciate it.
