Mickey is the star of this custom steampunk art style pen. A real Mickey Mouse wrist watch is disassembled and the parts including the watch face dial is curved to match the curvature of the pen. The Mickey watch hour and minute hands are also included.
Gears and the watch face are attached to a chemically treated foil that has multi colored effects as it is held and moved in the light. The parts attached to the body are cast in clear resin. I then turn it to shape on a lathe, sand and polish to a glass-like clear finish.
Mostly a blue and green color, but bright silvers, gold and a reddish color can been seen in varying light. It resembles Abalone characteristics in appearance. Lots of glitter-like iridescence in which fine colors, changeable with the angle of view or angle of illumination, are produced by the interference reflection. This is a stunning one-of-a-kind pen. I am not able to capture the true colors and features with a photograph.
The metal components are plated in gun metal and chrome for durability.
This is a one-of-a-kind pen creation never to be duplicated. Only one available. The pen in the photograph is what you will receive.
The pen operates with a simple twist. The refill is a standard Parker compatible type available at larger office supply stores or on this Mission City website. Refill instructions included.
I've been handcrafting custom pens since 2005. Experience counts. Guaranteed to please.
Mickey Mouse is a trademarked Item. This pen was made with a licensed watch repurposed into a pen. Mickey Mouse and it's parent company have no association with this pen, the distribution, sales or warranty.
