Eternal Ice - 2011

Eternal Ice - 2011

"Unforgettable Moments - Inspired by the Forces of Nature."

There are certainly more comfortable places on our earth but few offer such spectacular impressions as the Arctic desert regions. The eternal ice of the Arctic North Pole and the Antarctic South Pole are among the most extreme habitats and most sensitive climate zones on earth. During the long and very cold polar winter, the sun does not cross the horizon for weeks and temperatures fall as low as 80 degrees below zero. The polar night at either pole lasts several months during which time the skies remain entirely dark. During the polar summer, the seemingly errant sun suddenly reappears, however it is foggy and temperatures remain low. There is no doubt that at both ends of the world flora and fauna coexist under very demanding conditions and only the very strongest survive. The relentless cold provides perfect conditions for the million-year-old ice, which has been frozen for an eternity.

Just as every place in nature is unique, so too is the art of personal letter writing. The Eternal Ice range has been designed to enable its owner to experience an unforgettable feeling for their personal handwriting, whilst paying homage to one of the most impressive natural phenomena on the planet.

The Special Edition Eternal Ice is made of the finest materials. Each crafted pen is multicolored, lacquered with a high gloss polished metal shaft and further enhanced with elaborate palladium laser engraving. It flows into the ice blue-colored precious resin components of the front part and the ink handle. The 18 carat gold nib with rhodium trim is exquisitely formed, polished and diligently run in by a master’s hand.

The series Eternal Ice was released in the year 2011 and was of limited availability.

Indian Summer - 2009

Indian Summer - 2009

"Glowing Red Play of Colors."

Experiencing an Indian Summer is unique. The autumn trees change their colors and glow in breathtaking yellows, oranges, reds and ochres. This special wonder of nature is also called autumn foliage and is particularly colorful in New England and Canada. It begins in August in parts of Alaska and on the mountainsides of Canada and continues until November, spreading across almost all of the United States. This unrivaled play of colors is especially pronounced in the Berkshires, the mountainous region in the far west of Massachusetts. This magical natural event is triggered by unseasonably mild weather. The first night chilled by frost can, with the late summer sun, quickly warm to a comfortable 20 degree Celsius during the day. The term Indian Summer seems to have its roots in the proud culture of the native Americans. It describes their love of bold colors and the final hunting season before the onset of winter, when the warm temperatures tempt the animals out of their quarters one last time.

The special edition Indian Summer is made of the finest materials. Each crafted pen is multicolored, lacquered with a high gloss polished metal shaft and further enhanced with elaborate silver engraving. The beautiful coloration flows to a dark brown and features high-grade resin components on the front part and the ink handle. The 18 carat gold nib with rhodium trim is formed masterfully, polished and carefully run in by a master’s hand.

This special edition was available as a fountain pen, a ballpoint pen and rollerball.
The series Indian Summer was released in 2009 and was of limited availability.

Mount Everest - 2008

Mount Everest - 2008

"Unique and Spectacular - Just Like the World’s Highest Mountain."

The highest mountain on Earth originated, like the entire Himalayas mountain range, from the collision of the Indian with the Eurasian continental plate. This process began approx. 50 million years ago, and even today Mount Everest grows several millimeters as a result of the movement of the continents. It reaches a majestic 8,850 meters into the heavens. It is one of the Seven Summits, which include the highest mountain on each of the seven continents. Its climate is very extreme, with temperatures in the coldest month dropping down to -60 °C. When the south-western jet stream slams against the summit, wind speeds of up to 285 kilometers per hour occur. Enormous snowfalls of up to 3 meters daily are not uncommon and an ascent is only possible during one of the rare windows, which provide more or less stable weather. The New Zealander Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa Tenzing Norgay were the first to reach the top on May 29, 1953. This event was celebrated internationally as the conquest of the third pole. Around 3,680 ascents have been recorded to date.

The Special Edition Mount Everest is crafted of the finest materials. The distinctive barrel features a metal shaft with a complex engraving and specially created gold plated mountain formation element. Its representation flows into the anthracite-colored precious resin components of the front part and the ink handle. The 18 carat gold nib with rhodium trim is designed, masterfully crafted and polished meticulously by a master’s hand.

The series Mount Everest was released in 2008 and was of limited availability.

Polar Lights - 2008

Polar Lights - 2008

"Mysterious Lights in the Night Sky."

When the sky in the northern and southern latitudes is illuminated by mystic lights in surreal shades, the polar lights enchant the dark winter nights. Before science discovered that the brilliant bands of light in the night sky were solar winds, one conjectured messages of the gods and prophecies behind the natural phenomenon: the Vikings saw them as signs of a victorious battle, while for people in the Middle Ages, polar lights, like comets, were omens of threatening events in the future. The natural phenomena occur when electrically charged particles from a solar eruption meet with the atmosphere of the earth and are steered toward the poles by the magnetic field of the earth. Polar lights in the northern latitudes are called the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis. The light occurrences in the southern hemisphere are known as the Southern Lights or Aurora Australis.

The Special Edition Polar Lights is made of the finest materials. The focal point is the metal shaft with its complex, multi-colored varnish, the silvercolored elements of which consist of a platinum alloy. It flows into the deep black precious resin components of the front part and the ink handle. The 18 carat gold nib with rhodium trim is formed masterfully, polished and diligently run in by a master’s hand.

The Polar Lights series was released in 2008 and had a limited availability.

Sahara - 2007

Sahara - 2007

"The Desert Tells Its Tales."

Sand visible as far as the eye can see. Every individual grain of sand in the Sahara has a story to tell. It is the triturated time of mountainous massifs, seas, rivers or the ice age. With nine million square kilometers (circa 3.5 milion square miles), the Sahara is the largest dry desert on the planet and stretches from the Atlantic to the Red Sea. It came into being three billion years ago and has been fooded at least eight times in the course of time. Even in this current day, dry riverbeds can be found in the landscape - a sign that water must have once flown there. However, only 10 % of the Sahara is a sandy desert. Many large areas are covered by boulders, salt marshes, gravel desert and mountain ranges such as the Hoggar and the Tibesti mountains. On three quarters of the desert surface, there is no vegetation; the rest consists of veldt, in which plants and animals have adjusted themselves to extreme conditions. During the day, it‘s dry and reaches up to 55 degrees. Oases that consist of around 200,000 square kilometers (circa 77,000 square miles) of surface provide living conditions for roughly two million people.

The special edition Sahara is made of the finest materials. The focal point is the metal shaft with its sand-wave structure. The filigree elements are modeled by a sophisticated guilloche, are gilded and are provided with several coats of lacquer coating. They flow into the precious resin components of the front part and ink handle. The 18 carat gold nib with rhodium trim is formed masterly, polished and diligently run in by a master‘s hand.

The piston pump fountain pen has an 18-carat gold nib with rhodanized decoration, masterfully formed, polished and carefully run in by a master’s hand. The ball-point pen is fitted with a twist mechanism and an international standard largevolume cartridge. The exclusive roller-ball also delivers the look of ink handwriting with its smooth, comfortable action.

The Sahara series was released in the year 2007 and had a limited availability.

Niagara Falls - 2007

Niagara Falls - 2007

"Breathtakingly Spectacular."

When the last ice age ended 12,000 years ago, North America's glaciers created a tremendous amount of melt-water which caused Lake Erie to flood. The newly formed Niagara river flows over the hard dolomite rock of the Niagara Escarpment rock formation towards the north and connects Lake Erie with Lake Ontario. On the border between the USA and Canada, the water masses collide together, separated by the Goat Island, almost 60 meters deep. On the US American side, the waterfall has a width of app.360 meters; the so-called horseshoe on the Canadian side has a length of app. 790 meters. As a special geological phenomenon, the waterfall nears Lake Erie by almost two meters every year due to the erosion process. In the course of thousands of years, it has already laid back eleven kilometers. The Niagara Falls are now famous worldwide and attract more then 18 million visitors to the region every year.

The special edition Niagara Falls is constructed with the finest of materials. The focal point is the metal shaft whose silver-colored elements consist of an elaborate Rhodium alloy. The fountain pen components manufactured of noble resin glimmer in water blue. The piston pump fountain pen has an 18-carat gold nib with rhodanized decoration, masterfully formed, polished and carefully run in by a master’s hand. The ball-point pen is fitted with a twist mechanism and an international standard largevolume cartridge. The exclusive roller-ball also delivers the look of ink handwriting with its smooth, comfortable action.

The Niagara Falls series was released in the year 2007 and had a limited availability.
