Cross Chinese Year of the Dragon Special Edition
August 10, 2011 § 1 Comment
Every now and then one of the mainstream pen manufacturers creates a really special ‘Special Edition’ and unusually, it’s Cross this time. Based on the Sauvage profile, the Chinese Year of the Dragon, 2012, is being celebrated with this beautiful, deep-etched, gold plated, lacquered pen. Deep-etched through the black or translucent red lacquer to the gold beneath, the Chinese dragon drapes itself around the barrel, across the joint onto the cap with perfect alignment. The pens are supplied in a sumptuous display case with an integral display plinth for showing-off the pen in a cabinet or in pride of place on the desk. These pens are available in either fountain pen, rollerball or ballpoint. However, there is limited stocks with only 800 units being made available in the UK.
The Chinese Dragon pen will be supplied with a dedicated 18ct gold nib on the fountain pen with converter and cartridge options. The rollerball is designed using Cross’s unique Selectip rolling ball system with 2 alternative refill formats being available. The ballpoint will use Cross’s proprietary ballpoint refill. We believe that pricing will be at £300, £250 and £200 respectively.
Full details and final specification will be published on PenFountain.com on the pen’s release and when stock is avaialble
We understand that the Dragon Pen will be released towards the end of September 2011. Please email your interest and we will keep you informed as to progress. firstname.lastname@example.org
