The fountain pen is a symbolic luxury object designed to appeal to the daily or occasional user, the simply curious, the connoisseur and the collector alike. Locked for centuries in an endless cycle of popular or stylistic reinterpretations, it has rediscovered its true worth with Richard Mille. The Swiss brand is transforming it into a pure product of watchmaking by virtue of a mechanical movement as complex as any RM calibre.
Developed by the brand’s movement creators, the pen took almost four years to research and develop before emerging as an exceptional, highly technological, one-of-a-kind object. The movement is based on a skeletonised baseplate and bridges made of grade 5 titanium.
This 12-jewel caliber powers a captivating display of kinematics mechanics that releases the white gold nib.
By creating this mechanical pen for its clientele, Richard Mille has revisited an emblematic object which, like the brand itself, has transformed its world. The piece is aimed at all those who harbour a love for beautiful handwriting and great Swiss watchmaking mechanisms.
