CARTIER: Santos de Cartier Limited Edition Ballpoint Pen
Long renowned for its fine watches and incomparable jewelry designs, Cartier exceeds its own elevated standards with this audacious ballpoint pen. A tribute to aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont, this instrument is a true masterpiece of modern design. The sterling silver barrel is modeled after the gleaming, streamlined hull of an early aircraft, and is riveted by a number of solid gold screws. The gold-plated propeller-shaped clip and ogival captop dome complete the exhilarating aeronautical illusion. Outer box, display box, papers, leather pen holder. Limited Edition: 0503/1904.
