Girard-Perregaux Debuts New Writing Instruments

Luxury Writing Instruments: Swiss watchmaker Girard-Perregaux, founded in 1791, is introducing its first line of fine writing instruments, based on its iconic Tourbillon with Three Bridges gold timepiece. A prize-winner at the Paris Universal Exhibition of 1889, the watch is still made by Girard-Perregaux today. The new limited edition Three Bridges collection of pens is adorned with precious metal engraved with delicate guilloche work, based on a vintage 1945 Three Bridges Tourbillon. The clip on the caps is double-arrow shaped, like the bridge on the famous timepieces, while three opening on the pen body showing the ink level are reminiscent of the power reserve indicators on the watch.

The fountain pen is equipped with an exclusive high-capacity double reservoir system to prevent any risk of leakage, and an engraved gold nib. There are three models available: a piston fountain pen in guilloche silver and resin, limited to 999-pieces; a piston fountain pen in guilloche pink gold and resin, limited to 99 pieces; and a rollerball in guilloche silver and resin, limited to 999 pieces. A matching set comprising the silver fountain pen and rollerball are also available in an edition of 199 pieces.
