Caran d’Ache is once again paying tribute to Asian culture with the creation of a Fine Writing instrument in the form of the fifth sign of the Chinese zodiac: the Dragon.
Celebrated once every 60 years, it is the Wood Dragon that takes pride of place in 2024. Brimming with enthusiasm and tireless energy, the Dragon is the embodiment of strength and success. Every aspect of its life is characterised by its creativity and imagination.
The body of this Limited Edition is an intense red colour, meticulously applied by our master lacquerer. From this scarlet backdrop emerges the dragon designed by Caran d’Ache’s ambassador, Jean-Philippe Kalonji. The fantastic creature and its scales are delicately engraved on several levels, adding relief to this exceptional piece.
The Dragon and the metallic elements such as the clip, the button and the body of the fountain pen and rollerball nib boast 18-carat gold plating, creating a contrast with the gleaming red lacquer.
Chinese culture born under the sign of the dragon.
The Dragon is a Limited Edition of 888 fountain pens and 888 rollerball pens, each one individually numbered. The figure 8 is synonymous of perfect balance. The Dragon Limited Edition is intended for collectors who are aficionados
