Caran d'Ache 100 Years Oberalp Fountain Pen (Limited Edition)
[CDA-OBERALPF]
Switzerland in optima forma: in honour of the 100 years jubilee of Caran d'Ache this special limited edition has been released with the most beautiful symbols of the confederation.

The “Oberalp” limited edition pays tribute to the Alpine spirit which is inseparable from Swiss identity. Living with the mountains, getting to know them, admiring them, preserving their natural environment and the customs of their inhabitants are values that are deeply rooted in Swiss culture.
The Oberalp pass, located in the heart of the Swiss Alps at a height of 2.044 metres, is a major communication route between north and south through the Gothard mountains. Their rocky peaks attracted fans of Alpine landscapes, resulting in the mountain trips undertaken in the 19th century by the famous founder of climbing, Geneva scientist, Horace-Bénédict de Saussure.

Delicate engraving
The designers of the Maison Caran d’Ache have transcribed their love of the bucolic world of the mountains with its green pastures into three exceptional writing instruments: the “Oberalp” pens.
A figurative frieze representing an idyllic Alpine landscape extends over three sides of the body of the pen. This is reminiscent of traditional Alpine paper-cutting and is created using delicate engraving and black lacquer. The other three sides celebrate the beauty of edelweiss, the “stars of the snow” that have become symbolic of Switzerland and the Alpine spirit.

The edition is limited to 2.044 pens. The fountain pen has an 18 karat gold nib and uses cartridges or a converter.

About Caran d'Ache
Caran d’Ache, founded in 1924 by Arnold Schweitzer, was a product of Switzerland’s long history of watchmaking and jewellery manufacture. Today, it is the epitome of superior quality and recognized expertise.
Each product is created by hand in the Geneva workshops and brings together the traditional expertise of master craftsmen and the performance of computer-assisted machine tools.
