Caran d’Ache’s 1010 Limited Edition fountain pen is a tribute to honor the Swiss watchmaking industry.

The inspiration for the name “1010” comes from “Ten minutes past ten (10:10),” the moment when the hands on a watch dial are rightly balanced.

The body of the pen recalls the delicate gears of fine timepieces and is made of rhodium-coated silver. The clip looks like a watch hand, then there is a decorative balance wheel mounted between two rubies under a sapphire dome. Plus there are tiny tick marks around the barrel. The luxury pen even has a piston pump set with a ruby and a sapphire crystal dome at the bottom tip.

The pen is presented in a black lacquered box along with a raw glass bottle containing blue-black ink and a palladium-plated silver stopper. Each limited edition of 500 is individually numbered. Price: $19,000 (and up, depending on your choice of rhodium-coated silver or gold). (Photos : Timezone)
