Cartier Santos Limited Edition Fountain Pen
Taking a cue from the forward-moving cultural changes that sprung from the ashes of the Industrial Revolution, the movement into the modern era resulted in an intellectual fascination with all things technological. With the continuous tech updates that mark our contemporary world, mankind has developed a closely interdependent relationship with machinery both within our literary pursuits (especially within Science Fiction) and within our daily lives. Streamlined yet striking, industrial and manufacturing motifs such as plating and screwheads lend a modern tone to this chic Cartier pen that is simultaneously contemporary and an homage to our industrial past.
Cartier Art Deco Chinoiserie Inspired Fountain Pen
Japanese literary culture celebrates the concept of “Mono No Aware” which translates to “the pathos of things.” It inspires one to pay attention and appreciate the small details of life: the simple pleasure of a cup of tea, the smoothness of a delicate textile against one’s skin, the delicacy of a single drop of dew on a freshly bloomed flower. This Cartier Chinoiserie pen is alive with details that bring both the Art Deco era and it’s adoration of Eastern cultures brilliantly to life. From the bright coral set cap to the Chinoiserie inspired symbols, this fountain pen is a thing of beauty ideal for crafting your own beautiful sentiments.

Harken back to a more traditional era with the fine pink enameling and charming design of this Cartier watch pen and put to practice your own penmanship.
