Nostalgic of the first-ever made mechanical pencils, the Caran d'Ache Ecridor Retro ballpoint pen has the look of a pristine retro-style writing utensil. With its guilloche of lozenges wrapping around its barrel, it produces a simple, repetitive design that has grand impact. Finished with a palladium coating, its white silvery sheen speaks to its high-end Swiss make, while its rudimentary industrial theme makes it organic and relatable. It comes stocked with a Goliath cartridge, allowing you to fill up to 600 A4 pages with its ink. Store this time-honoured pen in your desk drawer: it'll saturate your writing with inspiration and energy.
Celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, Caran d'Ache has been refining the craft of pen-making for years. The company was founded in Geneva, Switzerland in 1915, by Arnold Schweitzer, and named after Emmanuel Poiré, a famous French illustrator, who went by the pseudonym Caran d'Ache. Harvesting natural materials from the mountains of Switzerland, Caran d'Ache started as a small pencil factory.
Over the years, the company gained widespread acclaim for its unparalleled technical quality and craftsmanship in writing instruments, upholding the same high-quality standards as the Swiss watchmaking and jewellery industries that grew alongside it. Today, the tradition of excellence lives on, with each product subjected to strict quality control and environmentally responsible processing.
