They launched their spectacular pen range in 1973 and started a revolution with their first luxury ballpoint pen. The desire to write… The cap is engraved with the letter “D” on metal coated with black lacquer, symbol of exclusivity and the emblem of craftsman that has transformed an object into a work of art. It is instantly recognisable and envied: “D” for desire and “D” for delightful. It was in 1996, with the introduction of the Olympio collection that a line of ”bespoke” pens came into existence. This is haute couture: the creation of a single pen fashioned from metal entails no less than 150 operations and 200 quality control tests. Each nib is hand crafted, polished and tested by S.T Dupont experts. An S.T Dupont pen is first and foremost a work of goldsmithing excellence, with many of the procedures requiring an almost surgical precision, for example guilloche, chasing and engraving techniques. Brass sections are shaped into numerous decorative forms whose finesse and brilliance ensure their uniqueness. The subsequent application of Chinese lacquer represents the signature feature of these pens. Chinese lacquer is the liquid sap from a lacquer tree that firms in contact with the air. Chinese lacquer is a material that must be mastered, as its coloration and application require exceptional dexterity. A reflective material, lacquer gives pens extraordinary luminosity.MAINTAINED BY GLEN SPARDELLOBe sure to add me to your favorites list!Check out my other items!045690n Powered by eCRATER .
