This year, the company draws special attention to its famous pen by creating a new version that is totally original while preserving all its particular qualities. Coated in the most desirable of the noble metals, the 849 Goldbar becomes the timeless, dependable asset of 2012.
With its chic gold plating and its unmistakable modernity, this affordable pen is perfectly in tune with the times. Several processes have been combined to give the body its gold-coloured satin finish, and its fittings are coated with three microns of gold, creating a magnificent sparkle.
