The minutes past ten, the magic moment when the hands are in perfect balance, evokes the similiarities between fine writing and fine watchmaking. These artistic crafts have deep roots in a Swiss culture that makes time a universe of excellence and precision an absolute standard.

To demonstrate this affinity, Caran d'Ache has created 1010, a Limited Edition conceived as a tribute to magnificent timepieces with intricate complications.

The 1010 Limited Edition is a living link to a Swiss heritage, celebrating the special genius of watchmakers. Its design draws on the roots of Swiss watchmaking, demonstrating expertise, creativity and master of technique.

Inspired by the watches with skeletonised case backs, it proudly reveals its interacting functions, sophisticated assemblies and perfect mechanics. the most noble materials have been used: gold, rhodium-coated silver plated, and precious stones.

The crafts and expertise of watchmaking and fine writing come together in this pen. Just as in designing a watch, the creative process requires patience to allow ideas to mature. It calls for a fundamental skills and advanced development tools. The 1010 Limited Edition is part of the search for perfection that all craftsmen share: its elegant construction, its daring concept and its complex manufacturing make it both an artistic and technical triumph.

As time passes and the ink flows through the transparent body of the pen to its gold nib, the pleasure of writing becomes a delightful extension of thinking. It offers the supreme luxury of mastering time for a moment. 500 pieces of the 1010 Limited Edition are made in 18-carat gold, rhodium-coated, 10 pieces in 18-carat gold and decorated with delicately engraved gear wheels. It is built and polished by hand to provide exquisite softness and comfort in writing.

The cap is inspired by wristwatch crowns. It is made in plated-silver and coated with rhodium, polished by hand. The clip has been designed to suggest a watch hand, attached to a pinion.

The nib is hand made, 28-carat gold, rhodium-plated, delicately engraved with gear wheel design.

The ring is delicately engraved to count the hours passing by.

The interior cage of the body represents the complex mechanism of a watch movement. The design of the exterior care is inspired by the bridge that support a watch's gear train.

The piston pump is set with a ruby as in a winding crown.

The balance wheel is the key element that brings a watch to life. Caran d'Ache craftsmen have positioned it at the tip of the body, perfectly poised between two rubies. This very delicate element can be seen through a sapphire crystal dome.
