Caran d’Ache and the horological laboratory MB&F have pooled their know-how to design and produce a homage to the conquest of space and to the individuals who were bold enough never to lose sight of their childhood dreams…
The Astrograph limited edition is designed as a veritable launch pad with a rocket pen waiting to blast off into space. It is accompanied by a presentation set along with a miniature astronaut that can be attached anywhere to the body of the rocket, ready to embark on a fantastic space odyssey.
Born under a lucky star, the Astrograph has been brought to life by the signature of MB&F and the ingenuity of the craftsmen at Caran d’Ache. Manufacturing it was a massive technical challenge. Four years of reflection and fruitful discussions were necessary to perfect the concept with another year devoted to the development of the final model. With a perfectly integrated design, the Astrograph incorporates 99 innovative elements. More than 500 manual operations are required to manufacture it in the Geneva-based workshops of Caran d’Ache.
The Astrograph is available in three different finishes: brilliant polished rhodium, matt sanded rhodium and anthracite ruthenium, and only 99 will be made of each – a tip of the hat to the 99 components specially developed for this limited edition.
