Caran d’Ache presents Timegraph, their first fountain pen to include an integrated watch with a mechanical movement. This exceptional product combines two jewels in the crown of Swiss excellence: Haute Écriture and Luxury Watchmaking.
Caran d’Ache has been an ambassador for the prestigious ‘Swiss Made’ label for over 100 years with valuable know-how dating back to 1915. With the new Timegraph, Caran d’Ache continues to pay homage to the world of Swiss craftsmanship and the art of watchmaking today. The Geneva-based company has always celebrated this heritage through its prestige editions, inspired by the iconography of watchmaking, by boldly yet elegantly reinterpreting its traditions.
Now, the company’s craftspeople have taken this to new heights with the creation of Timegraph. In a world first, a genuine traditional Swiss watch has been integrated into an elegant standard-sized fountain pen.
In a world first, a genuine traditional Swiss watch has been integrated into an elegant standard-sized fountain pen.
Timegraph is the result of over two years of Research and Development, incorporating a miniature mechanical watch movement with manual winding created by the Swiss horlogist Le Temps Manufacture SA in Fleurier.
This technical feat was achieved thanks to the skills of highly experienced workshops from the two prestigious fields. A pen body with standard dimensions - a diameter of 15 mm, and a length of 151 mm when closed and 137.5 mm when open - was redesigned to accommodate an ultra-slim movement. The innovative design features 145 components concealed in a pen with delicate curves enhanced by a palladium coating for the metallic parts and a full black PVD coating on the pen body.
The diverse and exclusive know-how of the company’s master craftspeople bring together both technical sophistication and exclusivity. The product’s innovations include a unique refill system that fills the miniature piston ink pump via an external filling mechanism and anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass, accentuating the refined nib. The pen features a meticulously hand-polished 18 carat-gold nib, the size of which can be selected by the owner.
The movement developed for Timegraph has all the features of an industry leader. With a run time of 40 hours, the mechanical watch movement manufactured by LTM SA is a remarkable achievement in its own right. This ultra-slim, miniature movement blends with the body of the pen, ensuring the time is displayed optimally. The sapphire crystal reveals the mechanism with its 18 jewelled bearings, rhodium-coated finishes and Geneva wave.
Presented in an elegant black wooden lacquer box similar to a watch case, for the ultimate collector, Timegraph offers a number of customisation options, including enamelling, glazing or miniature engraving, to name but a few. On request, the item can be fully customised for its owner by highly qualified master craftspeople.
By bringing together these two illustrious worlds, Caran d’Ache is positioning Timegraph firmly at the centre of its prestige collectors’ editions.
