The Maison Caran d’Ache and the horological laboratory MB&F, have combined their expertise for a unique creative odyssey: the Astrograph writing instrument.
Bound by a shared creative passion for mechanical excellence, the Maison Caran d’Ache and the youthful watch Maison MB&F have combined their expertise in developing the exceptional Astrograph writing instrument. This new creation pays tribute to the exploratory genius and childhood dreams that spark technical feats.
Conquering new territory
Propelling one’s own dreams into space by means of a rocket-pen: such was the original idea dreamt up by Maximilian Büsser – a new adventure that has been enthusiastically welcomed by the creative and technical teams at Maison Caran d’Ache. With the Astrograph, Caran d’Ache and MB&F have developed an instrument featuring complex architecture while ensuring perfect writing comfort. Like a modern-day odyssey, the creation of this exceptional model symbolises the conquest of space through making dreams come true.
Creating the Astrograph was an authentic technical challenge to which the Maison Caran d’Ache teams rose with aplomb. Fine-tuning the concept called for four years of gestation and fruitful exchanges, while an entire year was devoted to developing the final model. More than 500 manual operations were involved in its production in the workshops of the Geneva-based Manufacture.
Astrograph features a slim body evoking the outlines of a space vessel. The perfectly integrated design of this creation comprises 99 innovative elements.
