Race to the finish

Krone is introducing the Le Mans pen collection, which celebrates the 24 Heures Du Mans, the world’s oldest endurance sports car race. A colorful interpretation of a vintage 1956 Le Mans image is hand painted on mother-of-pearl on the barrel. The pen’s cap has a mother-of-pearl inset, hand painted in a classic font: “24 Heures du Mans.” The shortened clip is adorned with lacquered racing stripes in crimson and white.  A distinctive three-dimensional pattern in .925 sterling silver forms the base of the pen. There are 388 fountain pens ($5,900) and 38 rollerball pens ($5,700) in the edition. Each comes in a great-looking collector’s box.
