For the first time ever, Pelikan offers pen collectors all over the world the opportunity to bid for one-of-a-kind Maki-e fountain pens. Fifteen individual Maki-e fountain pens belong to the Maki-e Unique Collection 2012, resulting in twelve auctions (among them is one set with four writing instruments). The auctions will start on consecutive days in October 2012, and each will last one week.
Great success for Pelikan.
Pelikan‘s round gift box for Fine Writing Instrument convinced the jury of this year’s red dot award in the category product design. In an evaluation process that lasted several days, the 30 members of the jury agreed to give the round Pelikan gift box “G16” the much coveted “honourable mention” which is awarded to products that offer particularly successful solutions in every detail.
The Special Edition Demonstrator M1005 from Pelikan has been chosen as one of the world's most beautiful writing instrument in the 16th November 2011 issue of "Stylographe", the specialist French pen magazine. The jury of vendors and a selection of writing instrument enthusiasts honoured the exclusive fountain-pen from the Pelikan company with the great distinction of "Le grand trophée du Stylographe 2012".
The Special Edition Eternal Ice from the long-established fountain pen manufacturer Pelikan has won this year's Watches, Jewellery & Pens Award.
The Watches, Jewellery & Pens Award was awarded for the first time in 2006 by the Arabian Watches & Jewellery Magazine and Pen Magazine. Since then, the aim of the award has been the development of the region's industrial standards and the assessment of the best brand representatives in their respective categories by independent experts from the Middle East.
The special edition Demonstrator M1005 elates people all over the world with its unique size and its translucent barrel.
When Pelikan registered the patent for the differential piston mechanism in 1929, nobody knew that the same technique would survive for decades. But to this day, only a few small changes have perfected the piston mechanism, and the Demonstrator model, which was first introduced in a smaller size just to show how it works, became a global success. Technically minded people are fascinated to see the mechanism "in action" every time they refill their fountain pen.
