The Ecridor Retro pays tribute to Caran d'Ache's first mechanical pencils, made in 1947 and from precious materials.
The hexagonalbrass body is coated in palladium and features a guilloche pattern made of lozenges, that resembles a more vintage style. The cap and clip are also rhodium coated. It also features a medium steel nib coated in palladium that gives a lovely write. It comes with a converter, but can also be used with international standard cartridges.
When closed, the pen measures 136.5mm. With the cap posted it measures 170mm, but without the cap it measures 120mm. The diameter is 10mm.
It comes presented in a luxurious Caran d'Ache box.
