Cross 21st Century

Staggeringly, over 100 million (yes, million) Cross Classic Centuries have been sold in the last 70 years. Quite an achievement; they must be doing something right! To celebrate, and also to commemorate 170 years of Cross innovation, they have created the extremely special 21st Century Limited Edition Ballpoint and Fountain Pen.

Inspired by the original 1936 Century line, but designed for the 21st Century, Cross have really pushed the boat out with these superb works of art, constructed as they are from solid gold and crowned with a genuine diamond. Definitely not something to be chucked casually into a desk drawer or lost in the depths of a handbag; much more something to be gazed upon fondly as it nestles in its luxury velvet-lined presentation box.

  • Solid 21k gold barrel, cap and appointments
  • Certified 3mm 1/10th carat, brilliant-cut diamond of grade AA quality
  • Cross 'X' Luxury Collection etched into the finish
  • Fountain pen sports an 18k gold hand-crafted nib and is supplied with an ink converter
  • Handmade in the USA
  • Limited to only 170 pieces worldwide and individually numbered
  • Supplied with an authenticity card / jeweller's certificate signed by jeweller and designer
  • Special anniversary romance booklet commemorating the history of Cross and the Classic Century
  • Presented in a black lacquer box embellished with the Cross lion logo
  • Luxurious plush black velvet interior

And - this is obviously quite important - what will one of these pieces of history set you back?

  • Fountain pen: £5,200
  • Ballpoint: £3,300

They will be available in September, and must be pre-ordered. If you would like to own one of these magnificent writing instruments, contact us by 1st July 2016. Full payment in advance will be required.
