Writing with passion.
Porsche may not be known for writing instruments, but their lifestyle and accessory subsidiary, Porsche Design, has made a name for itself in the world of fashion and style. Their latest luxury accessory line builds on the success of the P’3125 Slim Line writing instruments with a set of new graphite models.
The new P’3125 Slim Line Graphite series consists of a ballpoint pen, fountain pen, and mechanical pencil. All three of the writing instruments are made of stainless steel. The stainless steel components are sandblasted then finished with a graphite-colored PVD coating that is extremely durable and scratch resistant. Both the caps and barrels are given finely-milled grooves for an engaging feel while writing. The Porsche Design P’3125 line is then finished with a filigree clip that can be lifted with ease by applying pressure to the end of the clip.
The mechanical pencil and ballpoint pen in the P’3125 Slim Line Graphite series feature a unique mechanism that discharges the ink and lead. By twisting the mechanism, the pencil’s lead is dispensed and the ball point is extended on the pen. During the twisting process, the clip also recedes into the barrel.
The Slim Line Graphite fountain pen is finished with a rhodanised 18-karat gold nib. For better writing comfort, Porsche Design has applied a soft touch varnish to the grip area.
Each of the Porsche Design P’3125 Slim Line Graphite writing instruments come with a high quality Porsche Design case. The writing instruments are currently available with prices beginning at € 210 (+/- 289 USD).
