This item has minor surface scratches. The ballpoint pen is housed in the original gift presentation packaging. The Swiss brand TF Est. 1968 proudly embarked on a journey of discovery in pursuing the world's most exceptional timepieces. The brainchild of Swiss entrepreneur Freddy Tschumi, TF Est 1968 specializes in designing and manufacturing a marvelous collection of horologic-themed instruments and items that feature tiny mechanical hearts within, and one of the most interesting accessories for the ardent watch fan are their extensive range of horologic-themed writing instruments. Describing his TF Est 1968 Company as a fun brand, the instruments which he creates are very seriously cool pieces in their own regard, and not content with a simple repeated novelty, the collection extends to cover a host of styles, and all of these are based on many of watchmaking's complications, from the escapement, to moon phases and even on to the majestic tourbillon in a ballpoint pen. It would be easy to dismiss such pieces as novelties, but a brief closer inspection will reveal a level of artistry and quality, which is on a par with many watch brands whose art TF Est 1968 pens emulate. Available in increasingly complex variations, they do live up to the standards a watch collector would expect.

The TF Est 1968 pens are all finely balanced writing instruments made with replaceable ballpoint refills. The collection opens with the Clockwork and Wheelwork models, featuring decorative watch components adorning the pen's length and finished in rose gold, palladium or black PVD. The Tourbillon Openside ballpoint pen has a crystal top and rounded glass side, offering a mesmerizing view of this much-cherished complication in motion.

Each complication has been minutely recreated using genuine high-grade watch components. While not actually performing a meaningful display, thanks to the quality of materials used and the intricacy and motion of the tiny parts, each set possesses all of the charm of their real-life counterparts, and sets off the overall theme to perfection. It is no exaggeration to say that Freddy Tschumi's creations have truly captured the hearts of watch fans around the world, and neither is it any real surprise: in terms of concept, design, perfectly assembled and working mechanicals, and the quality of finish makes them a must-have accessory for any self-respecting horologic aficionado! Please study all pictures thoroughly and read my description.
