Richard Mille is known for its luxury watches, so its foray into collectible fountain pens may seem like a jump. However, when you see the intricacies within the pen you’ll understand why and how it costs upwards of $105,000 USD. The brand’s artisans have taken its watchmaking know-how and applied it to a fountain pen that features a visible movement in the pen’s barrel that allows for declension and ascension of its nib.

The movement boasts a 12-crystal, skeletonized baguette movement and a recoil escapement that is more usually seen within mechanical alarm watches. This intricate movement is visible beneath a sapphire crystal window. Constructed of the same premium materials as its watches, the pen also features a machined NTPT Carbon material in its body. This specific process means that no two pens will ever be the same. The pen is part of a limited production run, and surely a beautiful object if your wallet can afford it.
