Condition and information:
The Cross 652 Townsend ballpoint pen represents a true elegance and sophistication embodied in a writing instrument. The Townsend line got its name from Alonzo Townsend Cross who was the son of Richard Cross, the founder of the company. The line was influenced by the elegant 1938 Art Deco fountain pens but with their own spin and better-improved shape and design. Cross Townsend is also noted as being the pen of the American presidents today.
The body of the pen is crafted in sterling silver and designed in a beautiful lined design from top to bottom, complemented with black details. The finely made guilloche lines give the pen a nice texture.
The barrel features nice crisp inscriptions with “Cross”, “Ireland”, and the 925 stamp which are located right above the midsection. The clip features nice engraving with the Cross branding name.
The midsection of the pen is decorated with two rings in monochrome silver color separated by a delicate black line matching the one on the cap top. Due to the reflection and shine of the pen, it is hard to depict its true high gloss in photos. The pen is retractable and uses a very responsive twist mechanism which is convenient and easy to use.
This is a truly oversize, solid pen both in weight and size, it weighs 28g without the refill which is substantially heavier in comparison to other ballpoint pens by any standard. The significantly heavier weight of the pen contributes for its perfect feel in the hand and great balance. It has an amazing form factor, very pleasant to write with.
The pen can be a great match if you already own a Cross Townsend fountain pen.
The pen uses Cross ballpoint pen refill and we will provide you with an original one in blue color so the pen can be used right away. The standard Cross refills are easy to replace and are readily available. The refill uses smooth writing ink which will contribute for effortless long everyday writing sessions. Stainless steel front ball-tip ensures no skipping and constant smooth writing. The pen simply glides on the paper effortlessly offering a great writing experience for your daily practices.
It comes in its original Cross box together with instructions and a lifetime guarantee against mechanical failure by the manufacturer.
The pen is the embodiment of timeless design and comfort accompanied by impeccable performance while writing made to last for generations.
The pen is in a mint near NOS condition ready to be used.
