Condition and information:
A truly sophisticated and elegant pen perfected in a way that only the Cross company knows how to deliver. The Cross Townsend Rollerball pen incorporates all in one: beauty, smart engineering and quality materials.
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 and the cap of the pen are crafted in metal coated with gray lacquer with gold plated trimmings. The cap and the clip feature nice engravings that read “Cross”, and “USA”.
The cap of the pen is decorated with two rings in gold color which are matched with the details on the top and the end and give the pen an even more stylish look. Due to the reflection and shine of the pen it is hard to depict its true high gloss on photos.
The pen can be a great match if you already own a Cross Townsend fountain pen or if you want to own one but you don’t want to pay the full price for a fountain pen you can simply change the rollerball section with a nib section and actually have them both.
The pen is superb in any way, it has a perfect even over the top feel and balance in the hand. It is smooth on the paper, glides effortlessly due to its weight. The pen uses standard Cross refills which are readily available. It comes with its original refill, but we will include one additional Cross fine liner which will allow you to have long writing sessions with no worries. The refill uses a special gel ink rollerball formula which contributes for a free flow similar to the one of a fountain pen.
This is one of those best classic pens perfect for day to day use, difficult to scratch or damage, simple to use, with good build quality and elegant timeless design.
The pen is in a mint near NOS condition ready to be used.
It comes in its original Cross box together with instructions and lifetime guarantee against mechanical failure by the manufacturer.
