Condition and information:
We are very proud to offer, this time capsule preserved set, which is one of the more rare 45s made in France.
The set comes with its original warranty card and certificate, on which the printed serial number, is matching the serial number on the pen.
The Parker 45 model is one of the best-known pens worldwide and one of the most successful models of the Parker Pen company.
It was their first cartridge model, one that captured the hearts and souls of the people with a modern design. The pen was intended for the mid-class pen market, but soon its popularity caught on so much that Parker started to produce high-end luxurious variations of it. There were dozens upon dozens of variants of the Parker 45, made primarily in the UK and USA. This model however was made in France, and even though made in the late 60s or early 70s, it is actually 1st Generation Parker 45 design. This model was a later production, the late 1960s, but it is still considered the 1st generation Parker 45.
It is beautiful and elegant, but also one of the toughest Parker 45s, the Flighter model made entirely out of stainless steel, radially matte brushed finished.
The pen can be used with any ink cartridge but also with an ink converter, both are included.
The nib is solid 14K gold, "X" standing for Extra Fine. It is a very soft nib and will produce some amazing writing with the gentlest push. The pen has a great grip and feel in the hand when posted due to the heavy cap.
The pen is very easy to use, it does not dry, it's easy to fill from any bottled ink or with a new cartridge. The pen comes with its original bladder converter ready to be used with bottled ink.
It is also very easy to clean and maintain, completely disassemblable front section and barrel.
The ballpoint pen is an upper-body push on/off mechanism, very pleasant and easy to use.
Comes with its original refill but an additional new one will be included.
The Parker 45, hardly any pen had or ever will surpass the stunning looks, build quality, performance, ease of use, and many more factors that make for a remarkable pen.
