Condition & information:

First introduced in 1946, the Classic Century sleek silhouette comes as a reminder even today of the mid-century modern design. The set listed here is part of the Classic Century line and it has all the characteristics that the line is distinctive for which are simplicity, quality materials, and elegance.
The pens are crafted in lustrous chrome over a solid metal base which makes them strong and durable.
The pen and pencil follow a simple yet powerful form which ends in a classic Cross conical-top profile with flat black inserts at the top. The final of the ballpoint pen is decorated with a silver circular insert in order to make it easier for the user to distinguish the pen and pencil when they are being placed next to each other. This design is finished with subtle incised guilloche lines which gives the pens an even more refined look. Pictures do not do justice to these pens, it is difficult to capture their high gloss in photos due to the extremely high reflections, the pens simply shine. The branding name of the company is seamlessly incorporated on the clip. The top part features nice crisp engravings that read “Cross”, and “Made in USA”.

The ballpoint pen uses Cross ballpoint pen refills 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.
The pen is retractable and uses a very responsive twist mechanism which is convenient and easy to use. This is a great choice for your daily practices because the pen simply glides on the paper effortlessly offering a great writing experience. 

The pencil uses a smooth twist mechanism, which deploys the leads quite nicely and easily. It uses 0.9mm sized leads which are very durable and perfect for any kind of drawing, several leads are included with the pencil. The leads replacement can be made through the front cone which has a special metal mechanism inside and the leads are stored inside the barrel with a separate slot for every lead. The pencil features an eraser which can be found by removing the cap. The fine tip of the pencil is retractable which protects it from damage. A perfect choice for your daily drafting and drawing practices.
The pens are very well balanced, with a perfect grip, and easy to use, made from high-quality materials meant to last for generations.
