So as I was reflecting on my 1st wedding anniversary and Parker's connection to it,  I was reminded that Parker is celebrating an anniversary of their own.

 Made in France in Parker’s Center of excellence, the Duofold Senior 125th Anniversary Limited Edition honors its founder’s ethos: ‘It will always be possible to make a better pen’. This Limited Edition is a majestic and contemporary illustration of George s. Parker’s visionary spirit when he first conceived the acclaimed and luxurious Duofold collection. Now a design reference in the fine writing industry, we see this iconic pen today enhanced with an elegant and modern touch to create a finely crafted pen of exceptional poise and exceeding caliber.

This new pen revisits the brand’s iconic patented ‘ciselé’ pattern, a chiseled metalwork introduced with the Parker 75 range in the 1960’s which garnered global acclaim and which has become an undeniable hallmark of the ingenuity of the brand. The Duofold Senior 125th Anniversary Limited Edition boasts a beautiful combination of silver plated casing and precious black resin resulting in a pleasurable tactile rendering for a sublimated version of the ‘ciselé’ pattern signed by Parker. 

A number from 0001 to 1125 on the barrel button establishes this exceptional Limited Edition as a precious collector’s item, whilst the cap is crowned with a 125th anniversary decal design in sterling silver for a seal of individuality and sophistication.
