George used to begin his journey by crossing the Atlantic to Europe and then moving continuously toward the far East. He went on his first trip in Paris in 1900 to discover the wonders of the Exposition Universelle. Orient fostered his imagination and creation, giving birth to the Mandarin Yellow Duofold colorway, inspired. A vase George once found in Japan. The pen body is crafted from solid brass that is laser engraved with a wrap around map design and varnished with a deep blue lacquer. The trims and clip are plated in gold. 22 components are manually assembled in Nantes (France). The fountain pen is fitted with an 18kt bi-color gold nib that has a compass design on its face. A fine point, but Parker’s service center would be able to provide extra-fine, medium and broad sizes. The pen’s cap has a pattern that is inspired by the diagram of the globe if looked at from the poles. The blue, semi-precious stone at the top of the cap is a 2ct lapis lazuli that evokes color of the deep blue ocean that George frequently traveled. Each stone is delicately selected and will be unique to each pen. Around the jewel, the phrase of “Parker 130 Years Around the World” is laser engraved. The luxurious theme gift box is inspired by vintage luggage. Inside, the lid decoration has a map that highlights the cities visited by George S. Parker on his trips.
