The LeBoeuf Jules Verne Limited Edition was carefully designed and inspired by Verne’s most famous novel “Around the World in 80 Days”. By using a unique process, LeBoeuf was able to produce a special exclusive acrylic which gives the effect of voluminous clouds in a bright blue sky, a prevelant feature in this classic novel. The material was selected to represent the travel and adventure theme of this work. As an added feature, a gold travel balloon is engraved on each cap to appear to be floating in the sky. Each pen has been carefully turned and highly polished with Jules Verne’s famous signature engraved in gold on the barrel. A gold coin with a bust of Jules Verne is fitted onto the top of each cap. Gold-plated accents accentuate the elegance of this unique writing instrument.
Each Jules Verne Fountain Pen features a German-made gold-plated steel nib featuring the LeBoeuf logo in Fine or Medium Points and utilizes a cartridge/Convertor filling system. A Rollerball version is also available and uses a Standard International Rollerball refill. Both the Fountain Pen and Rollerball are limited to 125 pieces worldwide.
