According to legend, on one particular New Year, the Emperor of Jade summoned all the animals in creation to a mysterious meeting, promising them a special reward. Only 12 animals responded to the invitation. The Emperor then gave each of the twelve a year of their own, numbered in the order of their arrival, and that year would carry their name forever. The fifth sign is the Dragon, the only mythological animal to be included in the Chinese zodiac.

The Dragon, the legendary founder of Chinese civilization, guardian of the elements across the successive dynasties, and symbol of perseverance and success. To celebrate this year and confirm its admiration for Chinese culture, Caran d’Ache, Maison de Haute Ecriture, has created a new, prestigious writing instrument with a powerful character and full of positive virtues.

This beautiful writing instrument is made of a brass body and cap, covered with a glossy black polished Chinese lacquer with the Dragon’s body in a matte red Chinese lacquer and a calligraphic depiction of the Dragon made by Mr Li Qiang Sheng. The gold-plated writing block has five engraved depictions of the Dragon. The Caran d’Ache logo and Swiss Made branding are engraved on the ring while the words “Chinese lacquer” are engraved in Chinese on the tip. Equipped with a rhodium-plated 18k gold nib.

Designed and produced from start to finish in the company’s workshops in Geneva, the Léman instruments offer writing aficionados a comfort never felt before. Elegant contrasts are seen in the silver-plated and rhodium-coated attributes, topped with a lacquered button in a matching colour. An ode to lakeside settings, they will delight aesthetes looking for a timeless gift to offer or as a personal indulgence.

Writing instruments transformed into essential companions through the combination of two precious ancestral skills that are emblematic of the company: the art of lacquering and the art of guillochage. Used in conjunction with a colour chart developed over a number of years by the craftsmen of Caran d’Ache, this mastery is clear for all to see.
