TF Est. 1968 T-Mechanic pen PM-PR01
The horologically-inspired T-Mechanic from the Geneva watchmaking brand
TF Est. 1968 combines the art of fine handwriting with pure workshop craftsmanship: a genuine mechanism with real moving parts to accompany the calligraphic gesture.
Thanks to its Moon phases or Tourbillon concept cufflinks, both of them now star products showcased in the windows of the world’s most prestigious jewelers/watchmakers, TF Est. 1968 has opened more than 500 retail outlets in less than two years!
Inspiring a whole wave of new collectors, the Geneva watchmaking brand went on to offer these exquisite accessories for elegant shirt cuffs in a choice of delicious candy colors and various coatings, sometimes set with diamonds, precious or semi-precious gemstones. The brand’s foray into the use of materials, featuring a carbon fiber background in a choice of irresistible colors (two of its defining codes), has in the process raised the profile and promoted the distribution of its genuine Swiss made timepieces. In an already overcrowded market, TF Est. 1968’s cufflinks open new doors.
The T-Mechanic pen in palladium, resumes the codes at the heart of his success with a playful display of fully functional watchmaking parts. What self-respecting watch enthusiast, what fan of micromechanical engineering could fail to purchase a ball pen where the hermetically sealed solid sapphire crystal section of the body reveals a genuine watchmaking mechanism? Such an instrument, while making a bold statement, not only makes an interesting conversation starter, but also underlines a passion for watchmaking.
