The Maison Caran d’Ache and the horological laboratory, MB&F, have combined their expertise for a unique creative odyssey: the Astrograph writing instrument.
Projecting his dreams of conquering space onto a writing instrument was the original idea of the founder of MB&F, Maximilian Büsser. The creative and technical forces within Caran d’Ache enthusiastically embraced this new adventure, which proved to be both thrilling and complex. The result is the Astrograph writing instrument, product of the overflowing creativity of its designers. An artistic union that took root among the common values held dear by both Maisons: limitless creativity, respect for traditions, impeccable quality and Swiss Made.

The start of the adventure
The Astrograph adventure began four years earlier, when Maximilian Büsser revealed his idea to Caran d’Ache’s creative teams: to let his childhood dreams of travelling in space unfold in a writing instrument. His meeting with Caran d’Ache paved the way for this idea, as poetic as it was as technically challenging, to become a reality. Explorers at heart, Caran d’Ache’s teams drew upon their imagination and technical ingenuity to construct an actual rocket – in reality an exceptional writing instrument that is extremely comfortable in the hand. Astrograph reminds us that we all hide a childhood dream in our heart.
Astrograph is available in three finishes: high-gloss rhodium, sandblasted matt rhodium or anthracite ruthenium. These limited editions are aimed at those who love unusual objets d’art – and at those who have managed to keep hold of an essential part of their childhood dreams.
The Hour Glass is the exclusive retailer of MB&F in Singapore.
