The 1849 E-W limited edition is inspired to the legendary epic of the gold rush which saw, starting from the year 1849, thousands of courageous individuals from all over the world undertaking the adventure of emigrating from the eastern states of America to the legendary West, in search of gold but also of a better life. An event which contributed to forging the American spirit with its optimism, tireless dynamism and belief in itself. The story of this journey is traced on the barrel and cap: the pioneer's wagon trains give way to those of the gold prospectors, followed by the gradual colonization of California, the construction of gold mines and the building of the railway.
This special version realized in sterling silver, exclusively for the American market, is decorated with fine lacquering atop the cap and only available as 156 rollerball pens to commemorate the 156th anniversary of the Gold Rush.
