Caran d’Ache 849 is genuinely a cult object, both smart and instantly identifiable as the ultimate emblem of the Maison Caran d'Ache, the 849 pen has a hexagonal shape and the ultra-comfortable proportions of an iconic model. Heir to the principles of industrial design and its ergonomic concerns, the 849 and its purist architecture are the source of continuous stylistic renewal, designed for the long term.
The robustness, the flexible clip and the user-friendliness of the pushbutton make the 849 a trusty everyday companion that is both modern and fun, thanks to the many different styles in which it comes. Themes dear to the heart of Swiss identity coexist with motifs and shades trending on international fashion runways. Pure, luminous colours, along with fluorescents and metallics entirely cover the bodies of the ballpoint pens and mechanical pencils, accentuating a classical look or a pop art spirit, while Caran d'Ache sometimes gives well-known designers free rein to put their very own creative stamp on the legendary 849.
