The Richard Mille RMS05 is a fountain pen with a difference, in that it boasts a beautifully precise self-winding Swiss movement that pays tribute to the greatness of precision mechanical watches.

This fountain pen's self-winding mechanism is visible thanks to the use of a pair of 1800 Vickers sapphire crystals that are treated with anti-glare treatment. The movement itself is constructed together from a super-lightweight and skeletonized titanium plate.

If you're wondering why Swiss movements are necessary in a pen, you'd be interested to know that the movement works to protrude the 18-karat white-gold nib from the barrel of the pen at the simple push of a button. While fountain pens usually come with retractable nibs, what makes the Richard Mille RMS05 fountain special is the fact that it makes the movements smooth and precise, making this an object of desire for appreciators of classic pens.
