The classic par excellence - Souverän® Stresemann®
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Weimar Republic, Gustav Stresemann (1878 - 1929), was awarded, along with Aristide Briand, the Nobel Peace Prize in 1926 for his work of reconciliation between nations after the First World War. In addition to his impressive political career, Stresemann was also known for designing a new type of costume that was formal enough to be worn during official performances but also comfortable for office work. Stresemann liked to wear costumes with fine stripes until a legend ... Suddenly, the striped pens of Pelikan - which were their first world success at the time - were popularly nicknamed "Stresemann".
To this day, both the costume and the pen continue to bear this name. To honour this legend, Pelikan named this new asset of the standard collection, the "Stresemann" with its elegant Anthracite stripes.
The body of this pen with its simple anthracite features is made of cellulose acetate using a traditional process that requires a lot of work. The black elements are made of high-quality polished resin. The clip and rings are plated with palladium and the gold Nib is completely rhodied for a silver shine. Each writing instrument is hand-assembled and controlled.
Piston-filling pens with palladium platings and a high-quality resin body. They have a view window of the ink level. The pen of the Sovereign M805 is in 18 carat/750 gold.
All Nibs are refined with a rhodied décor and their writing quality is hand-tested. The fountain pens are equipped with a piston filling mechanism, which is developed with high-value brass components on the M805 model.
In 1929, Pelikan was the first company in the world to introduce the piston mechanism. This pen is now available in several models and, although the design and some technical details have evolved since then, the basics of the mechanism remain unchanged.
