Issued in a limited edition of just 60 pens as a tribute to the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 2012.
1952 - 2012
60 Glorious Years!
The summer of 2012 will long be remembered for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, The London Olympics and the Paralympics – three extraordinary events that have hit the headlines around the world
Now, as Onoto’s tribute to this memorable summer, here is the Onoto Diamond Jubilee pen. Issued in a limited edition of just 60, one for each year of The Queen’s reign, the Onoto Diamond Jubilee is the perfect way for you to celebrate those memorable events.
It features a sterling silver cap which has been engine-turned in the traditional way with a distinctive diamond-shaped engraved pattern that shimmers as you turn the pen in your hand. The tri-colour barrel is made by diffusion-bonding black, white and pearlescent silver-grey acrylic to complement the sterling silver cap.
The 23 carat gold-plated Onoto chevron clip and the gold-plated Onoto cipher on top of the cap just add to the royal ‘feel’ - while the 18 carat gold Onoto nib confirms its importance as a pen that will find a special place in many pen collections around the world.
Including a real diamond!
Look closer and you’ll also find, appropriately, a real diamond embedded in the clip, just below the distinctive Onoto chevron.
The Onoto Diamond Jubilee weighs in at 36 grams and, with the cap posted or not posted, it is perfectly balanced and sits comfortably in your hand for easy writing over a long period of time.
Onoto nibs – Probably the best on the market
Put ‘pen to paper’ and you’ll enjoy the smoothness of the exclusive Onoto Size 7 18 carat gold nib. It’s a true touch of luxury and is available in broad, fine or medium widths to suit your handwriting style.
Custom nibs also available
And if you prefer to use a special nib – an italic, stub or oblique, for example – just let us know and one of the UK's leading nib-masters will grind a nib to your exact specifications. Just complete your requirements in the shopping cart.
Look closely at the reverse of the cap and you’ll see the hallmarks, including the Diamond Jubilee mark which is only issued by the Assay Office until October 2012. In the photo (right) you can pick out our sponsor mark (OPC), the purity mark (925), the Jubilee mark (Queen's head), the Birmingham Assay mark (anchor) and the sterling silver mark (lion rampant).
And for that extra touch…
Whether for yourself or as a gift, you can have the Onoto Diamond Jubilee engraved with a name or initials for that touch of exclusivity at a modest extra cost.
