Tibaldi Gears up With Bentley Motors

  • Alexandra Foster

Italian pen maker Tibaldi has teamed with Bentley Motors for a special-edition collection that pays homage to the venerable automaker. The Continental Collection features distinct details reflective of the car company’s well-known continental design. The detail along the pen barrel and cap, for example, resembles the knurled bands of the switch gear on the car’s interior, and the engraved retaining clip on the cap is the same typeface seen on the engine bay. The collection, available in signature Bentley colors, includes a fountain pen for $2,500 (shown), ballpoint for $1,500, and roller ball for $2,000. The collection can be purchased at any Bentley Motors dealer and through Tibaldi pen dealers. (www.tibaldi.it)
