Montegrappa’s Ferracina Timeless reappears in a new guise, the expressive silhouette stripped back to its luxurious essentials. Precision engineering, sterling silver, and a voluptuous celluloid body makes the two micro-batches highly collectible.
Bartolomeo Ferracina’s clockmaking prowess made him a celebrity figure in 18th century Italy, and his engineering genius helped transform Europe’s most prosperous region. The clockwork precision of Montegrappa’s proprietary piston-fill system is the hidden genius beneath the contoured celluloid exterior of the Ferracina Timeless. This reference-level complication uses a 32-tooth cog and haptic feedback to bring unparalleled exactness to the act of drawing ink.
This Shiny Circles edition is inspired by the roof of Padua’s royal Palazzo della Ragione—another monument of innovation created under the leadership of the master engineer.
Limited to just 20 numbered pieces, the Ferracina Timeless sports a #8 18K gold nib and ebonite feed.
