Futurist, inventor, electrical and mechanical engineer, Nikola Tesla was a genius well ahead of his time. His inventions are still being used to this day and his theories were so advanced that they continue to be studied, experimented on and even power the modern world. This Tornado's design was inspired by Tesla's spiral coil used in his wireless power experiments. Concentric circles are acid-etched into the barrel then plated in copper and finished with platinum appointments giving it a radiant and magnetic aesthetic. Each rollerball is loaded into a commemorative packaging tube that doubles as a pen stand when not in use. Pick up this new Tornado and rub shoulders with genius.
George Kartsotis started Retro 1951 in 1990 in Richardson, Texas. He received his first nice pen as a gift for a job promotion and recognized the potential of the special gift. "We're a gift company." He says. "We are selling the accoutrements of life. A pen is not a pen, it's a vehicle to an end – a way of showing who you are." Although Retro specializes in fine writing instruments, they also offer leather accessories, games, lifestyle products and "other cool stuff!"
Retro 1951 custom designs and produces new products and packaging that provide both continuity and freshness year after year. From top selling pens to card cases and desk accessories, they consistently develop a wide range of products that have fueled their retail business. Retro 1951 has enjoyed working with companies like Tommy Bahama, Tumi, Boeing, and many others, designing and manufacturing products that enhance their brand identity. For instance, when developing a product for Harley-Davidson®, Retro 1951 captures the exciting feeling of roaring down a winding road with wind rushing through your hair so you can experience it, even when chained to your desk.
Retro 1951's innovative products use the latest in design and technology to bring many years of pleasure to the end user. After all, "Life is too short to carry an ugly pen!™"
