There was a lot happening in America back in 1846. It’s the year the
sewing machine was invented, the year Morse Code began to change the
face of the West, and the year America braced for war with Mexico.
it’s also the year that A. T Cross, America’s oldest and most renowned
manufacturer of fine pens first opened its factory doors. Cross’
founder, Richard Cross, dedicated his life to making beautiful pens –
and now, over one hundred and sixty years later, Cross still
make beautiful pens.
what’s more, they still make them the same way they did back in 1846 –
by hand, to the most exacting specifications…and one at a time.
When Cross call one of their pens a “classic”, then you know they’re being serious. Designed in 1946, a hundred years after the formation of Cross, the Century Classic is an archetype of American design and innovation. With a sleek profile, a twist-action barrel and polished chrome and gold-plated appointments, this is a design that’s sure to endure for another hundred years.
