The luxury product line S.T. Dupont has created a magnificent limited edition collection which pays homage to the Orient Express. The design element on this exquisite line is nothing short of breathtaking. Although, the collection includes many options, I prefer the Orient Express Prestige Writing Kit. It offers something that every serious collector would want to add to their own personal museum. The matching pen holder is most definitely a work of art, in and of itself.

The pen holder is crafted of blue placed lacquer and trimmed in gold finish. The rail cars and train wheels on this exquisite pen stand are also adorned in the same lustrous gold finish. When you place the Neo-Classique President Fountain Pen on top of this pen holder, behold… you are now looking at an authentic reproduction of the Orient Express! Let this beautiful work of art take you back in time to the golden age of travel between the 1920’s and 1930’s. The carriage windows glimmer of mother of pearl, the body of the pen is a combination of S.T. Dupont’s luxurious blue and white placed lacquer, and the fountain pen is trimmed in yellow gold finish. Upon removing the cap, you will be mesmerized by the design on the nib. A reproduction of the Orient Express train wheels are actually engraved on the post of the gold nib set.

The Prestige Writing Kit also includes a matching ink bottle and gold paper cutter. Additionally, this set includes a converter kit, allowing you to convert this pen from a Fountain Pen to a Rollerball. Now imagine taking a romantic trip on the Orient Express where the journey is indeed the most memorable part of your travel. Let this limited edition collector’s item take you back in time to the vintage days of luxury travel.

If the Writing Kit seems like it might be missing an element of luxury, perhaps you might choose to expand your collection. S.T. Dupont also created an Attaché case within the Orient Express Collection. In addition to the Neo-Classique Fountain Pen, pen holder, matching ink bottle and paper cutter, there is also a matching limited edition ST Dupont Prestige Ligne 2 lighter and matching cuff links. All this is perfectly organized in a timeless Orient Express Attaché. What better way to travel, than with your own museum of luxury?

I didn’t think it would be possible to top this limited edition creation by S.T. Dupont. However, considering the Orient Express has been referred to as the ‘Train of Kings’ and the ‘King of Trains’, it is only fitting that S.T. Dupont expanded this tribute to the Orient Express with their Diamond Collection. The lighter is adorned with a white solid gold medallion, white diamonds on the central medallion, and ST Dupont’s blue and white placed lacquer. The matching Neo-Classique Fountain Pen is also appointed with blue and white placed lacquer, a luxurious white solid gold clip, including an impressive cluster of white diamonds on this clip, and a Rollerball nib set to convert your fountain pen into a Rollerball.

The S.T. Dupont Orient Collection also features the Premium Collection. This series is crafted with sparkling blue placed lacquer and trimmed in palladium finishes. The iconic central medallion on the lighter is inspired by the obscure rain glass window on the bar car of the Orient Express. The center of this medallion is appointed with Mother of Pearl. The side of the lighter has magnificent engraving detail. The front of the lighter features the S.T. Dupont logo, and the back has the Orient Express Signature. The matching Neo Classique large fountain pen and Rollerball are also blue placed lacquer and trimmed in palladium finishes. The barrel of the pen has impressive engraving detail, topped off by the extraordinary engraving detail found on the nib set, which depicts the wheels of the Orient Express.

If my words don’t entice the serious collector, I’m sure the attached images will certainly draw your attention! My brother, Eddie the Pen Man, can answer any of your questions if I didn’t answer them in this article.
