With its high-gloss finish and platinum-plated trim, the Cross Peerless 125 Obsidian Black Lacquer fountain pen is a powerfully modern addition to the Cross Peerless series. This is a writing instrument which exudes power and authority.

The Peerless 125 series celebrates the 125th anniversary of the first Cross fountain pen, and the Obsidian Black Lacquer combines elements of the original pen with elements of the iconic Cross Century line first introduced in 1935. Sleek black lacquer coats the cap and barrel in a simple, streamlined finish. This pen is a perfect choice for those who tend to gravitate towards silver when selecting watches or jewelry.

At a closed length of 5.7" and a weight of 46.4 grams, this is a full-sized and well-balanced pen, perfect for those who prefer a bit more heft and width in their writing instruments. It can use convenient Cross brand ink cartridges, or can be filled with any bottled fountain pen ink using the included converter.

A gleaming black Swarovski crystal graces the pen's end cap.
The Cross clip allows this pen to be easily affixed to a shirt pocket, making it the perfect pen for business meetings or for signing important documents.

The smooth-writing 18k solid gold nibs have been created specially for Cross by Sailor, one of Japan's most noted pen manufacturers. Notice the special "125" engraving on the nib for this series. 

These 18k nibs are well-suited to customizations such as Cursive Italic, Left Oblique, and our special Architect's Point modification. 

The Cross Peerless 125 Obsidian Black Lacquer fountain pen ships in a luxury hinged presentation box and includes papers.
