Luxury watchmaker MB&F has teamed up with with Swiss writing instrument company Maison Caran d’Ache to create the unparalleled Astrograph pen.

Half pen, half showpiece, the Astrograph is the most complex writing tool ever designed by Caran d’Ache, and each individual utensil requires more than 500 manual operations to manufacture. Reportedly the product of a four-year plan to realize the concept, only 99 pens will be produced. Each of the Swiss-made, space-inspired instruments is numbered and packaged in a limited box that resembles a launch pad, complete with a tiny magnetic astronaut and ladder detail on the pen itself.

Available in fountain pen and rollerball variations, the Astrograph has also been produced with three choices of finish: high-gloss rhodium, sandblasted matte rhodium and anthracite ruthenium.

With a pricetag of $20,000, you can purchase the pen through MB&F.
