The first time I had any reason to pay attention to Swiss watchmaker Romain Jerome was when they started selling a line of watches that included small amounts of steel and coal recovered from the Titanic. And even though I wasn’t particularly thrilled with the idea, it seems I was in the minority since the watches sold very well. So to follow up on that success, Romain Jerome is now introducing a line of fountain pens to their Titanic DNA collection.

The pens (or writing instruments) are made from a variety of materials including palladium, brass, PVD, stainless steel and gold, and even feature a ring of oxidized steel “which is a fusion between actual material from the sunken vessel, and steel obtained from the Harland & Wolff shipyards, where the RMS Titanic was built.” The pen’s design also incorporates various elements taken from the constructive features of the ship including a spinning propeller that draws ink into the pen tip that can be seen through a sapphire glass porthole. The fountain pens were made by Jean-Pierre and Benjamin Lepine in collaboration with Romain Jerome CEO Yvan Arpa, and each variation will be limited to just 88 pieces.
