Astronaut on the Caran d'Ache and MB&F Astrograph

Ground Control To Major Tom, “Help Is On Its Way!”: Astrograph By Caran d’Ache and MB&F

Caran d’Ache is a Geneva-based manufacture of pencils and fountain pens. And Caran d’Ache is a manufacture in the true sense of the word ― much like MB&F, one of today’s most forward-thinking watch brands. Even though the two manufactures generally exhibit very different design language, they have come together more than successfully for the exceptional Astrograph, a pen that is also an MB&F Machine.

Like the just plain amazing Caelograph, which allows one to see the position of the stars and the constellations.
