Hermes Nautilus Rollerball Pen!

After finishing a very nice meal in Osaka I received the bill and inside the folio I found an Hermes Nautilus.

The Nautilus is a capless pen produced by Pilot for Hermes and when it was released in October of last year for an eye-watering $1,670 USD I wrote it off (pun intended) as an overpriced Pilot Vanishing Point.

Well I was wrong…the pen amazed me to the point that I felt compelled to shoot a quick video of it:

It really feels wonderful in hand and the mechanism is butter smooth.  The rollerball version I used is slightly cheaper at $1,380 USD but if you are going to spend that much money you might as well get the fountain pen.

I am quite smitten with this pen but $1,670 is simply too much.  If they did a Pilot branded version for half the price I would buy it.
