The Complication

A Tribute to the Swiss Watchmaking Trade

The “Complication” fountain pen pays homage to the Swiss watchmaking trade for all the innovations in precision mechanics it has achieved. Inspired by the craftsmanship of the Swiss masters, Chavdar Chushev, saw the miniature details in the the watches as ideal specimens for abstract art compositions. From that moment, he spent the next three decades refining his technique and evolving his creative vision. The sophisticated design of the “Complication” is the result of countless artistic iterations and technological evolutions.

The individual watch components which include gears, screws, and crowns are expertly cast in sterling silver. This technique allows for the pen’s elements to perfectly resemble the original components.The process of creating the “Complication” emulates that of manufacturing a timepiece in that each individual piece is painstakingly arranged in its place to create a product that endures in its function and captivates through its appearance.
