Caran d’Ache unveils the Varius Rainbow, a subtle tribute to colour magnified by all the
company’s know-how. The latest addition to the emblematic Varius collection and a veritable ode to noble materials, it is the culmination of the passionate work of craftsmen
boasting age-old skills. Genuine must-have articles, the Varius Haute Écriture instruments combine technical innovation and sophisticated architecture in a surprising blend of textures. Precision and elegance offering unparalleled writing comfort – a wonder to hold and behold.
For this limited edition that truly reflects the company’s DNA, Caran d’Ache has dreamed up an exceptional icon combining unique design and craftsmanship in a metamorphose of
its core competency: the colour wheel. Colour after colour, the wheel takes the shape of
twelve triangles delicately lacquered by hand by the master craftsmen at Caran d’Ache.
A work of incomparable precision in which lacquering, polishing and guillochage come together to form a dazzling kaleidoscope of shapes and lights. The fruit of a meticulous
watchmaker’s corona-effect guillochage of unrivalled radiance, the silver-plated rhodium-coated body of the Varius Rainbow is truly captivating. Meticulously engraved then
lacquered, the enhanced sparkle of fine triangles reminiscent of pencil leads creates a
stunning contrast on the faceted cylinder.
