Sleep too long and the newest A.T. Cross Chinese Zodiac pens will be sold out. But if you were born in this year of the Rooster, you are apt to be punctual. These Townsend fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints are covered in layers of rich, glossy, red lacquer; then topped with a red Swarovski crystal. Each pen is covered in detailed etchings of these reliable birds; the only fowl symbol in the Chinese Zodiac. Trimmed with 23k gold plated appointments, each special edition Year of the Rooster arrives in a luxury gift box, along with a booklet explaining the nuances of this significant moment in time.
