Not just anyone can pull off such out-of-the-box product ideas. Hidden behind this brand's inverted TF logo is Freddy T (Freddy D. Tschumi), a man molded by his experience in the field of product manufacturing. He clearly enjoys shaking up the notoriously sleepy luxury goods marketplace.
Swiss-born Tschumi, cut his teeth on the fringes of the luxury and watchmaking industries. In 2010, Freddy T founded his own brand TF EST. 1968. It recognizes his birth date. Marked by a total lack of convention, TF Est. 1968, never hesitates to deviate from the norm.
The Tourbillon Open Side ballpoint entices you to spend countless time peering inside its transparent side and top at what appears to be a perpetual watch movement. In fact, what you are seeing is a portion of an authentic watch movement. Of course, the scratch-proof sapphire crystal resembles one found on a fine timepiece.
Each TF EST. 1968Tourbillon Open Side is individually numbered. The upper half of the body is surrounded by embossed fine leather and X – stitched in French style. The clip is substantial and reassuring. The ballpoint mechanism is supplied by Schmidt Technology. It’s a twist to deploy. The pen’s entire feel is one of precision and high value. The finishes are superb, the leather details refined. The choice of potential refills is substantial from fine to broad in up to 31 various colors. The presentation box makes this an exceptional gift to a friend or associate; they probably don’t have one of these!
