In the year of its 90th anniversary, Tibaldi has been commissioned by Sony Pictures to develop the official collection of luxury writing instruments celebrating The Da Vinci Code movie.
The Da Vinci Code limited edition pen is an opulent, precious work of art, whose mechanical reliability and precision reflect that of luxurious timepieces.The golden number occurs constantly in nature.
It was first recognized during the XIII century
when the mathematician Fibonacci discovered
an extraordinary mathematical sequence, where
each number equals the sum of the two previous numbers.
in the XVIII century, a further mathematical relationship
between the numbers was discovered.
Every number is approximately 1.618 times larger
than the number that precedes it.
Phi, the concept known as the Divine Proportion, has been invoked in every aspect of the design and development of The Da Vinci Code pen's components. The golden number (1.618) is present in each and every part of its awesome structure.
In The Da Vinci Code (the movie), phi unlocks the code to understanding a critical message.
Deciphering the letters and symbols, which decorate the pen's cap, reveals the words which, in the story, enable the cryptex to be opened.
The cap top is richly engraved with the suggestive symbol of the rose (embedded into a silver/gold frame), also characterizing the lid of the cryptex box. It features a square section at the top, gradually tapering to the round ring at its base.
The striking nib is solid 18K gold, partially rhodium plated and engraved with the movie's official logo (DVC). Rhodium is only applied outside the contours of the logo, requiring the skill of an experienced goldsmith.
The Da Vinci Code pens are produced as a numbered limited edition, reflecting the divine proportion and the phi coefficient:
Even the exclusive pen's accompanying case - a reproduction of the movie's cryptex box, a guardian of ancient secrets - is measured in multiples of the phi coefficient.
The filling system is a "perfected" piston filling mechanism, secured by exclusive Tibaldi patent; the blind cap rotates through a 32 teeth mechanism (multiple of phi number) and gives the same sound and feel as manually winding a watch crown.
