In use, the Montegrappa Extra APC1 looks and feels like a traditional pen.
The Apple Pencil can be effortlessly inserted into the body of the Extra APC1 after unscrewing the cap from the barrel.
To charge the pencil, one simply removes the cap of the Extra APC1, then the tiny cap of the Apple Pencil and inserts the connector into the iPad.
The Extra APC1 is available in Black & White pearlised celluloid and Sterling Silver trim. The details of this beautiful instrument are simply gorgeous. A sleek and sinuous pocket clip is fitted with Montegrappa’s signature rotating sphere. The cut-out Greek motif onto the cap's band recalls the Extra 1930.
As Montegrappa creates writing instruments to last a lifetime, the Extra APC1 will never be obsolete: when the Apple Pencil itself is not needed, the user can replace it with a special ballpoint pen refill, clad in anodised aluminium. This simple act transforms the Extra APC1 in an elegant ballpoint pen.
This innovative instrument combines technology and craftsmanship with the Italian flair that could only mean Montegrappa.
