From the Golden City to the world

Noble writing instruments are characterized by a variety of features. From the material and the design to the smallest detail, all aspects must work well together to create an inspiring and fascinating result. Personal taste is the decisive factor here. This one is quite simple, as Oscar Wilde once said: you settle for the best. With Otto Hutt, this is always the case. The art of guilloche dating back to the 17th century is still being perfected today in Otto Hutt’s own manufactory.

Special surfaces not only complete the aesthetic moment but also enhance the writing experience. In the process of guilloche, fine, geometrically arranged lines are cut into the workpiece using a razor-thin knife. This results in unique patterns and embellishments that delight and inspire. Otto Hutt performs various types of guilloche, such as strip, thread, check, wave as well as grain guilloche and much more – all that the heart desires. The process became famous with the filigree Fabergé eggs. Today, only a few manufactories still master this intricate craft. But Otto Hutt still honors this technique as a part of the Golden City. A craftsmanship that combines precision and creativity. As a well-known jewelry and watchmaking city, the location of Pforzheim offers suitable conditions for perfecting the manufacturing processes.

In the creations, moreover, countless layers of lacquer are applied and polished by master craftsmen. This creates a flawless coloration with incomparable depth. The extremely robust surface structure ensures a pleasant feeling when writing.

The different and unique surfaces give each writing instrument an exquisite touch. Between the poles of modernity and nostalgia, Otto Hutt artfully combines both: with this craft, CNC-controlled guilloching machines are used additionally. Tradition thought modern.
