Pelikan M800 (Old Style)

In 1987 the M800 model was introduced. The bi-color gold nib was made of 14 carat gold. The cap had a brass jewel with the Pelikan logo. At the upper end of the filling knob was an undecorated gold-plated brass jewel.
Later models had a 18 carat two-tone gold nib (from catalog 1990/91).

The Pelikan logo was made to correspond to the type of pen, so that pens in a case could be rapidly identified; the fountain pen and ballpoint have black logos, the rollerball and pencil grey ones on a golden background. After 1997 all models have uniform colored logos.

In 1991 the engraving on the cap band changed from PELIKAN W-GERMANY to PELIKAN GERMANY.
Later the brass cap jewel disappears and the cap logo is changed from a cut-out to a screen-printed one (in 1997/1998). The brass jewel on the filling knob also disappears. The engraving is PELIKAN SOUVERÄN GERMANY.

Since 2003 the cap logo has been made in metal optics.

Pelikan M800 Limited Editions (Old Style)

In 1993 Pelikan introduced a limited edition model - very much the trend at that time both in fountain pens and for many other products - with the M800 Blue Ocean.

These official Limited Editions are shown on the site by the name of Limited Editions. Many other models were manufactured in limited quantities, too, e.g. company orders, but these are listed under the regular model number.

This is a unique one of a kind pen set. Probably it was a design made for the Swiss bank to become a promotional gift. But - According to Pelikan archives, this pen as an official series of pens has never been made.
Thus, there were only made some prototypes by Pelikan Hannover, but no clue yet, how many.
This set is the only one known so far.
The set was made around 1997. The logo UBS/SBG dates back to 1994 when it was registered, and it expired in 2001 - when UBS/SBG and SBV were merged and renamed to UBS.

Although planning for the Concerto limited edition had begun by the end of 1994, and the launch was  originally planned for the Christmas season 1995, the pen was eventually delivered in the 2nd quarter of 1996. Problems with the insertion of paint over chased sterling silver were responsible for the delay. This prototype shows a variant with black resin parts and a not yet colorized barrel. There are also other known prototypes with black resin parts and already colored barrel. The sales box (the lid of a grand piano) was completed for the prototype. Of course, this pen isn't numbered.

White Tiger
Pelikan presents the 3. limited edition from Chinese mythology. The 'White Tiger' has an edition of only 888 pieces. The '8' is true in China and the Far East as a lucky number.
The four auspicious animals are gods of the cardinal directions and make all spirits their shape. So the White Tiger is the deity of retribution. It is a strong sign that health and happiness promotes, protects the good and punishes the wicked. Because the White Tiger embodies these different qualities, it also symbolizes 'hope' and 'fear'.
Now the White Tiger by the skilled hands of absolute masters of their craft in Pelikan was presented beautifully and individually inverted on a fountain pen barrel. The barrel is made of solid 24 carat gold-plated 925 sterling silver.

Gekko means moonlight in Japanese. This fountain pen is made with the Australian abalone shell. Though the size of this abalone is big, the blue color part of this abalone is small. So it is necessary to select the best blue color parts. The abalone shell is placed on the ground and flattened with a hard stone into very thin sheets. These sheets are cut into narrow strips and then affixed to the coating of lacquer around the cap and the barrel of the M800 fountain pen. Once again, it is coated with lacquer, and then the surface is polished. The Pelikan logo is drawn with the famous Maki-e technique, surrounded by matching colors of particles of the abalone shell.
