I fell in love with the look and feel of this pen. It feels good on the hand when writing.
The pen does wear down very quickly. After using it 4-5 days a week for a year, the entire rose gold guilloche on the bottom half of the barrel has worn off. The Versace clip is also worn and shows the stainless steel through the rose gold. The black resin greek key trim is also showing signs of fading.
I've babied this pen from the beginning. When it's not in use, it sits in a drawer in my desk. It has never lived anywhere besides my hand, the top of my desk and in the drawer.
I'm disappointed that a $300 nice pen can only lasts a year. Given what I know, I would not purchase this same pen again.
