Cross The Alonzo Townsend Cross Company has been around forever - or so it seems. Everyone around with style seems to have a Cross pen.

From styles like the rollerball to the elegant fountain pen, Cross pens have established a prominent position in the marketplace.

Some people know Alonzo T. Cross assisted in the design of Rhode Island's first stem powered motor car, which he owned.

Cross went successfully from the powered motor car industry to his famous pens.

Today, the collection has emerged into a variety of styles, including precious metals and hand-polished lacquers. From ball point pens to 0.5 mm pencils, the finishes are now available in tuxedo, chrome and even translucent.

The Townsend Tuxedo, as shown below, is a ball point pen made of sterling silver. Each Townsend is numerically serialized for individual identification and enrollment in the Cross Write Back Loss Protection Policy. This pen retails for $85.

In addition, the Century II, a branch of the Classic Century, is a much larger design. This elegant pen is one of the thickest writing instruments available by Cross.

Business travelers love the 22K gold plated Century II ball point pen. Its professional look is both elegant and stylish.

This pen, also shown, retails for $75.

Cross pens are a great gift and can even be sent as a gift while away traveling on vacation.
