M620 Berlin, with either the OB nib that's in it now, or swapped for the BB that's currently in my M600 dark blue transparent (which is quite good-looking too!).

Out of the ones I own: M800 Renaissance Brown.

 

But the M800 Tortoise has to be one of the most beautiful Pelikans to me. Would love to own one someday...

I don't own them anymore, but M800 Brown tortoise and M805 Vibrant blue.
Nice pens, inconsistent nibs. Never again.

Bill, does your missus know you're two-timing her?

 

My favourite just might be my 101 in jade.

The M101n Brown Tortoise. Followed by the M400 brown tortoise.

 

Same here!  My M400 is from the 80's, without gold trim rings on the section and knob, which I like.

:lol:

 

Pens and watches... yes, she knows.  And I know about her quilting and fabric obsession too.  In fact, since she has retired we've received far more deliveries of fabric than of pens and watches combined.

 

Ah, the jade.  I imagine if I owned one I would also consider it my loveliest pen as well.

That's gorgeous. Love the light reflecting off the pen onto the right side of the notebook paper next to it.

Too hard to say.... well, maybe the M805 Ocean Swirl and my very first Pelikan, a M400Tortoise Old Style from 1986.

If I only could keep one? - hard decision!

It could be this:

...or this:

Hard to choose between my M800 Brown Tortoise and my M400 White Tortoise. But I have to give the points to the White Tortoise. Next week, who knows?

What a pen! If I didn't have a maximum amount I'd be willing to pay, that would probably be a grail pen.
