Pilot Capless marks a special anniversary in 2023: 60 year of the iconic retractable fountain pen. In Japanese tradition, when an individual reaches the age of 60, they have completed five full cycles of the Jikkan Junishi (based on the Chinese Zodiac) and returned to their original birth sign. The term Kanreki stems from kan meaning return and reki denoting calendar and it is the celebration of 60 years.
During the Kanreki, people dress red elements because red holds immense significance across cultures and is considered a sacred color, symbolizing strength, rejuvenation, and the beginning of a new chapter in life. It brings luck and prosperity.
