This is what a $20,000 (£16,270) pen actually looks like, and if you're thinking it resembles the lunar lander, then you'd be right!

The 'Astrograph' was created with inspiration from the moon landing - and it even features retractable landing gears.

The landing gears aren't the only feature though, there's also a launch pad that can perch on your desk.

There's even a little astronaut who is destined to be the first to land on your notepad.

The pen was designed in a joint venture between Caran d'Ache and MB&F.

The product website states: "The slim, curved body of Astrograph is immediately reminiscent of the outline of a space rocket and contains a total of 99 components, comprising a multitude of innovative features: a "detent" system of vertical stabilisation, launch-pad box, magnetic figurine..."

"It takes more than 500 manual operations to produce each instrument, quite simply the most complex writing instrument ever made in the Caran d'Ache workshops."

So if you're a diehard fan of the moon landing (or pens) you'd better start putting in the overtime because there are only 99 of these and they don't come cheaply.

This stylish stylus will set you back a staggering $20,000 - time to start saving those pennies!
