Since 1922, the name Diplomat has stood for sophisticated writing instruments. Driven by excellence in quality and a spirit of innovation the manufacture for turned fountain pens developed into a leading manufacturer of premium writing instruments. In the 1950's, the Diplomat ball point pens were amongst the very first of their kind in Germany. Innovative technical solutions such as the first modern fountain pen, presented in 1958 as alternative to the converter fountain pen, were defining moments in the company's history. Today Diplomat offers a well balanced range of highest quality writing instruments with unbeatable value for money.
