The real color is a lot brighter, like neon orange.
Great mechanical pencil overall, with great Caran d'Ache design and solid build.
However, it is maybe a little bit too light in my opinion (only 12g) and doesn't have a retractile tip. In the same price range, I would prefer the GraphGear 1000 over this one for its weight and functionality. But this one is absolutely more stylish and definitely looks better in a shirt pocket I think.
Its color makes it hard to lose I guess...
The color is more fluo neon orange than the metallic soft orange in the picture
