Celebrating nine decades of unmatched craftsmanship, Montblanc
introduced its Meisterstück 90 Years Collection in 2014. First manufactured in 1924 in Hamburg, Germany, Meisterstück has become emblematic of a constant quest for perfection, which is reflected in the 90 Years Collection. A series of iconic writing instruments, this collection features the quintessential 149 Fountain Pen, the Classique and LeGrand Fountain pens, and the Rollerball and Ballpoint. Artfully crafted in precious black resin, each writing instrument is adorned with red gold-plated fittings and is offered in a distinct gift box wrapped in a 1924 replica sleeve. Those that choose the fountain pen will especially enjoy the elegantly engraved (Au750/Au585) solid red gold nibs.
A special edition assortment of writing instruments, available only the year of the anniversary, further highlights Montblanc’s savoir-
faire with the Fountain Pen, Rollerball and Ballpoint Pens in Classique size. These pens feature elegant guilloche engraving coated with a black lacquer, mother-of-pearl Montblanc emblem, red gold-plated fittings, and Au750 gold nibs with a special 90 Years design. Montblanc also celebrates this anniversary with the launch of a new Skeleton Fountain Pen, a reinterpretation of the first Skeleton Pen created in 1999 for the Meisterstück 75th Anniversary. The redesigned pen comes with a delicately skeletonized, ruthenium-plated cap and barrel and is topped by the Montblanc emblem. Its ruthenium-plated fittings and special 90 Years design engraved on an Au750 solid red gold nib make it a distinct, commemorative piece. Paying tribute to the spirit of Meisterstück that runs throughout Montblanc’s history, the Limited Edition 90 completes the writing instrument offerings. Both fountain pen and rollerball in LeGrand size with their exquisite
designs are each limited to 90 pieces. They feature a cap ring set with 90 diamonds, solid red gold attributes with elegant guilloche engraving, a mother-of-pearl Montblanc emblem, and Au750 gold nib with rhodium-plated inlay with special 90 Years design.
The Montblanc Meisterstück 90 Years Collection was made available in April 2014 in Montblanc boutiques worldwide. For more information, please visit montblanc.com.
