Montblanc is one label that we can blindly rely on when it comes to exclusive and top-notch writing instruments. The brand has unfailing delivered since its conception in 1906, and in fact it has only gotten better through painstaking research and a passion for its craft over the years. Back in the year 1909, the marquee mesmerized us all with the introduction of the “Rouge et Noir”, which was further improvised upon time and again up until 2016.
Again, this year, the brand’s much revered Heritage Rouge & Noir collection sees the addition of two delightful writing wonders, each unique in form and structure. Both novel editions carry the signature serpent coiling around the top that draw back to the elegant vintage look of the brand’s 1920s pen clip design. The first in the collection is the elegant Montblanc Heritage Rouge & Noir Tropic Brown Special Edition which offers a visual tribute to the 20’s era with the incorporation of the colors that were used by the Maison back then. It features a unique brown on the cap and the lacquered barrel that references the natural ageing under the sun and humidity of the tropics, a color effect also seen on the ageing organic black ebonite of early Montblanc pens.
Next we have the luxe Solitaire Serpent Limited Edition 1906 that comes along with a mix of traditional silverware craftsmanship alongside the use of champagne toned gold-coated fittings and a brushed platinum-coated surface. While the Solitaire Serpent is available in Fountain Pen and a Rollerball versions, the Tropic brown is available in an additional Ballpoint variant as well. Make your own pick, as either of the two novel Montblanc’s are set to make an equally brilliant add to your pen collection!
