Montegrappa known for creations like the Ruby and Diamond fountain pen, the Russian collection and the batman collection, has for years been used by heads of states and scions of business alike. Their latest collection, the Centennial Dragon, includes three different sets of pens, including a one million dollar Centennial Dragon pen. Launched to commemorate the Italian brand’s 100th anniversary, the Centennial Dragon collection represents the brand’s amazing history. Montegrappa has chosen Dragon’s theme because the Dragon has been symbolic in the brand’s history, with the ‘Dragon’ pen launched in 1995 being one of their most popular pens. It was, in fact, used by Boris Yeltsin to formally hand over power to Vladimir Putin. The Centennial Dragon pen collection is divided into three different sets – 33 fountain pens in rose gold featuring black and white diamonds, 33 fountain pens in yellow gold with emeralds and white diamonds, and 33 fountain pens in white gold with blue sapphires and white diamonds. The 100th and final pen are the Centennial Dragon, worth a million dollars.
Each of the pens is numbered and will be launched in 2013. The million-dollar Centennial Dragon has been introduced this December. However the other 3 Centennial Dragon pens will be launched in 2013, with the Rose Gold and diamond version launching Q1 of 2013.
