The Montblanc Writers Edition Homage to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Limited Edition is dedicated to one of the world’s most renowned crime writers, who created the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes. The brown colour of the lacquer refers to the pipe that Sherlock Holmes often smoked – an element that is also taken up by the cap and the wooden cone. In addition to a detail from a historical map of London, a check pattern adorns the cap and body of this edition, referencing Sherlock Holmes’ coat. The clip is inspired by the magnifying glass that Sherlock Holmes used. The silhouette of a dog made of luminescent pigments appears behind the clip, referencing the novel “The Hound of the Baskervilles” from the Sherlock Holmes series. The cap ring features the signature of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the logo from “A Study in Scarlet”, the first case of Sherlock Holmes. The Montblanc emblem in precious mother-of-pearl crowns the cap of this edition. The handcrafted nib made of solid 750 gold is adorned with engravings of a portrait of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and a magnifying glass referring to Sherlock Holmes.
Patron of Art – Homage to Napoléon Bonaparte – The piston fountain pen is dedicated to one of the historical figures who left a lasting mark on the history of Europe. Napoleon’s glory is expressed in the “architecture parlante” – famous buildings that were erected during his reign and still characterize the Parisian cityscape today.
However, not only architecture flourished during this period, but also other art forms such as painting, sculpture and decorative arts. The design of this creation is inspired by neoclassicism. The pattern of golden bees against a dark blue lacquered background is a reference to Napoleon’s throne at Fontainebleau. The sword-shaped clip, on the other hand, features the former French emperor’s unmistakable “N”. And the engravings in the cap’s head – a laurel leaf, an imperial crown and an eagle – are borrowed from Napoleon’s insignia. The cap is crowned by the Montblanc emblem in precious resin. The tip of the clip is adorned with a red stone reminiscent of Napoleon’s wife Joséphine’s coronation ring. As a tribute to Napoleon Bonaparte, the handmade nib – made of solid 750 gold – features his portrait, in which he wears the typical two-pointed hat.
In the extra limited 888 version, Montblanc plays with all their craftsmanship and exclusive materials.
For the next strategy meeting, Napoleon-style notes can also be captured in the appropriately designed notebook.
