One often associates certain types of goods with specific brands. Think luxury sports car and one naturally pictures a Ferrari or Lamborghini. Think aluminium luggage and Rimowa comes to mind. And for quality writing instruments, more often than not it’s Montblanc.
After my brief introduction on pens from Montblanc’s entry-level Meisterstück collection the last time, there were quite a few emails asking for specific prices and further elaboration, which will also explain today’s post. First created in 1924, today’s Meisterstück collection is divided into 2 broad lines, the Classique (think elegant and slim) and Le Grand de Montblanc (bigger, thicker, with a little weight in them).
A great graduation gift for someone who’s about to enter the working world, or just a great gift in general, you’ll find fountain-pens, ballpoint pens, rollerballs and even mechanical pencils in the line-up, and depending on whether it is for a guy or a girl, different lengths and thicknesses.
Available in both gold-plated and platinum-plated variations, they have at least 17 different models plated either way, not including the mechanical pencils. Like I mentioned before, prices start from just SGD500 for a gold-plated Meisterstück Mozart ballpoint (rollerballs start from SGD500, fountain pens from SGD700), which isn’t so bad if it is meant for marking a milestone in one’s life, right?
And if you’re still not sure which model will make the best gift (or the perfect pen for yourself), just head down to any Montblanc boutique and ask to try them all out to your hearts’ content. I do it the time and no, they don’t mind.
