It’s not every day one gets to celebrate their 90th, and in the case of Montblanc’s Meisterstück, 90 years is no mean feat, especially when all the hype is over a pen. More specifically, the pen that we all grew up knowing to be superior and reliable, and more often than not, every man’s (or woman’s) first proper writing instrument when they entered the working world, and one we all wanted as a milestone of us entering adulthood. Which, on hindsight, makes the hype definitely worthy.
Fittingly, Montblanc will be celebrating this icon in a grand exhibition that will kick off on 2 August 2014 at Ngee Ann City’s Civic Plaza. Running for only 3 days till 4 August, you’ll be able to experience firsthand the evolution of Meisterstück through the years, illustrating its exquisite artistry and unmatched craftsmanship.
The Montblanc Meisterstück collection will also be unveiled during the exhibition, a specially-created capsule that includes a new line of fine watches, intricate jewellery and of course, luxurious leather goods will be made available for sale during the duration of the fête.
Depending on which style of instrument you prefer (I’m a Rollerball, by the way), the Montblanc Meisterstück collection will also feature a new line of writing instruments (#MEISTERSTUCK90YEARS) which have their nibs finished with 18k red gold. Choose from between ballpoints and elaborate fountain pens that will each come beautifully packaged in a box (and accompanying sleeve) that hails back to the original design used back in 1924. Which makes 2014 the 90th year. And given how they are so expertly made, good for another 90 more.
