We don’t know a whole lot about this wild looking pen, but we do know that it is an homage to the genius Leonardo da Vinci. The fountain pen is a Limited Edition of 3000 pieces and features a cap and body made of anodized aluminum. The rest of the hardware is platinum plated, except for the the gear on the clip which is rose gold plated.
Every detail of the design directly reflects the original sketches of flying machines and the mechanical constructions created by Leonardo da Vinci. The wedge shapes are reminiscent of his method to connect mechanical parts to one another. The design of a wing engraved on the section and the bat on the nib pay homage to his study on the characteristics of flying animals, while the mirror on top of the cap, which reveals the Montblanc emblem, is a reference to his research in the field of optics.
This edition, which honors one of the greatest pioneers of science, will be available in November at a MSRP of €2830. We’ll provide more information as soon as we have it.
