Montblanc has been setting the standards for fine writing instruments starting with their innovative idea to place the ink well directly into a fountain pen. From presidents, heads of states, celebrities and to those that just appreciate luxury, Montblanc is synonymous with success. In a famous 1963 exchange, President John F. Kennedy offered to German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer the use of his Montblanc Meisterstuck 149 fountain pen when the Chancellor found himself without a pen. With the finest materials and supreme artistry, everything that goes into the design and manufacturing of a Montblanc pen ensures everlasting use. For greater piece of mind, they provide a lifetime guarantee. Each one of the pens also has its own signature stamp on the nib: either 4810 (the actual height of Montblanc peaks) or 149. Montblanc also offers leather goods & pen accessories. These additional luxury goods share the same excellence in detailing and quality as the fine writing instruments.
In 2006 it became possible for loyal Montblanc customers to own an actual diamond in the shape of their adored logo. Montblanc became the first brand in the world to have patented a diamond shape. Montblanc has captured the excitement, allure and glamour of important figures through their limited edition collections celebrating such cultural icons as Grace Kelly, John Lennon and Albert Einstein. The company has generously donated proceeds from the sales of their pens to Unicef and the arts.
