The collectors of Montblanc expensive pens, both its vintage models and it’s newer limited editions, will be crazy about its most recent limited edition luxury pen (or should I say luxury jewellery piece?).
Montblanc is releasing a one-of-a-kind diamond pen with singular features, paying tribute to an unlikely historical figure. The brand’s High Artistry Homage to Hannibal Barca celebrates Hannibal Barca (247 – between 183 and 181 BC) a Punic military commander from Carthage, known for his military tactics and strategy. Barca may have had his swords, but Montblanc’s pens are proverbially mightier; this collection certainly is. All the pens are beautiful, but only one will catch the eye of the discerning collector: the High Artistry Homage to Hannibal Barca Limited Edition.
Priced at almost $2 million, this pen liberally uses diamonds, white gold and sapphires. On the cap is an elegant elephant whose trunk forms the clip, the elephant is of course covered with hand-cut and handset diamonds.
The diamond pen is equipped with the Au750 solid gold nib, itself adorned with designs representing the Carthaginian deity Baal’Hammon as well as two hand-cut diamonds. Engravings on the cone ring reference military armour worn by the Punic Army.
Priced at €1.5 million, this pen is a most fitting tribute to a general who when warned that it would be impossible to cross the Alps on the back of an elephant, famously said, “Aut viam inveniam aut faciam,” (“I will either find a way or make one.”)
