MONTBLANC SKELETON 75th ANNIVERSARY FOUNTAIN PEN GOLD MINT, COMPLETE, DISPLAY!!





































THIS IS IT, FOLKS. HERE OFFERED FOR SALE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MODERN PENS, BELEIVED BY MANY TO BE A PEN OF ALL PENS, A HOLY GRAIL OF THE SKELETONIZED PENS, CREATED BY MONTBLANC TO COMEMMORATE ITS 75th ANNVERSARY.

MONTBLANC MASTER JEWELERS FIRST MADE A SOLID GOLD OVERLAY 149 MEISTERSTUCK - DIPLOMAT PEN, THEN COMPLETELY SKELETONIZED IT, REMOVING EVERYTHING BUT THE ESSENSE OF THE PEN, SO JUST THE SHAPE IS OUTLINED BY THE FINE LINES OF GOLD FILLIGREE. THEN THEY ENGRAVED EVERY MILLIMETER OF THE CREATION, WHEREVER IT WAS POSSIBLE TO ENGRAVE, AND EVEN WHEREVER IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE.

EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS WRITING INSTRUMENT EXUDES SUPERIORITY: ITS MAJESTIC SHAPE, ITS POWERFUL SYLHOUETTE, ITS INTRICATE ENGRAVINGS AND A MAGNIFICENT HUGE, RICHLY DECORATED DIPLOMAT NIB. NO DETAIL LEFT IGNORED, NO EFFORT SPARED. THE END RESULT WAS THE PEN UNHEARD OF BEFORE - A "SKELETON". PRIOR ONLY SEEN IN THE FINEST SWISS WATCH MOVEMENTS - A TRIUMPH OF A MASTER, THE SKELETON TECHNIQUE - ALLOWED ITS CREATOR TO BUILD AN OBJECT WITH MINIMAL PHYSICAL PRESENCE YET A FULLY FUNCTIONAL UTILITY ITEM SUCH AS AN ACCURATE SWISS WATCH MOVEMENT. ONLY A FEW MASTERS HAVE ACHEIVED SUCH PERFECTION IN THEIR LIFETIME; SIMILARLY TO MICHELANGELO'S DAVID - SAID TO BE A CREATION OF PERFECT PROPORTIONS - SKELETONIZED PENS ARE THE MOST DIFFICULT TO MAKE: "ONE HAS TO REMOVE EVERYTHING ELSE, BUT THE DAVID". THEY HAVE TO BE FULLY FUNCTIONAL AND YET MIRACULOUSLY TRANSPARENT, ALLOWING THE OWNER TO ADMIRE THE PISTON AND OTHER INNER WORKINGS. MASTERFULLY ALLOWING TO ACHEIVE INTIMATE PROXIMITY TO INK, WHILE CONTAINING THE PIGMENTOUS LIQUID SAFELY WITHIN......SEXY......LUXURIOUS.. ...PERSONAL.....SEDUCTIVE......RARE. ONLY SELECT FEW ARE ABLE TO ADMIRE ITS BEAUTY, WHILE A HANDFUL WERE FORTUNATE TO WITNESS ITS PRESENCE SINCE ONLY 75 PENS WERE PRODUCED TO MARK THE 75th ANNIVERSARY OF MONTBLANC IN 1999.

THE PEN IS EXECUTED IN SOLID 18K YELLOW GOLD. THOROUGHLY ENRAVED. EVEN INSIDE THE CAP AND ON ALL INNER PARTS, INCLUDING ITS MARVELOUS PATENTED TELESCOPIC PISTON WHICH BEARS THE NAME OF THE MASTER-ENGRAVER. PLEASE SEE THE DEATILED PICTURES.

IT COMES IN A BLACK LACQUERED BOX ALONG WITH A SPARE DEMONSTRATOR DISPLAY CASE THAT IS SUPPLIED TO SHOWCASE FINE DETAILS. THE DISPLAY BOX SPORTS A LAGRE BUILT-IN 8" LENS IN ITS TOP LID TO ALLOW PROPER MAGNINFICATION WHILE THE CASE BOTTOM HAS A MIRROR TO REFLECT BACK ALL THE INCOMING LIGHT, CREATING AN ILLUSION OF SUSPENDED LEVITATION, ALLOWING THE LIGHT TO PASS THROUGH FREELY.

PLEASE SEE THE ORGINAL IMAGES, I TOOK ALMOST 100 PICTURES AND STILL WANTED TO SHOW MORE......NEVER BEFORE SAW SUCH BEAUTY! I THINK IF ONE CAN FALL IN LOVE WITH UNANIMATE OBJECT, THIS ONE CAN BE IT!
