MONTBLANC: 75th Anniversary 18K Gold Skeleton Atelier Privés Limited Edition 75 Fountain Pen
In 1999, to celebrate the company's 75th anniversary, Montblanc innovated a brilliant new concept that revolutionized the pen market forever: the skeleton pen. Taking the classic Meisterstück 149 Diplomat and paring it to its essentials, Montblanc revealed the perfection of the design by eliminating all superfluities. The result was this legendary instrument, the world's first skeleton pen and the most famous and desirable of all limited edition fountain pens.

The skeleton overlay is crafted of 18K solid yellow gold over a translucent precious resin barrel. The pen is engraved with elegant scrollwork on the rings, clip, inner captop and telescopic piston, and is signed by the master engraver. A brilliant-cut diamond adorns the section, and the captop star is luminous mother-of-pearl. The medium 18K gold nib, in large Diplomat size, is richly ornamented. Every detail, internal and external, reflects the highest standards of craftsmanship and design.

Pen is in excellent unused condition. Includes domed magnifying box, created by Montblanc exclusively to showcase this pen. Outer sleeve, outer boxes, display box & service guide are present. Limited Edition: 59/75.
