MONTBLANC: James Watt 18K Gold Limited Edition 74 Skeleton 83 Fountain Pen *Sealed*
Tribute to Scotsman James Watt, whose engineering innovations powered the Industrial Revolution, making him one of the key figures of modernity. The skeletonized 18K white gold barrel and cap, with oversized flywheel motif, represent the "parallel motion" linkage system of Watt's revolutionary steam engine, while the clip recalls Watt's double-weighted centrifugal governor. A brilliant design. Still sealed in the manufacturer's original plastic sheathe.

Medium 18K gold nib engraved with a draft horse, symbol of horsepower. Outer box, inner box, lacquered wood display box, booklet. Limited Edition: 45/83.
