On the occasion of the automobile’s 100th anniversary and the release of the BMW Individual 7 Series THE NEXT 100 YEARS limited edition, Montblanc introduces the “Montblanc for BMW” Centennial Fountain Pen, a writing instrument designed to accompany each of the 100 vehicles.
Limited to just 100 pieces worldwide, the centennial piston fountain pen blends the iconic Montblanc Meisterstück 149 balanced proportions with design details inspired by the elegant and streamlined aesthetics of the new BMW car. Inspired by the distinctive pattern used on the BMW Individual fine-grain Merino leather interior of the special BMW Individual 7 Series THE NEXT 100 YEARS, Zaim Kamal, Creative Director at Montblanc International, and Karim Habib, Head of BMW Design, created the intricate grid of the skeletonized metal cap and barrel in a joint effort. Through the cut-out rhodium-plated grid pattern, the vibrant blue of the transparent precious resin mirrors the unique colour of the car lacquering. In reference to the BMW 7 Series, the Au750 rhodium-plated gold nib is engraved with the BMW “7” pattern.
The limited edition writing instrument is accompanied by its own special leather accessory. The blue pen pouch in full-grain calfskin referring to the colour of the car lacquering features a compartment for the fountain pen. The leather is embossed with the skeleton pattern featured on the writing instrument’s design with a Montblanc emblem inside a palladium-plated ring.
