MontBlanc Writing Instruments need no introduction, and yes they are expensive, but no it is not just a pen. Everyone needs to write with a nice pen,everyone should have a premium pen and you know deep down you actually want one!
We all do it, walking past the shops in the airport or the jewellers on the High Street, you look in the window, and think, ‘yeah…yeah!’
This MontBlanc though breaks the mould a little in my opinion. It has a much more mordern design and look than that of the classic Meisterstück,for example.
The finish as you should expect is impecable, and again as you would expect the writing experience is refined and perfect.
Try it some day and try it in a store, it is an experience. The pen will be presented to you with a pad. The sales person will most likely be wearing gloves as they handle the pen, the pad will be branded, high quality and heavily weighted paper and you will be free to write, sign, doodle…whatever.
And you will enjoy it, the buying experience will add to the overall enjoyment of owning the pen, a premium pen that the most common comment you are likely to hear as you use it, is probably something like, ‘Wow, it that a real one?’
I am a fan of a nice pen, with it being mightier than the sword and such, it is always worth writing with a nice pen.
I was lucky enough to receive a Brietling Pen for Christmas 2015 and as much as I have tried I have been able to find out very little information about it.
What I do know is that it is rare and probably originated from a Breitling Authorised Dealer. What I also know is that it is a quality writing instrument, well made, even more well finished and like all things Breitling, supremely cool!
The finish is a hard plastic, each of the letters moves, it feels tough and sturdy – however the important things with a pen are grip and writing quality. The pen is comfortable, and the ink smooth, although the original refill is a little wet, meaning depending on how you hold the pen, or if you are left handed it may cause smudging. This is easily sorted however as the pen takes a standard Parker Style refill. IT’s a great pen. For me though it is more of a collector’s piece. With the box tucked safely away in storage and the pen in a quality leather sheath, I am happy to say I own one of these rare items, and frequently keep an eye out for another – just to have as a daily user!
