~~~Special Edition! Worldwide sold out!~~~
The 100 Years Historical Fountain Pen was released as a Special Limited Edition in 2006 and only produced during that year. It was designed and marketed as a replica of the original Simplo Rouge et Noire safety filler c.1908, Montblanc’s first safety pen. Unlike the later Montblanc safeties, this model used a sliding (rather than twist) mechanism, that covered and exposed the nib like a sleeve. It is a pretty good replica of the original Montblanc safeties. The overall form, the domed end cap, the ‘bulb’ on the barrel, the shape of the section, the sliding sleeve, the ‘vintage proportions’, and even the nib, are decidedly reminiscent of the original. It should be noted that this modern reproduction of the Rouge et Noire uses ink cartridges only.
Montblanc celebrates its 100th anniversary by launching this Montblanc 100 Years Historical Collection, inspired by the historical Monblanc fountain pen shape. The fountain pen features black precious resin with gold-plated fittings. There is a historical Montblanc mountain engraving on the cap. The 18 karat gold nib inspired by the historical nib has the Montblanc star as heart hole for the fountain pen.
Cap: Screw-on cap is made from black (precious) resin. Single medium width gold filled cap band. Tapering G.F. ring top clip secured by, large domed end cap, having grooved sides. Large Montblanc 'snow cap' signet. Side of cap is heat stamped and white filled 'MONT- (mountain logo) BLANC'. Inside the cap there is mechanism which prevents cap being replaced when nib is still extended. The pen's individual serial number xxxxx / 15000 is engraved just below clip band. Cap can be posted on rear of barrel.
Barrel and Section: The three part barrel is again made from black (precious) resin. The centre body of barrel carries the metal cartridge housing which is connected to nib and feed assembly. This assembly slides within barrel. There are distinct 'click' stops at 'nib retracted' and 'nib extended' positions. A single gold filled band separates section and barrel. At the rear of barrel is the black resin slide mechanism cover, this un-screws from cartridge carrier for cartridge replacement. Primarily, from the users point of view, it is where by sliding up or down, the nib is either extended or retracted.
The gently tapered rear of slider has been made to accept pen cap for rear posting. A further two gold filled rings are located above and below the defined posting diameter. A gentle domed end to slider matches cap top.
