Notice the C shaped like on the brand's logo, as a basis for the clip.

The inside of the cap is coated with plastic. So a plastic inner thread. A bit disappointing.

The only engraving on the pen (besides the serial number at the barrel's end, but it is very small).

This nib is simply beautiful.

The wings on the feed are very thin

A little close-up on the closing mechanism.

All in all, a great pen, that is, if you don't mind finger marks everywhere on it ;)

Beautiful pen an nice review Olivier, congratulations !
As what concerns the plastic female thread in the cap, I think this is technically a perfect approach.
Making the male and female mating threads in the same material creates potential risks for gripping and fretting - hence wear - between the mating threads.
So - at least in in my opinion - Cartier made a wise decision in using different materials !

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

Who makes the nib and feed? The feed looks identical to the ones fitted to 146 and the nib is very similar in shape...
In case you wish to write to me, pls use ONLY email by clicking here. I do not check PMs. Thank you.

@ Fountainbel : it's indeed the best technical solution. Not the most beautiful maybe.

@ Hari : I have no information about this, but your suggestion is valid, since there was a little Cartier cartridges box in the pen's box, and those are stamped Montblanc. *Edit* Also, Cartier is part of Richemond, as Montblanc is.

Cartier makes their own nibs and feeds...They started making pens before they made their tarted up jewlrey. ;)

I just noticed, by chance, that on the clip (on the hidden side), there was "Germany" engraved.

This makes me think that the pen was made by Montblanc for Cartier. Synergies, oh synergies.
