Thanks for posting this.  I like the white gold one.  Knowing Moore's work, I think it's very well done.

Hideous pen! (imho)

 

I, too, like Moore's work - but I feel Montblanc have missed it by a mile, here.

 

Not that Montblanc will mind, I was never in the market for this. It costs more than my annual income.

 

Thanks for info, though.

That is one of the most overwrought, ostentatious, grossly embellished pens I've seen from MB...and they've made quite a few over the past several years.

 

Perhaps they can make a Henry Miller edition in the form of a...well, if you know his work you can guess! Perhaps as a protest gesture I'd buy that one.

The pen is size 146 and very heavy - according to MB it is the pen up to now with the most total gold used. The surface has a very nice touch and feel - the design is clearly Henry Moore, especially when you move it around in your hand. Whether it appeals or not is a different story....

It doesn't appeal to me, and won't impact my purse :)

 

Each to their own though. :)

Is it just me or does it look like it's a quasi-demonstrator model? 

(Makes me think of the Pilot 823 in grey/amber...)

Thanks for posting although it does not appeal to me that much, maybe next years offering will.


Money may not make you happy but I would rather cry in a Rolls-Royce
