Last wednesday I got a mail from Dennis of La Couronne du Comte in Tiburg: " The blue skeleton was in the house!" Well Montblanc took us by surprise, it wasn't expected before september.  You can imagine how I spend this saturday.  Driving 70 km to Tilburg to admire Montblanc's latest beauty. And a beauty it is, the ice blue - platinum combination surpasses the red gold - grey combination of the 90th anniversary skeleton by miles. The strict geometric design of the platinum nib is just outrageous. The decision was quickly made, after a few months of display in Tilburg, it will be joining the 90th anniversary skeleton and the rest of the 149 gang. For those who can't go to Tilburg, I took some snaps with the iphone.

WOW! Very nice, thank you for sharing with us.


Current Wishlist:

Visconti, Visconti, and...more Visconti! (And some ST Duponts too). (Ok fine, getting on the Omas and Montblanc trains now too. Toot toot.) (And maybe on the Montegrappa one too, but only for the Miyas.)

Great acquisition, Opooh! Somehow, it looks a lot better than I thought on first glance...even the packaging looks pretty nice.

@Sampanel: See the label, it lists this as a model 149.  149 = #9 nib.  That's what the "9" stands for.  1 denotes Meisterstueck and 4 denotes piston filler.


Hard times don't last, but hard people do.

Thank a Veteran.

Nice photos and congrats on the great pen!

 

Just curious, from the label, it seems like a special edition instead of a limited edition (because no numbering). Am I right?
