Think it's the BEST LOOKING skeleton I've ever seen and it's amazingly beautiful!

Last week I ordered two bottles of "Blue Hour Fountain Pen Ink" from the Montblanc Boutique.

Got a call within a minute from same Boutique to verify my order for two "Blue Hour Skeleton Fountain Pens"

Almost had a heart attack.

Wow.  Not only a gorgeous pen, but a very nicely designed box.

 

Father's day is coming up in case anyone was thinking of giving me a present...

@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.

Someone better tell Montblanc that the 4 means "piston."

 

I present the Montblanc 147 cartridge pen.

Dunno what retail is, but erfobay on ebay had one up for $8900 USD.


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.)

Thank you all for your kind replies.
Just one remark, MB offers the pen in the box, no gizmos, no inkpot, no penstand, nadda, rien, nichts. A normal 149 has an inkpot in the box, not this one.

Alas not all 149 boxes come with ink.

I'm pretty sure if you buy it from an MB boutique, you can get at least one bottle of ink thrown in. :)

Good grief. That nib looks like it comes off a cheap Chinese pen.

The Montblanc boutique in Sydney gives you the pen for free but charges you $10K for the bottle of ink

Gorgeous pen!

The nib might have looked better with a more organic engraving that mimics the outside of the pen. But I could live with it  :)

Beautiful Pen, Thank you for sharing.

I am also contemplating on getting either the 90th skeleton or the Blue hour skeleton.

Would you care to give an estimated weight for each pen?

 

Thank you

Thanks for sharing this magnificent pen with us. The combination of blue and platinum is just stunning.

This is by far the most beautiful skeleton Montblanc has ever made.

Kind regards,

Sny
