This is my small contribution to an object that fascinates me from the first day I saw it.

 

I want to share this chart of all Montblanc Bohème models launched until today.

I included "Noir et noir" and "Rouge et noir" models, which are almost identical to the Bohème but whose names were changed because of copyright issues.

The hardest part of the work was finding the years when each model has been produced, in fact I could not complete the chart in that sense.

I think that companies should put historical information about all their models on their websites, but for some unknown reason they do not.

I see a lot of times questions about Bohème models, if one model in particular did ever exist or not, and so on. I hope this chart can clarify some doubts.

If you find any mistakes, do not hesitate to let me know.

 

Have a good day,

leftyjo

Thank you so much for this, great work.

I love the Boheme and have ended up with 11 of them ..... Didn't know about the Purple though, would love one of those!

The purple is a mistery for me. I saw it only a few times on eBay and I'm sure it was an original MB. But I never saw one in real life and there is no information online about that pen.

Outstanding work, not much of a Boheme collector myself (a little rare to find in my area) but it's a fascinating pen, no doubt.

 

Thank you very much for this.
