Is this a legitimate Montblanc reseller? Thanks.

I bought a pen from them a while back and it wasnt the smoothest of experiences but the pen was authentic. They originally quoted a 2-3 week delivery, I planned on 3-4, and it took 5 (something like that). The pen itself was great. You dont get MB warranty or free nib exchange so make sure you know what you want.

Thanks, all. 40-50% off retail for an authentic MB is hard to pass up. They do have very high end watches as well, so they must be legit. Perhaps the customer service reviews are poor and shipping times variable, but the prices can not be matched anywhere. Im not a MB expert, but I ordered a MB 147 traveler platinum fountain pen this week and it arrived in 2 days! The reason for this post is that everything about the pen, box, and warranty booklet look legit, but a couple of questions regarding authenticity:

1. The cap band reads MONTBLANC MEISTERSTUCK, there is no Pix. Is this ok?

2. The serial number starts with MB and the next letter or number looks like a G or a 6 (actually not a G or a 6, but Im not sure what this symbol is?!?). Then this symbol is followed by a letter, 2 numbers, 2 letters, and finally one number (9 total numbers/letters/symbol). There is no other marking such as Germany on the clip band.

3. The underside or inside of the clip reads Made in Germany METAL. It does not say Pix.

4. The nib is marked Au585 and StøD and MONTBLANC. There is no 14k or 18k stamp (not sure which it is?).

I know that MB changes these things periodically but I just want to decide whether I have a fake pen and should return it or not?

Thanks for any advice.

Their items are authentic. As stated above, customer service is spotty and they are not an authorized dealer so no free nib exchange or warranty, but items are authentic.

I've bought both pens and watches from Jomashop. All were authentic and no issues whatsoever.

+1 they are fine in my experience.  I bought a pen from them and it was fully authentic. They seem to be your standard grey market reseller.
