Is this fake or genuine Montblanc website?

 

https://www.montblancinstrument.com/

 

Has anyone purchased from them?

I am not especially familiar with online retailing in India, but when I looked at the Web site it said in large letters that one could have a flat 60% off upon request and that the sale ends tonight.

 

Does that seem even a little bit believable? Is it the type of offer Montblanc would countenance? Of course it may be that I am an extremely lucky fellow to have clicked on the link on the *very last day* when the discount was available. Perhaps we will soon hear from satisfied customers who didn't get that very fortunate 60% off, but are happy with their pens. Let us see.

I contacted the customer care and I was told that the pens are unsold pices of 3 year old manufacturing.

Definitely fake, they have a lot of LE pens at odd prices and then there is 60% off at checkout. 

They even have LE pens from 2004.

 

The G.C Miles Davis FP is listed at £250, with 60% off it checks out at £100.  laugh.png

 

I am sure there would be enough people to clear out their entire inventory at such 'genuine' prices.

and they have practically listed the entire MB catalogue.

Must be a really well connected dealer/wholesaler/retailer/SCAMMER.  lticaptd.gif lticaptd.gif

 

The MB logo on the 'offer banner' is black on white rather than the other way round.

They're using a drop shadow on their company logo.  What is this, 1990?!  Definitely fake.

I don't understand how Montblanc can tolerate this.
