Montblanc White Lacquer Solitaire Classique: Does The Plating Wear Off?



LuckyKate

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

This is my first post on the Montblanc forum. I'm interested in the white lacquer Solitaire Classique in either the rose gold or rhodium finish. However, as I've read that rose gold is not sturdy and wears easily, I'm concerned that the pen would lose its plating, not just on the nib but on the entire section. Is this something I should be concerned about given how expensive the pen is? And would the rhodium/platinum plating be sturdier and less prone to wear? I really love this pen's finish, but am concerned about how well it would hold up.

 

Thanks for your help!

Thanks so much for the helpful responses! It's good to hear that the red gold/rose gold is sturdy! I also noticed that the step and threads on the red gold version of this pen is far less pronounced than the silver version/

I have the rose version of the pen you asked about. It doesn't get a ton of use but I have never had a problem. Probably my favorite pen.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
