High Artistry The First Ascent of the Mont Blanc Limited Edition 86 Fountain Pen
High Artistry The First Ascent of the Mont Blanc Limited Edition 86 Fountain Pen

To honour the courageous pioneering of the first ascent to the Mont Blanc summit, Montblanc has created the High Artistry The First Ascent of the Mont Blanc Limited Edition 86. The walnut wood cap of the edition is artfully carved with images of alpine ibex and chamois in their native habitat on the slopes of the Mont Blanc. The barrel is made of vegetable tanned leather embossed with an excerpt from Balmat’s handwritten account of that historic day in 1786. Mountaineering shoe rivets provide the inspiration for the decorations on the Au 750 solid yellow gold fittings. The forepart in Au 750 solid yellow gold is engraved with a depiction of the Mer de Glace glacier near Chamonix. Based on the legend that this glacier resembles a giant monster hugging the northern slope of the Mont Blanc, the engraving is envisioned as a monster from the ancient stories. In memory of the triumphant first ascent to the summit of Western Europe’s highest mountain, the Au 750 solid yellow gold clip ring is engraved with the date ‘8 Août 1786’. The alpinist’s essential tools, alpenstock and axe, are miniaturised in the clip. In reference to the year of the first ascent of the Mont Blanc, the edition is limited to only 86 pieces. The cone is adorned with a granite cabochon while the cap top features a smoky quartz that can be detached to reveal the Montblanc emblem made of mother-of-pearl embedded in black onyx underneath. The handcrafted Au 750 solid yellow gold nib is decorated with a 3D relief depicting the edelweiss flower.
