Did you ever notice someone using one of those classy looking pens topped with what appeared to be a snowcap? First time I spotted one I instinctively knew that it was something special. With Google’s help, I discovered that it was a Montblanc, arguably the most finely engineered, handcrafted writing instrument in the world. In the early 1900’s, the German based company first introduced the Meisterstuck fountain pen with its iconic white, six-pointed, rounded edge snowcap symbolizing Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Swiss Alps at a staggering 15,771 feet. Montblanc International along with Cartier. Chloe, Baume et Mercier and Van Cleef and Arpels is now owned by the Richemont group. They produce a variety of luxury goods including pens, bags, watches, fragrances, watches and jewelry.
