An icon of writing culture, the Montblanc Meisterstück is a gifting favourite among Montblanc products, a precious treasure passed down from one generation to another. As it is handed to the next generation so are the stories, ideas and memories that the writing instrument carries with it making it a powerful symbol of love, education and the lasting bonds that unite generations. To celebrate the power of imagination and the importance of transmitting ideas and values to the ones we love, Montblanc released a special edition Meisterstück inspired by the much-loved literary character of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Le Petit Prince. One of the world’s most translated books with editions in more than 250 languages and dialects, the allegorical story about the chance encounter between a pilot and a little prince from a distant planet explores the universal themes of imagination, open-mindedness and the value of human relationships. With design elements based on Saint-Exupéry’s sensitive hand-drawn illustrations, the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince captures the book’s simple message that transmitting one’s dreams and values to others is what makes one’s life meaningful.
A drawing of the desert and aeroplane covers both the dark brown leather cap, which is linked to the aviator aethestic, and barrel of the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Solitaire Doué edition. Contrasting with the dark brown, the fittings are crafted from platinum-coated metal. Before travelling back to his asteroid, the little prince tells the pilot he will be able to hear his laugh any time simply by looking at the stars and remembering. As a reminder of the laughter in the stars, a golden star adorns the clip of this edition. At the summit of the edition, the Montblanc emblem is encircled by the fox’s words about human bonds, taken from St Exupéry’s novel: “Toutes les grandes personnes ont d'abord été des enfants.” (“All grown up people where first children.”)
The fountain pen uses a piston filling mechanism. The delicate Le Petit Prince sheaap design is engraved on the handcrafted 18K gold bicolor nib.
