A serpent coils its way through Montblanc’s new heritage collection in honor of the brand’s first line of fountain pens. This year marks Montblanc’s 110th anniversary and, to celebrate, the company has released the Montblanc Heritage Collection, Rouge & Noir, The Serpent editions. The collection hearkens back to the brand’s first line of fountain pens, Rouge & Noir, as well as its line from the 1920s, which featured writing instruments fashioned with a serpent clip. The signature snake can now be found in all of the items in the new collection, from the sterling silver tie bar to the limited edition timepiece. The Ultimate Serpent Limited Edition 1 pen is the centerpiece of the collection and features approximately 1,950 pave-set sapphires, 153 diamonds and an 18-karat solid rose gold piece. It also boasts the most gold ever used in a Montblanc fountain pen. The other items in the collection, such as the Montblanc 110th Anniversary Steamer Bag, are similarly luxurious. Based on the bags used by travelers during the early 20th century, the carryall features soft black leather with a red serpent, applied by hand, emblazoned on the front and back. A symbol of life and rebirth, the serpent emblem evokes the creative vitality inherent in the Montblanc brand—a fitting symbol for a company whose legacy endures on and on. Limited to just one piece worldwide, Montblanc’s ULTIMATE SERPENT LIMITED EDITION 1 writing instrument—capped by an approximately 6.155-carat Montblanc Diamond—is the crowning achievement of the collection, price upon request, at montblanc.com. Montblanc’s red gold SERPENT CUFF LINKS are available in three different versions with ruby, sapphire or emerald eyes, price varies, at montblanc.com. The 110TH ANNIVERSARY STEAMER BAG is lined with suede and features a snakeskin handle and straps, price upon request, at montblanc.com.
