This new writing instrument expresses Montblancs fine writing culture in the distinctive design language of Marc Newson. Reduced to its essentials, the name MONTBLANC M echoes the purity of the design. As a connecting element, the letter M stands for Newsons first name as well as for Montblanc. Made of black precious resin, the writing instruments fluid lines flow gently into one another (expressing a visionary design). To achieve an absolutely even plateau on the barrel, the white Montblanc emblem is ultrasonically welded on to the barrel, then milled with a diamond tool to form a perfectly flat surface. The innovative cap-closing mechanism utilizes magnetic force for an astonishing effect. Upon closing the writing instrument, the cap automatically aligns with the Montblanc emblem embedded in the plateau of the writing instrument. The Au585 gold nib of the fountain pen is crafted in a process of over 30 steps, plated with rhodium and ruthenium. Comprising Fountain Pen, Rollerball, Ballpoint Pen, ScreenWriter and a new Artfineliner, Montblanc M represents a new generation of writing instruments.
