All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honour, duty, mercy, hope Sir Winston Churchill
Paying tribute to the worldwide known statesmen and Nobel price winner: Sir Winston Churchill. The limitation refers to the year in which Churchill has been knighted by Queen Elisabeth II, 1953. Sir Winston Churchill (a dedicated Montblanc fancier) was voted the greatest Briton of all time for his courageous dedication to the cause of freedom. This stout, elegant pen testifies to the great Briton’s iron will and determination, while the pen’s radiant facets reflect the light of hope he gave to his countrymen in Britain’s darkest hour. The barrel is crafted of 18 karat pink gold, inlaid with black and brown tortoiseshell lacquer bands. The captop is ringed with 53 precious diamonds (to commemorate the year in which Churchill was both knighted and bestowed the Nobel Prize for Literature). The Montblanc star is of lustrous mother-of-pearl. The great statesman’s legendary “V for Victory” sign is echoed in the design of the clip. 18K 750 gold Medium (M) nib engraved with Churchill’s portrait. It comes with black lacquered presentation box, outer illustrated box (it has a tear, circa 3.5cm, see photo), outer white cardboard box, booklet/International Reply Card (duly stamped, purchased on May 25th 2006 at Montblanc London, Burlingron Arcade Boutique) and certificate of authenticity.
Notice for MB Artisan Collectors: This pen’s aesthetic and historic virtues, in combination with its uncommon miniature size, heft, and undeniable magnetism, make it perhaps Montblanc’s proudest achievement in modern limited edition pens. This model is actually very hard to come by. Scarce. Very few produced (just 53 worldwide). Each one of these highly exclusive writing instruents was made by a master craftsman using the finest materials and applying the utmost precision. As a sign of its uniqueness each pen in this exclusive edition bears an engraved limitation number. The example here offered for sale comes in mint, unused, full set condition. The limitation number – for privacy reasons – will be revealed to the concerned Buyer only.
