In 2011 Montblanc celebrated the engineering genius of a Frenchman who designed the Eiffel Tower.
The “Iron Magician,” was the master of reducing the effect of the wind to a minimum. His hand touched many places around the world – the railway bridges, the West train station in Budapest, the iron interior of the Statue of Liberty in New York, and the dome of Nice observatory. His name became forever memorialized for the general public by the Paris iconic landmark, the Eiffel Tower.
The pen to honor the master shows off the skeleton net representing typical Eiffel’s construction work. The engravings of the cone are inspired by Eiffel Tour patterns. The Montblanc Gustave Eiffel features a skeletonized body in 750 18k “grey” gold, the metal parts are reminiscent of Eiffel’s many structures focusing mainly on the Eiffel Tower. The Montblanc Gustave Eiffel is covered in rivets, such as those used to fix beams of iron. The Montblanc emblem is seen on the top of the cap in beautiful mother of pearl. The clip symbolizes a circle, one of Eiffel’s most important working tools.The cap top reminds us of the Observatory of Nice. The Montblanc emblem is seen on the top of the cap in beautiful mother of pearl. The nib of the pen is adorned with the wind rose, representing the wind theme in the influences on Eiffel’s work.
