The High Artistry Homage to Han­ni­bal Barca Lim­ited Edi­tion by Mont Blanc

Business Traveller (India) - - CONTENTS -

Mont­blanc has in­tro­duced the new High Artistry Homage to Han­ni­bal Barca Lim­ited Edi­tion, as a trib­ute to Han­ni­bal Barca, who was a Pu­nic mil­i­tary com­man­der from Carthage. He is con­sid­ered to be one of the great­est mil­i­tary com­man­ders of his­tory along­side Julius Cae­sar and Alexan­der the Great. The de­sign of this spe­cial edi­tion is in­spired by sig­nif­i­cant events of the sec­ond Pu­nic war — when Han­ni­bal made his iconic cross­ing of the Alps in 218 BC along with his ele­phants. A cap top in the shape of an ele­phant with a clip shaped like the an­i­mal’s trunk em­bel­lishes this col­lec­tion. Han­ni­bal Barca Lim­ited Edi­tion 1 is lim­ited to just one piece and fea­tures a strik­ing com­bi­na­tion of white gold, di­a­monds and sap­phires. High Artistry Homage to Han­ni­bal Barca Lim­ited Edi­tion 5 is lim­ited to only five pieces and dis­plays an en­graved and pol­ished 3D model of the Mont Blanc mas­sif in rough rock crys­tal, as a ref­er­ence to Han­ni­bal’s cross­ing of the Alps. This is the first time that the Mont­blanc em­blem that crowns the foun­tain pen has been re­placed. The High Artistry Homage to Han­ni­bal Barca Lim­ited Edi­tion 10 and the High Artistry Homage to Han­ni­bal Barca Lim­ited Edi­tion 86 are also a part of this col­lec­tion. In the for­mer, an an­thracite ti­ta­nium un­der­lay has been paired with a solid white gold un­coated over­lay, cre­at­ing a con­trast with the two fin­ishes. The lat­ter is a ref­er­ence to the 86,000 men who crossed the Alps with Han­ni­bal. The cap of this piece is made of wood that’s em­bel­lished with a pat­tern that re­calls the pan­ther skin Han­ni­bal and his gen­er­als wore to pro­tect their left arm and shoul­der. mont­blanc.com
