MONT­BLANC SIGNS AND SYM­BOLS LE­GEND OF ZO­DI­ACS ROOSTER LIM­ITED EDI­TION 512

Revolution (Hong Kong) - - WATCH CULTURE -

While Mont­blanc has ac­cess to two very ca­pa­ble watch man­u­fac­tures, its his­tory lies in writ­ing in­stru­ments, and just to change a bit from time­pieces, we’d like to fo­cus on the pen that is has crafted for the Year of the Rooster. It’s also a con­tin­u­a­tion in a se­ries, with each tak­ing par­tic­u­lar in­spi­ra­tion from the an­i­mal it rep­re­sents. Ac­cord­ing to Mont­blanc, the black used in the bar­rel is the “king of col­ors” in An­cient East Asian cul­ture. Along with the hand-en­graved rooster, the birth years for the Year of the Rooster – hope­fully you don’t fall just out­side the lu­nar dates – are en­graved on the cap, with a cit­rine set, the rooster’s birth­stone, set in the cap. And if you think there’s, un­usu­ally, nary a num­ber 8, fa­vored for many Asian edi­tions, 512 is, in fact 8x8x8.
