MONTBLANC SIGNS AND SYMBOLS LEGEND OF ZODIACS ROOSTER LIMITED EDITION 512
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.
