Montblanc Singapore - An Icon of A True Art Form

With a long line of history, Montblanc has been providing the best luxury pens for celebrities, politicians and for many pen collectors around the world. It is a sought after brand, fueled with a thirst to provide quality, finesse and ingenuity to its customers. This is the reason why Montblanc pens are very much in demand in Singapore and across the globe.

Montblanc’s History as A Pen Maker

From its origins in a town called Hamburg, Germany, Mont Blanc is a German manufacturer of fine writing tools that is famous for its smooth lines, detail-oriented, and German quality. Originally named as Simplo Filler Pen Co by the three founders, Claus-Johannes Vous, Alfred Nehemias and August Eberstein, the company began its history as a producer of fountain pens with built-in inkwells. Later, the company adopted the name “Mont Blanc”, inspired by the highest mountain in the Alps.

From its humble beginnings in Germany, Montblanc pens have reached a great deal of height in terms of sales and popularity in pen making. Today, Montblanc is a global manufacturer of other products such as men’s jewellery, watches, fragrances, leather goods and accessories and is now a part of the Richemont Group, which has prestigious brands such as Cartier and Piaget under its belt.

With its immaculate quality, timeless design, and classic craftsmanship in its products, Mont Blanc continues to hold its status as a luxury brand and is well-sought-after by many collectors from Singapore and around the world.

Meisterstuck - The Iconic Montblanc Pen

Montblanc’s signature pen, the Montblanc Meisterstuck pen has a distinctive legacy. Originated in Hamburg, the name of the pen is known as a masterpiece when translated into English and it is one of the company’s trademark products, proudly representing Mont Blanc’s longing desire for perfection. Since its creation, the pen has been used, loved and trusted for decades by some of the world’s most prominent figures, from scholars and scientists to authors and artists.

Until today, the trademark pen is still manufactured at the original factory that produces the pen decades ago. The original design and the method of manufacture have been maintained over the years, and very little had been altered from its origins. Every nib is carefully handmade by master craftsmen in 35 stages before 70 additional processes are performed to assemble and test the pen. While certain materials may have been changed, a Meisterstuck pen today looks very much the same as it did in 1924 and it is one of the characteristics that keep customers coming back from time to time.
