The Montblanc Antoine Saint-Exupery is a beautifully detailed writing instrument. Every year Montblanc release a Writers Edition and in 2017 this was the pen of choice. The design and shape of the pen is inspired by the iconic Caudron Simoun plane and his famous novel “Night Flight”. The engravings on the barrel and cap show the sky as seen by Saint-Exupéry on the 1st of November 1929 at 23:00. As the director of the newly formed company Aeroposta Argentina S.A, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry conducted Aeroposta’s inaugural flight on 1 November 1929, flying from an airfield at Villa Harding Green to Comodoro Rivadavia. The fittings are inspired by the cockpit of his plane. The geographic positions of important cities in Saint-Exupéry’s life are engraved on the cone.
