Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Montblanc Meisterstück 162 LeGrands 75th Anniversary Special Edition Rollerball Pen, which comes with an izods presentation box. The pen has just returned from being serviced by Montblanc in Hamburg (the paperwork will be supplied by the purchaser), where the barrel was also replaced. The remainder of the pen is presented in overall lovely condition.
The 75th anniversary writing instruments were released in 1999 to commemorate 75 years of the Meisterstuck range (launched in 1924). There were two main editions available, one being the unlimited yellow gold ‘special edition’ pens and then the rose gold ‘limited edition’ pens, of which only 1924 examples were produced. This is the yellow gold special edition.
To distinguish these anniversary editions from the usual offerings, you’ll find a second gold band around the top of the clip, in which is mounted a diamond and the inscription ’75 years of passion and soul’ – with the diamond being the ‘o’ in passion.
The pen is fitted with a new rollerball refill. If you’d rather use it as a fineliner, then you’d simply have to purchase the relevant refill – these are widely available online.
The important details are as follows…
Germany and serial number markings present
izods Presentation Box
With every writing instrument that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
