Spider Metamorphosis a new Legendary Montblanc design

01 Jul, 2018

The Montblanc Heritage Collection Rouge & Noir reimagines one of the first product lines created by the founders of Montblanc in 1909.  The legendary line is reinterpreted in both form and function with a new size and shape, and enhanced writing features for a more luxurious writing experience, including the addition of modern piston technology.

A popular theme in literature as early as the metamorphosis of Arachne as told by Ovid in his Metamorphoses, the fascinating arachnid features prominently throughout the collection. The cap of the Montblanc Heritage Rouge & Noir Spider Metamorphosis Special Edition is crafted from lacquer, while the barrel is made of highly polished precious resin. A traditional off-white snowcap embedded in coral red precious resin crowns the writing instrument. The patina-finished fittings give the edition a distinctively vintage look. The spider weaves its intricate web around the top of the writing instrument from which descends the pen’s elegant clip. The motif of the creature is engraved on the rhodium-plated Au585 gold nib evoking Montblanc’s mission to constantly rethink and transform the art of writing since 1906. Made from vivid coral resin and lacquer evoking a colour reminiscent of the era, the Montblanc Heritage Rouge & Noir Spider.
