A Brief History of Montblanc
The Creation of Montblanc
The creation of Montblanc began in 1906 with a Hamburg banker, Alfred Nehemias, and a Berlin engineer who realised that it was time to design simplicissimus pens. It wasn't long until Wilhelm Dziambor, Christian Lausen and Claus Johannes Voss carried on the business, preparing the foundation that would be the internationally successful business 'Montblanc'.
Montblanc, a Registered Trademark
In 1910 Montblanc was registered as a trademark featuring the evolutionary fountain pen, but it wasn't until 1913 that the star was born (the famous Montblanc emblem). The white star representing the snow white peak of the highest European mountain, would now be presented on the top of every pen that the 'Simplo Filler Pen Co' would make. (The partners business name before Montblanc, created in 1908.) The Montblanc star represents the brand's commitment to the highest quality and most talented craftsmanship.
Launch of the Meisterstück (Masterpiece) Pen
The fountain pen which made history, the Montblanc Meisterstück was launched in 1924. With the 'Meisterstück' timeless design it soon became the most widely celebrated pen of all time; the ultimate symbol for writing and culture.
The Star 4810 Fountain Pen Nib
The intricate design including the numbers '4810' that we can see on the Montblanc Meisterstück fountain pen nibs today, was first engraved on the nib in 1929. This important inscription represents the height of the Mont Blanc mountain.
The Meisterstück 149 Launch
The legendary Meisterstück 149 was launched in 1952. This writing instrument not only became the most celebrated pen of all time, but also became the ultimate symbol for the arts and a style icon for perfect timeless design.
John F. Kennedy lends his Writing Instrument
When Konrad Adenauer was without a pen at an important event in 1963, John F. Kennedy offered the use of his Montblanc 149 fountain pen.
The Art of Writing and the Meisterstück Solitaire Collection
A lot happened in 1986 for Montblanc:
Montblanc began 'The Art of Writing' campaign. This was a model for a lot of brands in the luxury business.
The Meisterstück Solitaire Collection design, which is essentially a metal version of the Meisterstück was released.
Montblanc created a number of a sponsorship and initiatives in the fields of literature, ballet and music, marking the beginning of Montblanc's world wide commitment to the art and culture.
Montblanc Opened First Boutique
Now with over 350 boutiques in more than 70 countries internationality. The first Montblanc boutique was actually opened in Hong Kong in 1990, and then spread to Europe beginning in Paris and London.
The Richemont Group
The VendÃ´m Luxury Group S.A. Bought a major stake of Montblanc in the eighties combining all good luxury companies including dunhill, Cartier and many more. Later on the business would become the 'Richemont Group', who are now the second largest luxury group in the world.
The Montblanc Meisterstück Leather Collection
With continual success Montblanc expanded it's selection of goods to include leather. More specifically, the Meisterstück leather collection. Providing exclusive, spacious, business and travel products for everyday use.
Montblanc add Jewellery to their Portfolio
In 1996 Montblanc took their first step into the world of jewellery. In particular, men's jewellery completing the Meisterstück collection. It wasn't until 2005 where Montblanc stepped into the world of ladies' jewellery with three innovative collections.
Montblanc's first donation pen was also introduced in this year, featuring Leonard Bernstein alongside outstanding personalities from the world of classical music.
Montblanc Meisterstück 75th Year Celebrations
Montblanc celebrated the Meisterstück collection for '75 years of passion and soul'. The 'Solitaire Royal' with 4,810 diamonds made the Guinness Book of Records for the being the most expensive pen in the world!
The Montblanc StarWalker Collection
In 2003, the next generation of writing instruments was presented for the younger enthusiasts for pure and aesthetic design.
In Cooperation with Unicef
Montblanc and Unicef asked 149 celebrities including Bianca Jagger, Nadja Auermann and Luciano Pavarotti to write a brief statement with a Montblanc Meisterstück 149 fountain pen, beginning 'I like to write because...'. The celebrity signatures were engraved onto the pens and then they were auctioned off with all the proceeds going directly to charity.
Later on in 2009, the 'Unicef signature for Good' range of products were created to help raise funds for Unicef. Montblanc donated 10% of the profits guaranteeing a minimum of $1.5 million worldwide.
Soul Makers for 100 Years
In 2006 Montblanc were the first brand to patent their own diamond cut, derived from its star logo. This took more than eight years of research to develop this, helping to celebrate the businesses 100th anniversary. Soon after the business added a new star among the crown jewels, Montblanc entered the world of diamond jewellery based on this brand new star diamond.
The First Montblanc Collection featuring 'Princess Grace de Monaco'
Montblanc created their first collection which included fine jewellery, time pieces, and writing instruments, to honour a remarkable individual Grace Kelly. Her her talent as a Oscar winning actress and her commitment to helping others, she inspired an entire generation.
