Description:
Montblanc's tribute to Scotsman James Watt, whose engineering innovations powered the Industrial Revolution. The skeletonized 18K gold barrel and cap, with oversized flywheel motif, reflect the "parallel motion" linkage system of Watt's revolutionary steam engine. The clip recalls Watt's double-weighted centrifugal governor. The joints of the supports connecting the 18K gold flywheels are decorated with diamonds, and a domed mother-of-pearl Montblanc star surmounts the cap. The skeletonized body of the pen affords a glimpse of the 18K gold piston-filling mechanism within. Two versions of this pen were released: a limited edition of 83 and this deluxe limited edition of 35.
 
Medium 18K gold nib engraved with a draft horse, symbol of horsepower. Illustrated outer box, lacquered wood display box, hardbound folder with booklet, certificate and service guide. Limited Edition: 14/35. Excellent condition, not inked.

Limitation numbers on pen and certificate match; certificate duly signed by Montblanc Atelier artisan and marked with diamond color, cut, carat and clarity information.
