Description:
Ultra-limited version of Montegrappa's most successful design. The original Dragon pen was released in 1995 in two versions: sterling silver and 18K gold. Both versions were immensely popular and quickly sold out. Ten years later, Montegrappa chose to honor this iconic pen by creating two special limited edition "Restyle" versions, one in 18K yellow gold with white diamonds and one in 18K rose gold with black diamonds. Both of these editions were limited to ten examples. Like their predecessors, the Restyle editions quickly vanished into private collections, and have since become almost unobtainable at any price. These exceptional instruments are not only Montegrappa's greatest achievements in pen design, but they are among the most illustrious luxury pens ever made.
