Montblanc continues to captivate enthusiasts with its latest limited-edition writing instruments that also pay tribute to the Year of the Dragon. The Signs & Symbols collector line introduces “The Legend of Zodiacs” and “A Journey among Dragons” collections, paying homage to the mythical and awe-inspiring creatures deeply embedded in East Asian culture.
The Legend of Zodiacs: The Dragon Edition 512
In the spotlight is the dragon, the fifth animal in the Chinese zodiac, revered as the ancestor of the Chinese people. Montblanc’s dedication to this majestic creature is evident in the meticulous craftsmanship of The Legend of Zodiacs The Dragon Limited Edition 512. The Ag 925 sterling silver cap is adorned with a hand-engraved dragon, symbolizing power, ambition, and imperial authority.
Every detail in the engraving carries profound symbolism – its climbing body represents ambition, the pearl for success, and auspicious clouds for happiness and good fortune. The barrel features an ornamental engraving inspired by the Chinese symbol for wealth, and the cone is set with an amethyst, the birthstone of the dragon sign.
To add an extra layer of fortune, the cap ring is engraved with the upcoming year of the dragon, 2024, as well as the six previous dragon years. The special limitation number, 512, is a celebration of the auspicious number 8, known for its association with luck and prosperity.
A Journey among Dragons: The Hovering Dragon Editions
Montblanc delves deeper into East Asian mythology with the A Journey among Dragons collection, featuring The Hovering Dragon Limited Edition 88 and Limited Edition 8. The Hovering Dragon, an ancient Chinese mythological creature, is a symbol of luck, wealth, wisdom, and peace.
The Limited Edition 88 showcases a dragon with intense blue sapphire eyes, hand-engraved on an Ag 925 sterling silver cap. Its body encircles the writing instrument beneath white and light blue lacquer, adorned with brilliant cut diamonds. The color gradient represents the celestial spheres where the Hovering Dragon reigns, with fittings made of solid Au 750 signature gold and a blue iolite set in the cone.
The Limited Edition 8 elevates the artistry with a hand-engraved dragon on solid Au 750 white gold cap and barrel embellished with black, grey, and blue sapphires. The dragon’s eyes sparkle with blue sapphires, and the nib features an embossing of auspicious waves. This rare edition is a testament to Montblanc’s Artisan Atelier’s mastery.
Montblanc’s commitment to celebrating East Asian culture extends beyond writing instruments. The collection includes stationery and accessories inspired by the dragon – a leather Notebook with a red dragon drawing, an Ink capturing the dragon’s spirit in red, and Cufflinks crafted of Ag 925 sterling silver in the recognizable shape of the dragon.
Montblanc’s Signs & Symbols The Legend of Zodiacs and A Journey among Dragons collections for the Year of the Dragon exemplify the brand’s dedication to artistry and cultural richness. These limited editions not only pay tribute to ancient legends but also embody the essence of luck, prosperity, and wisdom associated with the dragon in East Asian mythology. As these exquisite pieces become available in Montblanc boutiques from September 2023, they promise to be cherished as precious charms and symbols of elegance for years to come.
