President Barack Obama and the Montblanc Meisterstück pen

US President Barack Obama visited Berlin last month. The visit is President Obama's first to the German capital in the four and a half years since he became president. The President made an entry in the guestbook of Schloss Bellevue, with an unmistakable Montblanc Meisterstück pen with the classic white star emblem. With the advance in technology, it is nice to see guestbooks being signed in classic stationery. It can be framed and kept for future generation's keepsake. The impact just would not be the same, if say the President signed in via Foursquare? Odd for someone dabbling in social media to say that, but certain things and actions make more sentimental value with pen and paper.

With #WishlistWednesday, I long for the classic Montblanc Meisterstück fountain pen with a handcrafted 14k gold nib. You know classics never go out of style, and if it is good enough for the President... It was also rumoured that Catherine (Kate Middleton), Duchess of Cambridge, bought a classic Montblanc pen for Prince William's 31st birthday. Now now!

You can shop the Montblanc Meisterstück fountain pen online here.
