Manufactured in Hamburg since 1924, the Meisterstück fountain pen embodies Montblanc’s quest for perfection. In the last 90 years the Meisterstück has become an icon of writing culture and a symbol of Montblanc’s values: finest craftsmanship, traditional manufacturing techniques, precious materials and best functionality.
To celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Meisterstück, Montblanc will be introducing a series of limited edition writing instruments, leather goods, time pieces and jewellery. For writing instruments, the Meisterstück 90 Years Collection consists of a small series of fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints. Each writing instrument is crafted in precious black resin, adorned with red gold-plated fittings and offered in a special packaging box with 1924 replica sleeve. All fountain pens feature a special "90 Years" nib design. You can find out more about the Montblanc Meisterstück 90 Years Collection online at Montblanc.com.￼

It rises 4810m above sea level. That, along with 90 other interesting facts about the Montblanc fountain pen, can be found on their Twitter account.
To celebrate the 90 years of the Meisterstück collection, Montblanc asked me to put pen to paper. In this digital age, it is really back to basics. I had flashbacks of my mum telling me to hold my pen properly. I wanted to pen something meaningful, a short quote to be locked into an imaginary time capsule, or to be hidden away between the pages of a book which will lay undiscovered for years. It really is a struggle, I can compose a tweet in 149 characters or less easily, but to put pen to paper? That slowed things down for me, and it formed the essence of what I wanted to pen. I made some small changes to my life lately, a conscious effort to slow down my pace. I do not know if that is the right decision or not, but I feel healthier and happier. I feel I am in a much better place, physically and mentally. So, this is a short quote I would like to share:
