The Pen That Runs In The Family – Let me first start by saying that you should not go into this store unless you are prepared to drop some serious cash. Montblanc is without question one of the most renowned luxury boutiques. Upon entry anyone could take a quick glance around the sales floor and get the primary message, MAJOR CREDIT CARDS ONLY! There is nothing but class in this boutique and of course there is a price for it. However said that you can’t buy class has never seen the inventory at the Madison Avenue location. The Starwalker, a collectors’ pen with platinum cover was purchased for what I would consider a much deserved graduation gift wrapped up for $497.00+tax. To be honest that was probably among the less expensive items in this boutique. This pen is of the caliber that an employer would give to you after closing a major deal or securing an executive promotion. Until that time comes I will be using it to sign checks, bills, and other documents. If you’re in the store long enough you will find that Montblanc has more to offer besides its great pen collection, the staff is extremely helpful with assisting client purchase in fine watches, briefcases, jewelry, cuff links, one of a kind diamonds, belts, and accessories galore! Though a standard purchase here may break your pockets a bit, their items are made to last and make great air looms. One day I hope to pass down my pen to one of my children when they graduate college.
The pen that should come with a LoJack. – The Background
Nearly a hundred years ago, Mont Blanc cashed in on the "art of writing," creating its signature fountain pen and marketing it as an instant status symbol. Since then, the company's worldwide boutiques have expanded from opulent pens into other luxury items. For such elite goods, the service is generally unsnobby.
"These products contain more than beauty--they have a soul," states the company. And at these prices, they should (they should wash windows, fold laundry and turn out a perfect creme brulee, too). For those who love labels, Mont Blanc is the It pen. And if you've already got the pen (including the diamond-encrusted goody from the Royal collection), indulge yourself in the gem-laden jewelry, platinum-buckle belts, leather attaches, sport watches, steel cufflinks, flashy sunglasses and fragrances, too.
