Condition and information:
Rarely found in such condition, the set offered here is a NOS, new never used as it was sold decades ago. In its original combination consisting of the No.24 fountain pen and the No.28 ballpoint pen, in their original presentation box. The No.24 pen is the big brother of the famous model No.22, the 24 model. The 24 model is the largest pen of all two digits Montblanc pens of the 60s. These include the model numbers 12, 14, 22, 24, 32, 34 and their rolled and solid gold versions 72, 74, 82, 84, 92 and 94 which were launched in the 1960s to replace the older 3xx and 2xx series from the 1950s. These new era pens were completely new approach by Montblanc, both technologically with new materials and complete mechanical redesign, but also a new bold modern space-era inspired design. These pens represents the start of the era that defined the modern pen form factors. The fountain pen is a very complex build, one of the most complex Montblanc pens ever made, consisting of more than 20 separate parts. This pen is second to none in craftsmanship, reliability, design, everything a pen should represent. Some of these models even bore the "Masterpiece" insignia such as the number 12 and 14 which are based entirely on this pen and are made out of the same materials and same level of craftsmanship. The considerable size provides for a great feel in the hand with superb balance, regardless if the pen is posted or not.
The nib is a true Montblanc masterpiece, EF super sharp nib perfect for precise writing, perfect for small letters where precision is needed, producing very clean lines, not too wet, but also very smooth nib, non-scratchy gliding on the paper. On top of that the nib is also flexible. It will easily widen its tines with the slightest push, and it will write all bigger sizes up to double broad. Original ebonite feed with great steady and constant ink-flow, no skipping. The piston is super smooth, takes up a great amount of ink which will last for quite a while.The pen features a slip on/off cap for faster deployment. The cap is perfect fit, very precise "click" sound when opening or closing the pen, typical Montblanc/German precision. The cap features a two rings anti-crack system, found only on high-end Montblanc pens. Beautiful see through crisp blue ink window. Conveniently, the pen can be easily disassembled in its entirety. The front section is easily unscrewable. This will allow easy access to the piston shaft and the entire nib assembly, thus very easy to clean and maintain, rarely found on such superbly engineered piston fountain pens.
The ballpoint pen features the famous lever mechanism. This Montblanc patented mechanism, also known as the "11th finger mechanism", is a special design feature where a lever is located under the clip, thus when the pen is placed/hanged into a pocket the pocket fabric passing under the clip will push the lever up and turn the pen off. This is a very convenient feature which makes sure the hanged pen will always turn itself off, thus prevent incidental line marks on the jacket fabric (especially good feature for people in white coats). The mechanism is a joy to use, very easy, pushing the lever down will turn the pen on; pushing it up or hanging it into the pocket will turn it off. It is very precise mechanism easy and fast to deploy with a very nice distinct clicking sound. The original Montblanc giant refill is included and its fully operational, since the pen hasn't been used, its likely it will write for some time.
Both pens are super shiny made out of precious black resin, the signature Montblanc material, which has super high shine, gloss, but also a scratch protection and durability. All metal parts are thick gold plated, so gold wear-off is very unlikely. The Montblanc star is located on the top of the cap and tuning knob and top of the ballpoint. The set comes in NOS - new old stock - never used condition, as best as they come, simply a time capsule Masterpiece Montblanc pens almost impossible to find in such pristine condition.
The Montblanc ad on the last picture probably says it best:
"MONTBLANC is one of the finest pens you can give or own. Regardless of price, the MONTBLANC possesses an air of elegance, of classic beauty, of impeccable good taste. Long known as Europe's leading fountain pen, the MONTBLANC has superb craftsmanship ... unbelievably smooth writing action ... perfect balance. Its point is 14 or 18 karat gold. Its giant ink capacity is due to an ingenious filling system. It is proclaimed by many pen experts here and abroad to be the finest fountain pen ever designed. Aeromatic-ink control permits safe use while flying. You will treasure it as a personal possession of value and distinction, something you will be proud to own and use."
