- Montblanc extends its StarWalker collection with new writing instruments inspired by the spirit of racing
Switching gears, applying gas and speeding over the finish line to take the crown. With contemporary elegance and masculine energy, Montblanc brings the spirit of racing to Starwalker, a writing instrument collection synonymous with cutting-edge design and the use of innovative materials. With design cues inspired by automotive performance, the StarWalker Spirit of Racing Doué evokes the innovation and speed of motor racing. The racing theme of the new StarWalker lineup follows in the footsteps of the new Montblanc TimeWalker, a watch that celebrates the glory days of racing with superb technology and vintage style.
The fountain pen, fineliner and ballpoint pen that make up the Spirit of Racing StarWalker collection add a sporty edge to the signature Montblanc StarWalker writing instrument. The precious resin barrel features a moulded tire-like pattern. The product of the finest craftsmanship, the special moulding process creates a rubber-like look that delivers a new optical experience. Shiny polished platinum surfaces evoking the finishes of a magnificent car contrast with the textured moulded tire-like pattern in black . A knurling pattern used on the gearshift, pedals, and steering wheel of racing cars is featured on the forepart of the fountain pen and the fineliner, offering a better grip to its owner and enhancing the writing experience. The same knurling pattern adorns the crown of the TimeWalker watch evoking the thrill and performance of motor racing.
The platinum-plated cone and fittings give the writing instrument its sleek appearance reminiscent of the polished chrome surfaces of an elegant racing machine. This elegant finish is carried through on the 14K rhodium-coated gold nib of the fountain pen features. The cone of both the fountain pen and the fineliner is decorated with PVD coated anthracite strips. Crowning the cap, the Montblanc emblem floats suspended inside a translucent cap top, a signature feature of the Starwalker collection.
From start to finish, the StarWalker Spirit of Racing Doué brings the exhilaration of motor racing and the aesthetics of automotive excellence to the Montblanc writing experience.
The StarWalker Spirit of Racing Doué is available from June 2017 at Montblanc boutiques worldwide. For more information, visit www.montblanc.com
