Montblanc has released the High Artistry Homage to Johannes Kepler Limited Edition, a new pen collection inspired by the German mathematician and astronomer Johannes Kepler. A highlight of the range is the Johannes Kepler High Artistry Stella Nova Limited Edition 1, an exceptional pen worth €1.4 million (RM 6.59 million). The top of the pen highlights some interesting precious stones — like rubies and diamonds as they are designed to resemble the Milky Way.
Another noteworthy item is the Homage to Johannes Kepler High Pede Serpentari Limited Edition 39, which is inspired by Kepler’s book De Stella Nova in Pede Serpentarii. The AU750 white gold of the cap, cone and fittings stand out against the dark blue enamel top, and its barrel is set with shining jewels. The clip’s designed is an inspiration by Kepler’s drafting compass, and is complemented by a princess-cut blue sapphire. In addition to that, the pen’s rhodium-covered Au750 gold nib is set with a blue sapphire, and a fascinating shade of opal brightens the top crown.
The constellation design on the pen is punctuated by shimmering white diamonds, which is call to mind the brilliant stars in the sky, and other coloured gemstones — which symbolises the planets. Its top is crafted with pave diamonds, which are arranged to represent the three laws of planetary movements.
The Homage to Johannes Kepler High Artistry Somnium Limited Edition 5 is lined with several sapphires deliberately picked for their colour. This edition is equipped with a programmed watch based on Kepler’s drawings of the stages of the moon. Montblanc unfolded the special moon phases of the pen’s cap made in Villeret in the Swiss Jura. The compass and the nib of the pen are mounted with a red ruby stone.
To the exceptional pen, that is set with a diamond stone on its nib and compass — the 6.20- carat jewel beautifies the top — Introducing the Johannes Kepler High Artistry Stella Nova Limited Edition 1 is obtainable with a porcelain pen created and inspired by Prozellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg, in collaboration with Montblanc. The pen is complemented by cufflinks in regards of the planetary system.
Each of the four plans in the High Artistry Homage to Johannes Kepler Limited Edition collection will be available for purchase — only at select Montblanc boutiques.
