“I did not write half of what I saw, for I knew I would not be belived” 

Marco Polo
Ident: 115423
Launch: Oct 2016 (Montblanc Gala event in Tokyo)
Material: Au 750 Champagne gold, Damask steel, wood, lapislazuli (central stone 6.62 Ct)

With the 2016 High Artristry Homage to Marco Polo LE 69 Montblanc hit the target with a spectacular model that combines many suggestions from the recent Aritisan production (the long/extended cap we already saw in the Picasso 91 and Picasso 39, the wind rose we find on the inner packaging of Gustave Eiffel 91) and an equal amount of very innovative solutions (first of all the Damask steel cap and secondly the use of wood for the barrel). This very appealing edition falls between the Cristobal Colon 92 and the Skeleton Genghis Khan 88 as logical development of the travel theme.

·     Cap set with Mother-of-Pearl Montblanc emblem
·     Cap made in damask steel
·     Barrel made of wood, which is inspired by the traditional rose furniture from China
