This July marks fifty years since Neil Armstrong’s famous words changed the way we see the world.
In commemoration, Montegrappa announces the release of the Moon Landing LE – a writing instrument that defies convention, with the form and function of which boyhood dreams are made.
Developed in close coordination with NASA, sleek aerodynamics, gleaming pearlized resin, and sterling silver trims provide the Moon Landing LE’s most visible space-age references, but the newest addition to Montegrappa’s Cult Series arrives packed with onboard surprises.
Turn the rocket-thruster blind cap clockwise to simulate the Saturn V’s second and third stage separation. Reverse direction to view the fountain pen’s piston-fill mechanism through a special 360º viewing window. Presented in a special lunar landing site diorama, the ultimate tribute to the 20thcentury’s crowning technological achievement can be yours to hold and behold.
Measuring 363 feet (110m), Apollo’s Saturn V rocket was powered by engines delivering 160 million horsepower.
The Moon Landing LE is realized with exacting precision in strictly limited quantities. 363 fountain pens in fine, medium and broad grades join 110 rollerballs realized in hand-enameled resin and sterling silver. A stratospheric variant in titanium and 18k gold is available in fountain pen and rollerball modes.
