Harley Davidson, Disney, and Tornadoes. What do all three have in common? They’re all Retro 51 pen collections, of course. Established in 1991, Retro 51 is redefining the way we think about pens. The company makes affordable, unique and original pieces that anyone would want. From Tinkerbell and Mickey Mouse to Full Throttles and Road Writers, Retro 51 has a pen for you, especially with the addition of new pieces to the already popular collections.
In continuation of the distinctive Harley Davidson collection, Retro 51 released the Flathead line. This includes three new pens designed around Harley’s Flathead engine. Like the flathead engine, the pens are powerful in their simplicity.
Along with the new line of Harleys, Retro 51 also added the Abbondonza pens. This collection was named for the Italian word meaning, “more of everything,” which pretty accurately describe these pens. They are made from acrylic resin to ensure their beauty and long life.
As if the Harleys and Abbondonzas weren’t enough, the company also updated some classics. The Scriptmaster is now available in the second series, and the Tornado Rollerballs now come in five new colors including ice blue, Venetian marble, purple, charcoalium and Verona marble.
One thing remains constant with these pens; they are unlike any designs I’ve ever seen. Check them out at Executive Essentials.
They already have Van Gogh, so why not add another monumentally important painter such as Rembrandt to the brand’s pen collections. While the Van Gogh pens mimic the deep color schemes and style of his impressionist paintings, the Rembrandt pens take a different approach. The pens are modeled after a technique of Rembrandt’s involving using the contrast of light to create volume and drama. Those, indeed, would be the two words I would use to describe the Rembrandt Collection.
I would expect nothing less than this impeccable attention to detail and new design from the brand. Visconti is known worldwide for being creative and technological innovators, and that is epitomized with the Rembrandt Collection.
The 12 new pens in the series offer a vast array of colors and styles ranging from deep blue fountain pens to ivory-white rollerballs. All pens in the collection are accented with a palladium finish, a newly designed indestructible clip, and a finely and beautifully engraved metal cap ring around the center of the barrel.
Another brand that similarly combines new technology with flawless style is S.T. Dupont and the new Carbon Fibre pens are a testimony of that. These pens offer a smooth and unparalleled writing experience because of the lightweight technology used to construct the pens’ refills.
Whether you’re looking for a gift for an art collector, or a pen enthusiast, I would definitely recommend one of the Visconti or S.T. Dupont pieces. See for yourself at Executive Essentials!
Yes, you read that title correctly. Diamonds.
No, I don’t mean the pens have a shiny gloss finish or some sort of crystal design. I don’t mean there is a diamond designed painted on. I mean straight from the ground, carbon rock, beautiful brilliant diamonds.
Montblanc released two pens as part of the already exquisite Meisterstuck LeGrand Collection: one ballpoint and one fountain pen. The fountain pen is equipped with a 14 K gold nib rhodium-plated inlay, precious black resin barrel and cap, and platinum plated clip and rings. As if that weren’t enough, the real catch with this one is the .06 ct. diamond in the cap top of the pen. It looks like it’s suspended in midair. I mean, it doesn’t get much cooler, sleeker or original than that. The ballpoint shares the same remarkable and distinguishing diamond as well as all of the other features as the fountain pen.
If there were ever a pen to invest in, this is it. Every part of this pen was thoughtfully designed and executed, and you are sure to make a statement with it. The floating diamond will mesmerize any eye as you write, and act as the perfect complement to your desk.
I wouldn’t wait too long to order mine!

Strong. Defined. Powerful. Innovative. These words describe the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, and what’s more impressive is that they also apply to Montblanc’s new pen dedicated to her throne.
Montblanc released two limited edition fountain pens that capture the essence of 16th century England. Thanks to Queen Elizabeth I, England was a world super power that created the foundation for a historic age of culture. Montblanc recognizes this epic era with its pens.
The brilliant lacquer of both writing instruments is modeled on the royal garments of the Queen. The royal insignia is well represented on the cap by the Tudor rose and the cross of the British Crown, along with a green cabochon on the clip. To finish off the adorned cap, the words “Video et taceo” meaning “I see and say nothing” are engraved as a reminder of the famous Queen’s signature motto.
The Queen Elizabeth I fountain pens come in two editions; one is limited to 4810 pieces while the other has only 888. If you are a fan of British History, this pen is the perfect collection piece. This pen is also a worthy addition to any desk or collection and is sure to spark conversation.

Car enthusiasts, get ready. Cross released a new collection, the C-Series, modeled after sports cars. The collection features fountain and rollerball pens in your choice of blue, champagne and black, with the black coming in two finishes.
The body of the pen is inspired by sports cars while the appointments are designed to reflect lug nuts. The fountain pens are equipped with a twist off cap and a rubberized grip section for optimal comfort. To top it all off, the pen is finished with an 18 karat gold nib with rhodium plating.
The rollerballs use a twist to engage the pen, and the capless design makes for a high tech look. As with the fountain pen, the body brings to mind a sports car, and the appointments scream lug nuts. The pen takes either gel ink or jumbo ballpoint refills, and both are included with your purchase.
I know you’ve been eying that new Audi A5 and that Infiniti G37, but who has the money for them these days? The new Cross C-Series is a great alternative, and the price won’t give you that pit in your stomach…or wallet.
