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!
I didn’t always understand the demand for nice pens. Throughout my entire school career, I used whatever I bought at Walgreens or office depot, and they worked just fine. It wasn’t until I started seeing these other types of pens that it hit me. Pens can truly be beautiful accessories to any desk, and there is a monumental difference between the Walgreens Bic and a Waterman or Waterford fine writing instrument.
Waterman and Waterford Pens have elegantly and intricately designed pens, and they are now on sale at Executive Essentials. If there was ever a time to invest in this type of product, it’s now. Whether you need a gift for Father’s Day, a graduation present, or just think it’s time to add some class to your desk, Waterman and Waterford have the pens and prices for you.
Just to highlight a few, the Waterford Rainbow Arista Prism Rollerball Pen is a good pick. Its contemporary colors and shape come in your choice of multicolored mocha or rainbow, and marbled caramel or purple. Polished chrome appointments accompany each pen to make them stand out from any other design.
Another good choice would be the Waterman Expert II Ballpoint Pen in Dune Blue. The vibrant gold trims, deep blue lacquer, and mesmerizing reflective effect ensure a distinct elegance and originality.
Of course, you should browse the selection for yourself because there are more than 20 designs on sale. With colors ranging from fire engine red to deep sea blue, there is sure to be a pen for you.
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!
Ingrid Bergman, one of Hollywood’s finest, with three Academy Awards, two Emmy Awards, and a Tony Award, is being honored by Montblanc with three exquisite pens.
The Montblanc Ingrid Bergman La Donna Special Edition Fountain, Rollerball and Ballpoint Pens are made with the finest materials and the uncompromising craftsmanship that is Montblanc. Inspired by Ingrid Bergman’s era, the 1940’s, the pen has exquisite details and will wow even the most discerning pen lover. The mother of pearl styled lacquered caps, the 18K gold nibs, the teardrop amethysts, the rose gold accents and Ingrid Bergman’s signature is but a few of the refined details that make these pens so luxurious.
Alongside Ingrid Bergman, Montblanc’s Women’s Collection also honors another wonderful artist who made great contributions to her field, literature, Virginia Woolf, with the Montblanc Virginia Woolf Special Edition Pen. Montblanc not only makes some of the finest pens in the world, it also chooses some of the finest women to model their pens after. Here’s looking at you Montblanc!
“We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people.”
“We have the power to make this the best generation of mankind in the history of the world or to make it the last.”
“Each generation should be made to bear the burden of its own wars, instead of carrying them on, at the expense of other generations.”
Since 1906 Montblanc has passed the art of pen manufacturing from one generation to the next; resulting in the creation of the finest pens available in the world. So what better name for a pen collection from Montblanc than the Montblanc Generation Collection!
Montblanc Generation Pens comprise all the best characteristics of fine writing instruments that Montblanc has developed generation after generation. The stainless steel tips, the precious black resin barrels and caps and the platinum plated rings and clips all contribute to the superiority of these pens! As Montblanc declares “the Montblanc Generation Collection is sure to please first-time Montblanc purchasers as well as long-time fans. Exquisite craftsmanship and superb materials are the hallmarks of this sophisticated collection.
Montblanc the symbol of excellence, generation after generation!
