Montblanc soars the heights of luxury and recognition but keeping itself planted to its roots, the brand pays a tribute to a prolific composer of classical era through the series of supreme writing instruments called "Hommage à Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart." The Meisterstück Mozart Jewelry Collection, consisting of three exclusive models - platinum plate, an engraved white lacquer pen with 18 karat rose gold, and a champagne-colored gold pen decorated with diamonds are the ultimate examples of femininity and extravagance. With time, their discreetly unassuming versions were launched that were an instant hit and they still are much admired and much acquired.

Lastly, to add something more to my own enchanting experience with the fascinating series of Meisterstuck, I went through an adequate amount of Google searches if I could find anything rudimentary that can explain in simple words, how Meisterstuck strikes a chord in us. I wanted some answers to how it embodies our precious moments and puts together quite a few words that make stories to tell and I found this on written by an eternal lover of writing, who calls herself Haidji
My new book: I write by hand, my books, stories, notes, wherever I am, no matter when I just write on…notebooks, napkins, over news papers - with the pen I have at the moment. As I started to write my new book; one day, my boyfriend gave me a present. It was the Meisterstuck, I was so happy like only a writer can be, finding the right pen…to write with. Since then, I still write wherever I am, when inspiration catches me because writing is like breathing. I wrote my new book all with Meisterstuck, did this make my book a masterpiece too? ;)
I am now, writing my next book…and I write all my notes with the Meisterstuck, of course.
