Born in 1926 in Illinois, Miles Davis was one of the world’s foremost jazz musicians. In honour of this jazz legend, Montblanc has created the Miles Davis Limited Edition 1926.
The Miles Davis Limited Edition 1926 tells the story of one of the greatest jazz personalities. The surface of the cap and barrel is engraved with symbolic motifs in reference to the five major jazz periods he helped to create. Also decorating the cap is a spiral representing the tornado he witnessed as a child and spoke of as the spiritual source of the powerful wind he needed to play the trumpet.
This unique edition is further adorned with an engraving of his silhouette on the handcrafted Au 750 gold nib and ‘2006’ on the barrel in memory of the year his name was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. A star, set with a diamond, is engraved on the barrel, and Miles Davis’s famous album Kind of Blue is reflected in the blue colour on the cone. The Montblanc emblem, made of white agate stone and black onyx, crowns the cap top. This platinum-coated edition is limited to 1,926 fountain pens and 1,926 rollerball in honour of the year of Miles Davis’s birth.
Montblanc also released Miles Davis Special Edition. Honouring the legendary trumpet artist in the platinum-coated clip with finger-valve details, this writing instrument also features his iconic silhouette engraved on the handcrafted Au 585 gold nib. It is available as fountain pen, rollerball and ballpoint pen.
