    Commemorating one of the most revered figures in modern history, the Special Edition John F. Kennedy makes symbolic references to the life of J.F. Kennedy in subtle design details. The burgundy-colored precious resin refers to Kennedy’s famous Ivy League style and is inspired by his time at Harvard University. His initials “JFK” are engraved on the champagne-tone gold-coated fittings clip, and the three champagne-tone gold-coated cap rings stand for Kennedy’s three brothers. In a tribute to the national hopes and dreams embodied in Kennedy’s pet project, the Apollo space program, the handcrafted 585 gold nib is engraved with the lunar module that landed on the moon in 1969. The Special Edition is crowned by the Montblanc emblem in precious resin.

The pattern refers to the jeans he wore in his favorite movies. The clip is reminiscent of a shotgun barrel as seen in his role as Jett Rink in Giant in 1956. Which he carried on his shoulders in one of his most famous scenes. At the top of the clip the Montblanc emblem can be found in resin. Next to the emblem the dates of his birth and death are finely engraved. The cap top is engraved in a pattern of a dollar bill.

On the cone of the pen, there is an additional engraving showing the geographic coordinated of the place Dean had his car accident. Now known as the James Dean Memorial Junction.

    THE MAN OF THE TIMES.

    Few creative figures have left such an indelible mark on popular culture as Walt Elias Disney. His unforgettable cartoon characters, optimistic storytelling and pioneering filmmaking have captured the minds and imaginations of adults and children alike. A lifelong innovator, he brought the on-screen entertainment into the real world with the opening of Disneyland Park in 1955.

    “I do not make films primarily for children. I make them for the child in all of us.” - Walt Disney

    Since his humble beginnings as a cartoon artist, Disney continuously challenged the creative status quo, pushing the boundaries of filmmaking and entertainment. The iconic Steamboat Willie brought us the beloved Mickey Mouse in 1928 and is recognised as an early example of an animation with synchronised sound. Lauded as a creative genius before turning 40, Disney was honoured with a total of 32 Academy Awards and 59 nominations – a record that remains unchallenged today.

    PIONEERING SPIRIT. REIMAGINED.

    Created in collaboration with The Walt Disney Company, the design of the Montblanc Great Characters Limited Edition Walt Disney™ is inspired by the famous monorail at Disneyland Park - the first daily operating monorail in the Western Hemisphere. The writing instrument's clip refers to the smokestack on the boat in Steamboat Willie, while the black, red and yellow colour combination and the Au585 solid gold rhodium-coated nib is a nod to Mickey Mouse. An exciting surprise can be found on the precious resin cap and barrel, decorated with a scanimation of the iconic character.
