Montblanc Heritage Rouge & Noir
Reinventing men’s accessories around the theme of the serpent.
As an homage to 110 years of fine craftsmanship, Montblanc introduces a collection of new men’s accessories to coincide with the launch of the Heritage Rouge & Noir writing instruments. Designed around the theme of the serpent, a reference to the serpent clip design of one of the Maison’s 1920s writing instruments, the assortment of cufflinks, tie bar and bracelet reimagine the creature with contemporary masculine refinement.
A prevalent artistic motif during the Art Deco and Art Nouveau periods, the serpent not only represents desire, power and mystery, it is a powerful symbol of rebirth and renewal. In a fitting tribute to the Maison’s quest for excellence since 1906, the serpent and other motifs referencing the pioneering spirit are used for the first time in men’s accessories with unexpected designs made from the finest materials.
Designed to be paired with the Ultimate Serpent Limited Edition 1, a one-of-a-kind writing instrument that sets new records with the quantity of gold used and the rare Montblanc Diamond that crowns it, a pair of solid red gold cufflinks features the special diamond cut in the shape of the Montblanc emblem. Numbered 1/1, the cuff links feature a skeletonized frame for the display of the unique 1,91ct F/VVS1 and 1,92ct F/VVS1 Montblanc Diamonds.
The 1906 Heritage Edition honours the Maison’s founders: Alfred Nehemias, August Eberstein and Claus Voss with three one-of-a-kind pairs of cufflinks in yellow gold, white gold and red gold. Fascinated by the many mechanical innovations happening abroad, the trio came together to develop a new writing instrument setting in motion a revolution in writing culture.
