Montblanc Brand Story

It all started in 1906 with the vision to create a tool that would revolutionize the art of handwriting. Inspired by the latest mechanical innovations they witnessed during their stay in America, Alfred Nehemias, a Hamburg merchant, and August Eberstein, an engineer teamed up with Claus Voss to bring their idea to life. Together, they produced a writing instrument with non-leaking technology and a piston convertor that would change the course of writing history forever. In 1910, the three founders adopted the name Montblanc for their growing company, inspired by the highest mountain in Europe that would come to symbolize their vision of excellence and their pursuit of ultimate performance and the finest craftsmanship.  The six-point white star, representing the six snow-covered glaciers of the majestic mountain, would soon become the company’s emblem.

The introduction in 1924 of the Meisterstück was undoubtedly the most famous writing instrument ever produced with a name that proudly proclaims its stature as a masterpiece of precision craftsmanship.  Hailed as an icon of style and design, the fountain pen’s nib was engraved with the number “4810”, another reference to the Mont Blanc and its height, reinforcing the Maison’s drive to achieve new heights with every product. 

Leather goods have played an important part in Montblanc’s history since 1926 when the company started offering small leather pieces in saffiano leather. After 80 years of development until 2006, the Montblanc Pelletteria in Florence has housed ancestral craftsmanship, state of the art technology and timeless design.

The enduring passion for craftsmanship that was born in Hamburg 110 years ago, was extended to watchmaking with the opening of a manufacture in Le Locle in the Swiss Jura in 1997 where Montblanc applied its founding principles to the production of finely crafted timepieces. Montblanc's watchmaking expertise was further enhanced by the establishment of the Montblanc Manufacture Villeret, perpetuating the rich traditions of Minerva, a small manufacture founded in 1858 famed for its exceptional handmade movements and in particular its chronographs.

Reflecting its ongoing mission to Inspire The World with fine lifetime companions born from the most pioneering ideas, the iconic Montblanc Emblem has become the ultimate seal of performance, innovation, quality and expression of style. With its origins deeply rooted in the culture of handwriting, Montblanc has set an international standard of cultural commitment, with the creation of wide-ranging initiatives to promote arts and culture in many forms, while paying tribute to the modern day patrons who support the advancement of the arts.
