2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission moon landing. In a licensed collaboration with NASA, Montegrappa has recreated the Saturn V rocket as a pen to commemorate man's first steps on the Moon.
The Moon Landing Limited Edition is crafted from a striking combination of white pearlized resin and polished sterling silver trim with decorative enameling to represent the fuselage markings of the original Saturn V.
A semi-detachable barrel simulates the separation of the second and third stages of the Saturn V rocket, and reveals special viewing windows that expose the pen’s internal ink flux mechanism. The pocket clip recalls the tower crane of the Cape Kennedy launch pad, while its blindcap features the conical rocket thrusters.
The Moon Landing Limited Edition sports an 18K gold nib with an engraving of the official Apollo 11 mission patch and arrives in an elaborate presentation case featuring a likeness of the Apollo 11 command module.
As its name suggests, the Moon Landing Limited Edition fountain pen is limited to just 363 pens, denoting Saturn V's height in feet when standing vertically.
