The collection has features inspired by the rocket bodies shape, the first, second and third stages. The first stage includes designs such as the American Flag; the pocket clip represents the stairway that supports the rocket. The blind cap is reproduced with the exhaust nozzles of the engines of the space-craft, detailed with red enamel.
Available as a roller ball or fountain pen, the latter is piston-fed, and its nib is crafted in 18k gold.
Montegrappa have made 365 fountain pens available in resin and Sterling Silver, the number denoting Saturn V’s height in feet when standing vertically. 110 Rollerball pens have been offered in resin and sterling silver, because the equivalent of 365ft in meters is 110.
The ultimate edition of 25 fountain and 25 Rollerball pens will be made in solid 18k gold and titanium, totalling the 50 years celebrated by the anniversary of the first landing on the Moon.
