Montegrappa launches the Batman Limited Edition Box Set
October 19, 2015: Montegrappa has launched the Batman Limited Edition Box Set which includes the Batman pen, cufflinks and a wristwatch – with only 500 such boxes being created!
The first 500 Batman fountain pens have been made available as part of a set. Pens with numbering from 501 to 1939 have been issued for individual sale. Appropriately, there are 1939 Batman fountain pens, the number signifying the year of his first appearance. All of the pens' components are made of aluminum with a black anodized finish, except for clip and decorative rings, which are fashioned from ruthenium-plated brass. This choice of materials provides the pens with a dark grey hue evoking the color of Batman's original costume. Its surfaces are engraved with bats in flight. The fountain pen terminates in a two-tone rhodium plated 18k gold nib bearing the celebrated bat logo.
The cufflinks are jet-black representations of the bat logo in three dimensions, with the bat shape cut out to expose a surface of carbon fiber. The folding grip carries the Montegrappa name.
Based on the Montegrappa NeroUno watches, the matching wristwatch is powered by a Swiss-made Ronda quartz movement, housed in a 42mm stainless steel case secure against water ingress to 5atm. The case is finished in black PVD, with six screws securing the back.
Embodying all of the mystery that has kept the Dark Knight's following fascinated for generations, the wristwatch is finished in black, with the flying bats pattern found on the pen traversing the bezel and the dial. At the 12 o'clock position is the oval bat insignia in nickel, as are the numerals at the 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions, the dot markers for the remaining hours, and the curved blade hands for the hours and minutes. The sub-dial for the seconds and the crown boast the Batman emblem, with the Montegrappa logo engraved on the side of the case. A sapphire crystal protects the all-black dial and its nickel embellishments. The back is engraved with the bat symbol and the relevant serial numbers. Attaching the watch to the wrist is a carbon strap with black PVD tongue buckle.
The packaging for the Batman Limited Edition Fountain Pen has also been designed to delight the owner. The all-black outer boxes bear bats-in-flight patterns, the inner box featuring a large bat emblem on its lid, while the inner lid shows Gotham City at night.
