Montblanc Han Wu-Ti Ateliers Prives Limited Edition Pen and Watch Set. Han Wu-Ti's reign lasted from 141 to 87 BC, an impressive 54 years. During this period Han Wu-Ti, the fifth emperor of the Han Dynasty, formed China like few other rules before or after him.
He defeated Hsiungnu, who were the empires worst enemies. He also doubled the size of his realm with many battles of conquest, expanding his empire in all directions. These activities by Han Wu-Ti (born Liu Ch'e) earned him the honorary title of Wu - The Warlike.
His reign was one of the most prosperous in Chinese history. His conquests brought growth in trading with countries in the west. This brought his empire luxury goods and wealth. In fact, in its best years under Han Wu-Ti China enjoyed a level of affluence and prosperity that has remained unmatched up to the present day.
With "Han Wu-Ti" Montblanc has chosen to commemorate the great emperor who, more than almost any other, exerted a formative influence on the Central Empire. And so it is with that the magnificent Fountain Pen and the precious Wristwatch reflect an element of that golden period of Chinese history.
This exquisite fountain pen is made of solid 18k gold (750), the barrel and the cap being coated with magnificent black enamel. The 18-carat gold nib is artfully adorned with the engraving of a five-clawed dragon - a Chinese symbol of fortune, strength and longevity. A gold emblem on the cap, embossed by the hands of a master craftsman, shows a portrait of the emperor. The name Han Wu Ti has been eternalized on the barrel by artistic inlay work employing quality mother-of-pearl. This automatic wristwatch is a unique masterpiece of traditional Swiss watchmaker artistry, with numerals of solid gold (750) and eight diamonds set in gold, all inlaid in precious mother-of-pearl.
The case is a precision product made of solid gold (750), its black strap of finest crocodile leather finished by a skilled bag-maker. At the center of the dial a resplendent gold emblem embossed by a master's hand shows a portrait of Han Wu-Ti. A timepiece of ageless beauty, its uniqueness documented by the hand-engraved edition number on the back.
