In 2003, Montblanc honoured the legendary mathematician and astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus. Copernicus was born in Poland in 1473 and is known, amongst many other things, for formulating the model of the universe where the Sun is at the centre, with the planets revolving around it. The design of the pen reflects this idea, with the nine sterling silver rings symbolising the planets orbiting around the sun.Both the barrel and cap are crafted from a dark resin which has then been lacquered. The clip (also silver) has a green meteorite stone at the end of it, representing the universe. The 18k medium nib has a fine engraving of Copernicus' orbital charts. It's a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink. This really is a wonderfully detailed writing instrument and the star of the show is the large mother-of-pearl snowcap, that sits atop the cap.
The important details are as follows... As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication - "izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens".
