Producing writing instruments since 1906, the Meisterstück Blue Hour collection stands out from the crowd, inspired by the "magical hour" between daylight and nighttime with hexagonal detailing engraved into the barrel and coated with a blue lacquer. The cap is crowned by the iconic white Montblanc emblem inlaid and three rings embossed with the Montblanc brand name.

When creating its line of luxury writing instruments, Breguet collaborated with world-renowned pen manufacture Montegrapppa to pay homage to Breguet’s classic timepieces. The sterling silver body and cap of the Classique are decorated with the same engine-turned guilloche that adorns Breguet watch dials and the silver clip mimics the house’s signature hour hand. Resin accents in Breguet Blue adorn each end and the 18-karat rhodium-plated gold nib has the brand's iconic ‘B’ monogrammed at its centre.
