Sign it royally
A look at the Ca$h Pen which is ushering in the Bling-Bling culture
Montegrappa’s Fortuna range of resin fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints lends itself to personal expression. Following the application of the Skull motif is the Ca$h Pen, a wry look at Bling-Bling culture.
Embracing the devil-may-care, if-you’ve-got-it-flaunt-it excess of a world dancing to a hip-hop soundtrack, the Ca$h Pen is a showy as a stretch limo – only pocket-sized. Underneath the glitz is a writing instrument made for signing.
Based on the black resin Fortuna pen, Ca$h features a cap and barrel adorned with raised dollar signs. The clip, which is fitted with Montegrappa’s roller to facilitate smooth removal from one’s pocket, features the $-sign and cap top set with the bling-bling-iest of stones.
Three trim colours are offered to accent the black barrel and the cap in palladium, rose gold and all-black ruthenium. For the palladium and the rose gold versions, clear crystals are fitted, while the ruthenium edition features black crystals – reminiscent of the blacked-out windows in a limo.
The Ca$h Pen is available as a fountain pen with a choice of three nib writing grades, a rollerball and a twist-action ballpoint. Even the packaging speaks of excess – a box that looks like a stack of $100 bills. Price: `39,500 to `45,500 Details: 022 4266 8602
