Born in 1901, Walter Elias Disney became one of the most influential and revered film producers of our time, thanks to his unparalleled imagination and inventive ability. The Montblanc Great Characters: Walt Disney Pen pays homage to his creative nature. The overall shape of the writing instrument was inspired by Disney’s legendary Monorail system, while colors are a reference to the original poster from Steamboat Willy. The cap and barrel in matte black precious resin feature several hidden Mickeys, and the signature of Walt Disney can be found on the cap top. The coordinates engraved on the cone give the position of the garage belonging to Walt Disney’s uncle, where Walt Disney and his brother constructed their first camera stand. The fountain pen features a 14kt gold nib engraved with a special message. Every Great Characters Edition commemorates an individual who has broken new ground in the fields of culture, politics, science or the arts, and the impact their legacy has had on the world;
