Year: 2017 (unveiled during MONTBLANC EssentialMoment in Singapore, 11 – 13 September2017)

You must be stout-hearted men, and discarding, withoutvain regrets, all hopes of anything but victory or death

Before the Bttle of Ticinus in 218 BC to his soldiersaccording to Titus Livius, Book XXIV, 21, 44, 8

Homage to the legend of Hannibal Barca, theCarthaginian general, considered one of the greatest military commanders inhistory, whose genius and daring continues to fire imaginations. Thismasterpiece-edition merges his outstanding strategy with design codes of thegreat tactical feats, in which he was involved.

The fountain pen made of solid Au750 red gold,diamonds and cowed by a Montblanc emblem made of mother-of-pearl and set ingranite. The cap is something we never saw before on standard MB creations.This LE86 version shows a cap in olive wood with UV razer leopard patternengravings to provide the look of the leopard skin capes Hannibal’s soldierswore as protection in battle. As Montblanc vintage Collectors know, the animalier pattern is something coherentwith MB tradition. It’s famous and very sought after the Giraffe pattern on MBPrecious Metal Safety fillers from 1921 – 1927.

Regardless of the different stylistic choicesadopted the distinctive feature of this new model is the clip in the shape ofan elephant’s head. Yes, the famous elephants that were part of the Hannibal’scrossing of the Rhone and march towards the Alps.

Between 1920 and 1940 Montblanc has expressedall its creativity giving birth to some very unique clips (of whom the mostfamous is the iconic Montblanc snake clip). So, there are many examples but Ishall limit myself to two; the spectacular silverclips depicting the whole mountain range and the summit of Montblanc wereproduced for the French market only. Equally famous is the Montblanc monkeyclip.

As far as I know Montblanc neverofficially made a elephant shaped clip. However this kind of (unbranded) clip were produced between 1920 and 1940 with an interesting art deco design. So, Ipersonally approve this stylistic choice.

Another reference to the Punic cuirass ofHannibal’s time is the decoration on the cap, which recalls Phoenician armour.Symbolising the snowy mountain crossing in the Alps, the cap top is made ofgranite, crowned with the Montblanc emblem in mother-of-pearl.

The barrel of the Hannibal Barca LE86 is madeof black lacquer and translucent black resin under an ornate skeleton made ofAu 750 red gold. The Au 750 red gold cone and ring recall the rings worn by theRoman aristocracy. The lacquer inlay on the end on the cone refers to theimpressive mosaics found at Carthage and the surrounding area in modern-dayTunisia.

A laurel wreath like the one appearing on theancient Hannibal coin is engraved on the handcrafted Au 750 red gold nib.
