The German-born theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, whose great intelligence and originality have made the word ‘Einstein’ synonymous with genius, impressively went on to publish more than 300 scientific papers along with 150 non-scientific works in his lifetime, to be regarded as the most influential physicist of the 20th Century and father of modern physics. Best known for his milestone discoveries like the mass-energy equivalence E = mc2 and the general theory of relativity, effecting a revolution in physics, Albert Einstein’s genius actually redefined the universe. Now, 58-years after the scientist’s death at the age of 76, the German manufacturer of luxury writing instruments Montblanc pays tribute to the genius of the world’s most revered scientist by presenting the Great Characters Limited Edition 2013: Albert Einstein.
Available in Montblanc boutiques, the Albert Einstein Edition has notably been limited to just 3,000 examples, the number which represents roughly one hundredth of the value so essential to Einstein’s vision of the universe, that is the speed of light 299,792.458 km/s.
And, symbolizing the wealth of knowledge Einstein left to mankind, the world’s most popular equation and the formula that changed the world E = mc2 has been decoratively engraved along with some of the other very important formulas on the Limited Edition 3000.
Further, the platinum-plated body of this exclusive writing instrument shines with the soft light of a distant star while the dark blue lacquer of the cap brings to mind the velvety darkness of the endless universe, while the grid on the cap is inspired by Einstein’s general theory of relativity. And, the Albert Einstein Edition’s body and cone comes engraved with Einstein’s most important formulas and the hand-crafted rhodium-plated 18K gold nib which features an engraving of the element named after him, einsteinium.
Besides, this exclusive writing instrument which brings to life the extraordinary genius of Albert Einstein who made an enduring impact on mankind, we have also seen some of the other Montblanc limited editions designed and created in honor of great individuals like the Montblanc Writers Edition Carlo Collodi pen, the limited-edition Montblanc Alfred Hitchcock pens which pay tribute to the master of horror and suspense, the limited edition pens to pay tribute to actress Ingrid Bergman, the two Artisan Edition Pablo Picasso limited-edition writing instruments as a tribute to Pablo Picasso, and the recently released Montblanc Meisterstück Mozart jewellery fountain pens which pays homage to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era.
