The cap top is engraved with the first letter of the six most used alphabets in the world, a symbolic reference to the early stages of education when children learn to write their first ever character. Alongside the letters that encircle the cap, a single precious blue sapphire celebrates the bond between Montblanc and UNICEF.

The classic black gives way to vibrant blue for the Meisterstück, Writing is a Gift Blue Solitaire Edition with both cap and barrel adorned with an elegant pattern created from the characters engraved on a blue lacquer background punctuated with fine silver colour lines. Meisterstück, Writing is a Gift Skeleton 149 Edition takes the alphabet motif to new heights, by crafting a platinum-coated three-dimensional skeleton out of the six characters, allowing the precious blue resin underneath to shine through the elaborate sculptural design.
