How To Authenticate Montblanc Pens

Montblanc pens are amongst the best and most luxurious writing instruments in the world. However, the market is flooded with wannabes and replicas so it’s important to spot an authentic Montblanc pen from the imitators.

If you don’t know the difference between an authentic and a wannabe, keep reading and we’ll take you through our top 5 ways to authenticate Montblanc pens.

Serial Number

All authentic Montblanc pens have a serial number around the ring of the pen clip. What’s more, most Montblanc pens manufactured after 1991 have an additional 2 digit serial number followed by seven letters.

However, don’t be too quick to trust just because you see any combination of numbers and letters as counterfeit items can also include a fake serial number. To be safe, it’s always best to do your research before purchasing any item. First, try checking the official Montblanc website or even just a simple google search.

Only Buy From a Reputable Source

It’s always good to buy straight from the source. However, new Montblanc pens can cost a fortune, that’s why many people are opting for pre-owned luxury pens and other designer items to save a buck. Pre-owned luxury items are often in excellent condition, in fact, sometimes they’re purchased without being used!

Of course, whenever you buy something online (or even in store), make sure you’re purchasing from a reputable source. Luxury resellers like Bvaultre are so confident that we offer a lifetime return policy, should you prove the item is anything less than authentic.

The Price

Whether you’re purchasing pre-owned or brand-new, Montblanc pens hold their value well and are great investments. This is why it’s extremely rare to find a cheap Montblanc pen. If you see a luxury pen listed for R500 or less – run! You won’t find an authentic luxury pen for anything less than R1 000. Therefore, the price of any pre-owned luxury item can be an indicator of its authenticity. 

Check The Refills

Rollerball pens have an additional feature that helps you authenticate them: refills. Mont Blanc rollerball refills are specially threaded and screw into the barrel. Even some of the best counterfeit pens fail to produce authentic-looking refills. What’s more, copycats often imitate a standard plug-in Schmidt-style 888 refill.

The Luxury Feel

Counterfeit manufacturers focus too much attention on fooling you with the appearance of an item and often neglect the finer details like the feel of the item. However, a true luxury pen appreciator will know that Montblanc pens feel solid and luxurious. Fortunately, this is very difficult to replicate.
