The Monteverde Innova Formula M is an extraordinary writing instrument collection that combines unique materials and cutting edge designs that will entice not only pen aficionados, but anyone who dreams of life in the fast lane. Inspired by the racing industry, the Monteverde Innova Formula M collection evokes the power, speed and elegance of competition.
All pens in the collection feature a 304 wire-braided stainless steel sleeve with PVD coating over a brass barrel. Wire braiding is often fitted on high-performance cars as it offers the best possible protection against mechanical damage. The braided mesh is made by winding wire around a core on spools that are rapidly rotated in a circular pattern, weaving the wire together and molding it into a flexible and robust braid. 304 wire-braided mesh's advantage lays in its incredible durability and resistance against UV rays, abrasion, and chemical corrosion, making it virtually indestructible.
Each writing instrument is fully-covered with matte PVD coating, providing key performance features while giving additional vibrancy, luster, and durability. PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) is a process that uses diverse thin film deposition techniques that focus on vaporizing a solid material in a vacuum environment, resulting in deposition onto the surface as a pure material coating. This material coating is appealing to the eye but also extremely durable, can reduce friction and serve as a barrier against any potential damage caused by the external environment and usage of the product. Moreover, PVD coating is highly resistant to tarnishing and corrosion, which makes it perfectly suitable for decorative finishes with colors that do not fade.
Each pen features cap and a front sections made from solid brass and coated with matte PVD. A unique and attractive carbon fiber ring offsets the gunmetal appointments and completes the racy design.
The Monteverde Innova fountain pen is offered with your choice of a reliable, smooth-writing German made JoWo #6 black steel nib in extra-fine, fine, medium, broad, 1.1mm stub, or the new JoWo Omniflex flexible steel nib for variation in line width.
It fills via standard international converter or ink cartridge, both of which are included. Each pen is housed in a luxury gift box with a custom-designed sleeve.
In 1999 Monteverde USA was founded in Canoga Park, California USA with the intention to create writing instruments that feature unparalleled quality, function, and affordable luxury.
