The Montblanc Great Characters Elvis Presley Special Edition honors the King of Rock 'n
Roll in black precious resin - the color of the leather suit he wore for the famous 1968 NBC TV Special finished with platinum-plated fittings. When it aired on December 3, 1968, the Special was the most watched television program of the week and is considered a highlight of its career.
Four years later, Elvis made history with his concert "Aloha from Hawaii - via Satellite", the first live concert ever broadcast via satellite. The diamond-shaped texture on the barrel and cap is inspired by the eye-catching gold ring pattern that Elvis created for this show. The gold-plated clip evokes Elvis' love for V8s with its V-shape and 8-hole design, while the handmade rhodium-plated 14 kt. gold nib is engraved with the title of one of his many hit songs, 'Blue Suede Shoes'.
