The serpent slithers its way back to the limelight with the new accessories by Montblanc.

To commemorate more than a century of innovation and excellence in the world of writing instruments, fine watchmaking and leather goods, luxury brand Montblanc launched a collection of men’s accessories that tie in with the launch of the Heritage Rouge & Noir writing instruments.

The accessories are a work of art in their own right, with small details that showcase the craftsmanship and skill of the artisans behind each design. Centring on the theme of the serpent, the brand has revisited the serpent clip design of the Maison’s 1920s writing instruments. The motif that was popular during the Art Deco and Art Nouveau periods is a symbol of power, mystery, rebirth and renewal.Montblanc_Ultimate-Serpent-LE1-diamond

The Ultimate Serpent Limited Edition 1 is made to be paired with some of the finest Montblanc accessories. Fitted with the Montblanc-cut diamond that was commissioned for the brands centennial anniversary, the writing instrument is best paired with the unique solid red gold cufflinks. The cufflinks showcase the Montblanc-cut diamond that sits on a skeletonized frame. Montblanc_Ultimate-Serpent-LE

Along with it is the 1906 Heritage Edition in honor of the brand founders. In red gold, white gold and yellow gold, the cufflinks feature a technical feat by the brand with a Montblanc diamond suspended in the centre of the cufflink, similar to a compass even with a hemisphere visible from the side. There is even a Heritage Rouge & Noir Limited Edition solid red gold cufflinks that highlight the craftsmanship that has been honed for over a century. With the scales of the snake engraved intricately to form the body, you can choose to use either rubies, sapphires or emeralds for the eyes. Each version of the cufflink is limited to three pieces.
