Notes: The start of spring is a reawakening of colors, scents, and warmth. Nature renews itself and gives a new beginning. In Japan, this is the time of the cherry blossom - a colorful festival of the senses, filled with the subtle perfume of the pink-white national flower of the Land of the Rising Sun. Since the Japanese emperor Saga held the first cherry blossom festival in the year 812, it has become a national tradition that captivates the whole country and celebrates the start of the long-awaited spring. Long cherished and immortalized in Japanese culture, Sakura, the cherry blossom, is the ultimate symbolic flower. Signifying life, beauty, birth, and new beginnings, this beautiful bloom also symbolizes bittersweet transience and the struggle against it. Embracing this symbolism, Montblanc's Sakura honors the Japanese culture and pays homage to the Crown Prince and Princess. Montblanc lets the cherry blossom bloom forever on its Sakura Precious Version Limited Edition of 8, featuring an 18k gold nib with 'Sakura' as its Japanese Kanji character. With a solid 18k gold body adorned with diamonds, garnets, and rubies, this sublime creation honors this timeless bloom and symbolizes the celebration of life. Produced in the year 2002, the Sakura Precious Version is limited to only 8 pieces worldwide. This precious Limited Edition is a unique treasure from the Montblanc Atelier. Each individual writing instrument is the work of a master craftsman and bears a Limited Edition number as proof of its exclusivity.
