Diamonds For The Write Moment

Wondering what to get that certain gentleman for Father's Day--you know, the one who has everything? Well, you're in luck. We doubt he has this extraordinary writing instrument created by aristrocratic fountain pen maker Montblanc.
 
Write on time, May 23, 2011 to be exact, International auctioneers Bonhams & Butterfields in Los Angeles will bring several exquisite writing instruments to the auction block. This particular sale contains over 200 lots of superb fountain pens, chiefly Montblancs.
 
But the star of the show is undoubtedly a Montblanc Meisterstuck Solitaire Royal LeGrand, the legendary Diamond Solitaire. Pre-auction estimates place the extraordinary pens' price at $125,000US- $175,000US.
 
This made to order limited edition pen is encrusted with over 4,600 brilliant cut white diamonds on an 18K yellow gold barrel;  making it one of Montblanc's most exclusive creations. Paddles anyone?
