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.
In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Monteverde USA® is reintroducing one of their first signature pen collections. A true classic, the Innova™ is one of the first (in a long line of) innovative pens to be designed under the Monteverde USA® name. Featuring a slick carbon fiber body blended with special acrylic resin and chrome accents, the original Innova™ broke the mold back in 1999 and established what is now one of Monteverde USA®’s signature elements used within many of their outstanding pen collections: carbon fiber.
Now, back and even more stunning than ever and the special second Limited Edition Innova™ once again features that same blend of high-tech black braided carbon fiber mixed with resilient black resin. Gunmetal parts adorns the clip, band, and trim, enhancing the elegance of each Innova™ pen. Beautifully engraved along the front of the mid-band is the Monteverde USA® logo with the backside featuring a “20th Anniversary” print. Displayed along the top band you’ll find the Monteverde USA® mountain logo engraved and filled with soft silver color. Stunning and sleek, each Innova has the perfect flair, whether it is for a formal occasion, business, or casual setting.
Each 20th Anniversary Limited Edition Innova™ is a numbered limited edition of 1999 pieces; in homage to the year Monteverde USA® opened their doors and forever changed the fountain pen industry for good. Every fountain pen is tastefully engraved with Innova™ logo and limited edition number exclusive to each pen along the bottom of the barrel. We cannot honor specific number requests.
This fountain pen is offered with your choice of a reliable, smooth-writing German made JoWo #6 steel nib in extra-fine, fine, medium, broad, or 1.1mm stub in black, or the new JoWo Omniflex flexible steel nib in silver for variation in line width. With six nib options, you are sure to find a selection to fit your handwriting style.
Our note about the JoWo Omniflex nib: This flex nib will allow you to experience more bounce and softness than writing with conventional nibs. You can achieve some line variation with a little additional downward pressure, to a point. We recommend flexing the nib to about twice the line width that you would see without using any pressure. Please take care to avoid pressing too hard on the nib, as over-flexing could prevent the tines from returning fully to their original position and decrease or stop your ink flow.
Each pen is packed in a luxurious Monteverde USA® box and sleeve to commemorate the occasion. The limited edition fountain pen includes a special 30ml ink bottle with a unique Innova™ anniversary label along the bottle.
