The Montegrappa America’s Cup fountain pen celebrates its namesake competition with low-relief engravings depicting the designs that adorn the sailing trophy. Montegrappa’s production of 1,851 pieces in sterling silver, priced at $2,200, is a reference to the race’s debut year of 1851. An additional 152 pieces in 18-karat gold, priced at $10,500, are a nod to the 152 years that have passed since.
