Santorini… “To me you will be unique in all the world”.
Montblanc is a brand that totally conforms to It’s a MAN’s Class values and aesthetic quality. Minimal designs, effortless sophistication, impeccable quality and traditional craftsmanship is what makes them so special. Being synonymous to storytelling, I chose to accompany me to my trip to Santorini and become part of my unique tale.
Montblanc is considered to be the epitome of elegance and Tzannes SA, their official retailer in Greece, represents it fittingly – with respect, modesty and refined aesthetics.
“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart”
Words are not enough to describe this island. Absolutely unique, Santorini captivates your soul from the very first time you step on the island. The traditional white buildings hanging on the cliffs and the wild nature meet the view of the volcano that bursts upon the endless blue and the result is simply breathtaking! Santorini is characterised by the idyllic views and a strong vibe that can affect even the most incurious visitor.
“- Créer des liens ? … -Tu seras pour moi unique au monde.”
The Meisterstück Le Petit Prince pays tribute to the power of gifting, imagination and the importance of transmitting ideas and values to the ones we love. Being inspired by the cherished literary character of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Le Petit Prince, Montblanc created a special edition Meisterstück collection, embellished with design elements based on Saint-Exupéry’s unique hand-drawn illustrations.
The Meisterstück Le Petit Prince edition brings together the heritage of a timeless gifting favourite and the cultural influence of a literary great. Filled with great meaning and symbolism, the new special edition reaffirms Montblanc’s belief that writing is a gift, one that is passed from one generation to the other with a positive message, just like the ideas, dreams and thoughts that Le Petit Prince shares with the world around him.
The Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Classique Ballpoint Pen in deep blue precious resin is inspired by the dark blue universe sky. The cap, milled with a fox face pattern, reveals a sentence from the Le Petit Prince book and is crowned with the iconic emblem. The central ring of the three platinum-coated rings features the Montblanc brand name and the clip is embellished with a yellow lacquered star.
“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important”

With timeless aesthetics and intricate mechanical movements crafted entirely in-house, the watches produced in Villeret still express the core values upon which the company was founded in 1858.
The new Star 4810 automatic watch by Montblanc boasts both a distinctive Montblanc design expression as well as classic watchmaking codes. Featuring a black dial, an unbreakable mineral crystal glass and a stainless steel bracelet, the Star 4810 was the ideal choice for my trip to Santorini, as it is both resistant and stylish!
“All grown-ups were once children… but only a few of them remember it”
When I travel I take with me things that help me remember who I am. Books that I love, photographs, notes, my favourite music, even fragrances… Things that create an invisible bond between me, my past and my loved ones. As a result, I want to carry this treasure with me to all my new experiences!
The Montblanc Sartorial Jet collection combines clean elegance and lightness. The Document Case is equipped with a front zipped pocket and a single main compartment with zip closure. Water resistant blue nylon features brown leather details, providing a durable yet elegant result.
