The colours of this edition – turquoise and carmine red – were favoured in Aztec culture and used in royal garments. The engravings on the Ag 925 sterling silver cap represent Moctezuma’s weapons, skulls and traditional Aztec’s ornaments. The lacquered turquoise barrel is engraved with a pattern reminiscent of his cloak, a symbol of the high rank of Moctezuma I, and features four lines of Au 750 solid champagne-tone gold, evoking the cardinal directions that radiated out from the Templo Mayor. The spear-shaped clip is refined with an engraving of a Central American quetzal’s feather and set with a triangular-cut green jade. The forepart of the writing instrument and the cone with its distinctive hammering optic are crafted from Ag 925 sterling silver, contrasting with the precious 750 champagne-tone gold fittings and the handcrafted solid gold nib adorned with the Aztec glyph for the city of Tenochtitlán: a three-armed cactus with a royal diadem and two scrolls. The Montblanc emblem made of mother-of-pearl on the cap top is embedded in the engraving of an Aztec sun disk honours the ruler’s diverse architectural constructions and ornamentation in the cities of the Aztec empire.
