Montegrappa salutes the extraordinary life of Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), whose duty to discovery triggered the scientific revolution. Inspirations from his homeland’s Warsaw and Warmia regions frame Copernicus’ landmark cosmic theory in sterling silver and shimmering enamel. Vermeil detailing places the sun at the centre of everything – a reminder to remain constantly curious about the world around us.
The celestial globe found on Warsaw’s Copernicus Monument is a key reference to the life and wisdom of the great Polish astronomer. Its mechanical movement stimulates thinking with elegant play factor.
Copernicus transformed the world with his heliocentric theory. By proposing that Earth and the planets orbited the sun, he ran counter to the conventional wisdom of scientists, philosophers and the clergy.
550 fountain pens and rollerballs commemorate the anniversary of Copernicus’ birth, and the profound impact of his findings. Astronomer, mathematician, physician, priest…he was a man ahead of his time.
Reserve Edition. A Nicolaus Copernicus timepiece is an exclusive accompaniment to the first 55 fountain pens in the series. 42mm, ornamented steel/titanium case. Manual movement with 60-hour power reserve.
