ST. MORITZ Limited

Celluloid and artistic painting for celebrating St. Moritz St. Moritz

St. MoritzSt. Moritz has come to symbolise all that a Swiss destination should be: genteel and refined, exclusive yet welcoming. So great is the impact that St Moritz has had on the global consciousness, since it first welcomed skiers nearly 150 years ago, that it has grown to be both cinematic and literary "shorthand" for luxurious getaways.
As far back as 1934, Hitchcock used it in a movie and, later, St. Moritz appears in James Bond's movies (Goldfinger, For your eyes only).
But St Moritz supports much more than skiing, golf and other leisure pursuits. Every year, this town welcomes the arts, celebrated with exhibitions, seminars, walks and other attractions.

Montegrappa created a series of pens honouring the Swiss resort of St Moritz, coinciding with the 2010 St Moritz Arts Masters, being one of the official sponsor.

St Moritz pens

The pens are made in celluloid, a material made from cotton fiber mixed with natural pigments and pearl, and decorated with sterling silver trims (or solid gold, for a more precious version).

To decorate the barrel, the Montegrappa designers chose three different posters that illustrate the historical myth of St Moritz; each image is hand painted by the artist Lorena Straffi.



The Woods

The pen features warm brown celluloid cap and bottom; the barrel has been painted with a reproduction of a vintage advertising of St. Moritz, with a snowy landscape in a wood, few skiers and a horse-sledge following them.
It shows an untouched and unspoiled environment, and a very modern and absolutely exclusive sport (ski) in the Twenties.



White Turf

The pen with red celluloid cap and bottom (and red lacquered St. Moritz' logo, too, in the central band) has been hand painted reproducing the advertising of a horse race in 1927. White snowy turf, and white mountains on the background, with a clear blue sky. The red jacket of a jockey links to the red cap.



Summer Golf

The third pen has cap and bottom in deep blue celluloid (and the St Moritz logo on the central band in blue lacquer too) and has been painted with the vintage poster that advertised the 18-hole Golf Club, in a summer landscape.
