Chaplin Montblac Modern Times
Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times (1936) inspired the pen's design

It was produced to celebrate Chaplin's seminal Modern Times (1936) and features gold coloured overlay cog wheels that echo the film's dystopian factory setting, while the cap end and clip are in the shape of a bowler hat and a cane.

Only 88 of the pens were ever produced.
