Hugh Jackman presents: The Montblanc Story – Pioneering since 1906. For the pioneer in you.

The Heritage Collection Rouge et Noir celebrates the 110 year old pioneering spirit of Monblanc. Chinese Fans by getting into the app can at first see on an envelope with handwritten Chinese, “Art can’t change the world, but it can change the way people think—and people can change the world.”

Users are transported to the 19th century, thanks to a showcase a of Montblanc’s heritage collection and through a series of history animations all about music, art and traditions.

An Interactive campaign


Users are asked to answer a simple question : Red or Black ? Afterwards, they are invited to share the app on WeChat.

Moreover, for a short period, some lucky fans had a chance to win limited-edition Montblanc gifts.

In 2014, Montblanc did the same kind of questionnaire campaign to promote its Meisterstück pens with a « Hot-or-Not » type app.
