Don't get me wrong, MB does some amazing things with their limited editions, though most people don't even consider these and instead focus on their meisterstuck line and starwalker.
I have owned a number of MBs over the years, and still own two, a Chopin FP and a Generations ballpoint, both gifts from my wife...and while they are "good" pens, they both aren't nearly as good as a few others I have owned, all of which cost alot less...namely Namiki, Pelikan, Aurora, and Cross.
I usually find Rolex guys also have a tendency to like other "similar" products, Montblanc, Harley Davidson, Mercedes, Bose, Armani, Ferragamo....mainstream brands that are often bested by slightly lower cost competitors
