Montblanc 149 vs. Jinhao 159: The comparison you didn't know you wanted.
Not a good thing but not a bad thing. At this price point I much prefer C/C rather than them attempting a cheap piston mechanism. # Montblanc Meisterstuck 149 - MSRP $925.00 USD.

First Impressions: Montblanc 149 Fountain Pen — The Gentleman Stationer
The 149 is a luxury icon that represents the best of what Montblanc has to offer, if you can afford the steep price. Fortunately, Montblanc pens can be found on the secondary market, often in like new or barely used condition, for a significant discount, and I typically hunt for Montblancs at pen shows, in retailers’ “gently used” sections, or during Fountain Pen Day or “Black Friday” promotions. I placed an order for this pen during Fontoplumo’s Black Friday sales event, and while the pen took a while to arrive, I’m loving the purchase

Montblanc does not authorize their certified sellers to sell at discount prices on Amazon. However, even though the pen is authentic, it does come with Montblanc’s warranty (that is why the certificate of warranty isn’t stamped).
Is It Worth It? - Montblanc Meisterstuck Pen
My personal preferences aside, if you look at the value development of ballpoint pens and rollerballs, the fountain pen is always higher and appreciates more, therefore, I think the rollerball and ballpoints are not as worth it unless you really hate a fountain pen or you travel by plane a lot. For collecting purposes, the regular Meisterstuck series is not limited by any means and therefore, you only have a certain degree of appreciation over time, however, if you go with limited editions from Mont Blanc, you can look at those as an investment just like maybe art, musical instruments, or stocks. Today, Mont Blanc has lots of different limited editions; some are very high-priced, others are very low priced, but if you look at some of the very early editions such as the 1992 Ernest Hemingway pen, which was part of the writers edition and it was based on the 149 but it looked more like its predecessor the 139, it had a coral orange barrel with dark brown elements and today, if you want an unused version, you have to pay anywhere between three-three and a half to four thousand dollars

I would have considered a MB149 2nd hand if the price was right or anyone had ever offered a decent example, but in the absence of that I am forced to go new. So, pros and cons to those on the list welcome (would be bought from a dealer that checks nibs, for those hating on Visconti! :) ).

Superb Writing Instrument
The MB-149 is a beautiful pen, unusually comfortable in the hand for a large pen. It rests comfortably in the hand with the cap either posted or unposted. The nib is very smooth. The medium nib runs a bit wet, but not excessively so. It is pricey, but worth the splurge…probably.
