The beginnings of the company date as far back as 1912, when Manifattura pennini d’oro e penne stilografiche in Bassano del Grappa was founded, a factory making golden nibs and fountain pens. The location was chosen because the facility is located in the province of Vicenza, one of the oldest and most famous regions in the world of jewellery. Montegrappa’s home was also the site of the company’s first shop and, to this day, the enterprise emphasises its ties to Bassano, which have lasted for over a hundred years.
Over the years, Montegrappa has expanded its portfolio, adding to meticulously crafted and world-famous pens a selection of watches, cufflinks, and other luxury items. All the items manufactured by Montegrappa exhibit Italian taste and the genius loci of the extraordinary and picturesque region where they are born.
Wealth Solutions was established in 2007 with a mission to provide unique products for collectors. The company was created by experienced enthusiasts of exceptional goods, such as fine Bordeaux wines, top quality whisky, and art. Over the past nine years, more than 8000 clients have trusted Wealth Solutions by purchasing top quality collectibles, choices made by using the company’s expertise.
Wealth Solutions managed to place on the market one of the oldest whiskies ever, the 67-year-old Glen Grant 1949. The cognac houses Tiffon and Bache-Gabrielsen surprised the company’s customers with special editions of a beverage originating from the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries. Wealth Solutions was the originator behind the idea of creating the Spirit Watch line, featuring watches with capsules filled with rare and legendary alcoholic beverages. The first in the series – the Cognac Watch – contained the 1762 Gautier cognac. The beverage was officially registered by the Guinness World Records™ as the oldest cognac ever sold on the auction market.
