Talking to Nicolas Baretzki, the CEO of Montblanc

Montblanc has become a real watchmaker after the years. Some 30 percent of the turnover today is generated from selling watches. It was my very first time to interview the new CEO of Montblanc. I invite you to listen to our conversation ...



I recently had the chance to already see all the new Montblanc watches coming in 2018, but unfortunately it is much to early to talk about them and/or to show any pictures.

Meanwhile I can offer you my first interview with Nicolas Baretzki, who took over from Jérôme Lambert, after Jérôme became the new Head of Operations of Compagnie Financière Richemont SA and a member of the Senior Executive Committee earlier this year.

Nicolas and Jérôme both worked together at Jaeger-LeCoultre before changing to Montblanc. So Nicolas is a real watch-guy and I can tell you - not only after seeing the novelties for 2018 - he is doing a great job ...

Dear Mr. Baretzki,
CEO Montblanc.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela Legacy - 100 Years after his birth.

18th July 2018, will mark a major milestone in Nelson Mandela’s life, had he still be alive on this day, it would have been his centenary 1918 - 2018.

I was wondering how you intend to celebrate this statesman's legacy, will Montblanc be issuing a fountain pen or collection set or limited edition. I would very much like to purchase a Montblanc fountain pen to celebrate his life time achievements 1918 - ∞.

Kindly advise what your planned intentions are and how one can pre-order such a pen. I will leave you with this quote from Nelson Mandela - ❝ It always seems impossible until it's done ❞

I look forward to your reply in due course.

Yours Sincerely,

William A. Lynch

❝ I cherish my own freedom dearly but I care even more for your freedom... Your freedom and mine cannot be separated. I will return.❞

I purchased an Augmented Paper device in Florida December 2017 I take notes every day (in my work) and thought it would be ideal. Since returning to UK it has NEVER worked It was sent back to Germany 5 January and replaced. 13 February. It is Still not working. I have never been able to use it. I wish to return it and have a credit. It is not fit for the purpose for which it was purchased by me. Mont Blanc (Germany) are refusing to credit it. I have written a report on the matter. I wish to bring it to attention of CEO N Baretzki but cannot find an e mail address for him. Can you help please? I have MANY Mont Blanc products which I cherish. I am extremely disappointed in this augmented paper device and the response from MB..
