For all the Visconti pen lovers out there we have some new additions that we are sure you are going to love.
Say hello to two new Visconti Limited Editions, the Speakeasy and the Rainbow and a new collection that has given 2003 Opera pens a modern, metallic look, the Opera Metals collection.
If you long to own something truly unique then there is no greater feeling than purchasing your first Limited Edition Visconti pen, making both the Visconti Speakeasy and Rainbow fountain pens an investment that you can enjoy for many years.
The Speakeasy fountain pen is a red and blue coloured pen that gives homage to a period of rebellion and indulgence in 1920's America and Canada.
A speakeasy was a somewhat code word for a place that secretly sold alcohol during the prohibition period, so named because you were not to talk too quickly or act nervously in case you arose the suspicion of law officials or the government. Passwords were often needed for access into a speakeasy and alcohol was given code names such as 'horse liniment' and 'coffin varnish' to keep the activities going on inside a secret.
To incorporate this period of history into a pen, Visconti have crafted an attractive and classic looking pen but it also hides a secret of its own as within the pen is a hidden sanitised compartment which perfectly fits a shot of your favourite alcohol. A small window in the pen can also be revealed which lets the user know which alcohol is kept within the pen, a perfect gift idea for someone who loves luxury crafted pens and the odd tipple.
The Speakeasy pen comes in a Visconti gift box along with a red hip flask that compliments the pen and completes the gift set.
Our next Limited Edition is the Rainbow fountain pen, part of Visconti's "Millenium Arc" collection.
This stunning, iridescent pen showcases seven bright colours of the rainbow that all glisten in the light and are accompanied by a slick palladium trim.
This pen is equipped with Visconti's advanced crescent filling system, so to refill your ink level you simply press the crescent mechanism on the barrel and when it is released, ink will be sucked from the bottle into the inner sac of the pen and you are ready to write.
Both the crescent mechanism and the clip are arc shaped signifying the unity of the arc of history with the arc of time, this combined arc representing the continuity of time from the past to the future. A universal message that without our past there is no future as nothing can be created, nothing can be destroyed and what goes around comes back around.
Finally we have Visconti's Opera Metals collection, a 2015 twist on a 2003 design.
This new Opera design was created with the idea of combining the square and the circle which has resulted in a pen that is ergonomically shaped and perfect for comfortable writing. The unique squaring of the circle design of the pen is symbolic of the two laws which created and which preserve the universe: movement and stability.
Made from anodized coloured avional, a strong aluminium alloy used in aeronautics for lightweight but highly stressed parts, this Opera Metal collection is available in four sleek finishes. Monza - a black design highlighted with cool red trim, Roadster - black with a yellow trim, Silver Shadow - silver with graphite trim and Speedboat - silver with vibrant blue trim.
This new take on the iconic Opera collection is eye-catching, bold and perfect for the modern writer, available as both a Rollerball and a Fountain pen.
