Visconti's latest offering is truly spectacular. The Watermark is a pen that demonstrates one of Visconti's greatest skills, the artisanal craftsmanship of the cut out filigree, an ability to achieve intricate details with absolute precision. Visconti began crafting filigrees back in 1993 with the launch of the Visconti Uffizi and over the years refined and improved the technique with pens like the Skeleton or the Ripple. To create a new design requires many months of work. This time the decision was made to create a new design that recalls the Visconti logo like a paper filigree. The logo is repeated along the body and cap of the pen, and given the name 'Watermark'. The design of the pen identifies strongly with the Visconti brand, much like a watermark is an identifying pattern in paper. The filigree is cut out from a solid tube of sterling silver and requires over 20 manual operations to reach the final status.
The Watermark demonstrator is available in rollerball or fountain pen and limited to 888 pieces. The fountain features the patented Visconti Double Reservoir Power Filler, a unique filling system that allows a greater ink capacity and safe usage during air flights. The fountain is further enhanced with Visconti's large, 23kt Palladium Dreamtouch nib.
