Visconti is delighted to announce the launch of the new Gilded Rose, a spectacular new addition to the award winning Watermark collection and exclusive to the USA. The Watermark is a pen that demonstrates one of Visconti's greatest skills, the artisanal craftsmanship of the cut out filigree, and the ability to achieve intricate details with absolute precision. The Watermark replicates the Visconti logo throughout the pens cap and body like a paper filigree, hence 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 for the Gilded Rose is cut out from a solid tube of sterling silver that requires over 20 manual operations to reach the final base of the design. The Gilded Rose overlay is plated in gold vermeil and then combined with a deep red demonstrator resin.
The Watermark Gilded Rose is exclusive to the US market, available in fountain pen only, limited to just 40 pieces, and is presented in a special limited edition collectors gift box.
Each pen features the patented Double Reservoir Power Filler, perfect for watching your ink of choice flow through the translucent blue resin body. The double reservoir power filler allows for an exceptionally large fill of ink and makes the pens safe for air travel. Finally, the pen is enhanced with an 18k gold nib.
Unfortunately we won’t be able to honor any specific number requests.
