The iconic Visconti Opera Master returns to the collection in a version inspired by the mysterious ice deserts of Antarctica.
The vast extents of ice and water that characterize Antarctica present us with a beautiful contract of colors between white and light blue. The Opera Master Antarctica recreates the cold landscapes of this unknown land by combining colors with the transparency of demonstrator pens, giving the illusion of an object frozen to the touch.
This fountain pen features a semi-transparent resin cap and body with beautiful swirls of blue and white inspired by the frozen tundra of Antarctica. The beloved Ponte Vecchio bridge clip features a bright blue enamel to accent the Visconti name.
This Visconti Opera Master Antarctica fountain pen is limited to only 888, each individually numbered. It uses an oversized 18kt white gold nib made in-house, closes via the 'hook safe lock', and fills via the double reservoir power filler.
'Double Reservoir' Power Filler: A vacuum filling system that is easy to use and has considerable benefits. Patented in 1998, this is arguably the most advanced filling system ever developed in fountain pen history. The user is able to fill the pen with the equivalent of multiple cartridges of ink, and thanks to the two reservoirs, prevents ink from leaking during air travel.
'Hook Safe Lock': This revolutionary closing system is very satisfying to operate and was created to lock the pen body into the cap to prevent the possibility of the pen accidentally unscrewing and leaking inside a pocket or bag.
We do our best to photograph the pens to show how they will appear in person, but due to the nature of the material there will be some variation in the pattern seen here. This adds an element of uniqueness to the pen, with no two patterns being exactly the same.
