Visconti Opera Master Antartica is inspired by the mysterious ice deserts of Antarctica recreating the cold landscapes of this mysterious land. A fountain pen with semi-transparent white and blue acrylic resin that shows the vast expanses of ice and water that characterise Antarctica.
Cap features "Hook Safe Lock" system that is easy to use and safe. But the most important feature is the Visconti's patent Double Reservoir Power Filler that allows a great ink capacity and safe usage in extreme conditions (for example on air flights).
This particular filling mechanism works like a vacuum filler but when you fill ink and close the piston knob, the ink inside is divided in two parts. The first one, smaller, that you use while writing and the second one, bigger, that fills the first when you need. Just unscrew the piston knob with the nib up and rotate the pen to charge the first tank. This system is extremely safe on flights where changes of pressure usually cause leaks and spillage.
Visconti Opera Master Antartica is equipped with a 18 KT gold nib made in-house in Florence so it is a 100% Made in Italy. Limited to 888 pieces worldwide.
