Visconti Opera Master Fountain Pen - Polynesia
The Visconti Opera Master Limited Edition Polynesia features a stunning semi-translucent turquoise, white, cream and brown swirling resin, accented by palladium trim. The Opera Master Polynesia is limited to 888 fountain pens, and each one is each individually numbered. It uses an oversized 18kt white gold nib, closes via the hook safe lock, and fills via the double reservoir power filler.
The Opera Master Polynesia transports the collector to the exotic Polynesian islands famous for its dazzling beaches, serene blue seas, and coral reefs shimmering in clear waters. This is an exceptional fountain pen featuring the many patented innovations favored and sought out by Visconti collectors:
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 10 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.
Semi- transparent demonstrator: The Polynesia features a semi-transparent resin cap and body with beautiful swirls of blues, white, cream, and brown inspired by the paradise islands' luminous blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, swaying palm trees, and powdery beaches.
After more than 30 years of continuous research to perfect the design and engineering of writing instruments, Visconti proudly announces a new in-house nib completely designed and created by the Visconti team. This means the production of the entire nib unit: the feed, the nib housing and the nib itself, which will allow Visconti to fully customize and complete the in-house production of every Visconti pen. This innovation brings to the collector a complete 'Made in Florence' writing experience. The new buttery smooth nibs will be launched in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad and Stub sizes.
But wait, there’s more:
The Opera Master Polynesia will also be the first collection to be presented in the new Visconti packaging featuring the classic 'V' logo in luxurious silver and platinum colors creating a unique watermark design around the exterior of the box. The interior features a soft gray fabric and has a pull out drawer to store warranty information and extra refills. Visconti is also excited to announce that in continuation with their efforts to create environmentally friendly products, the new packaging is plastic free and recyclable.
In 1998, Visconti applied for the Italian patent for its Double Reservoir Power Filler, a unique filling system that allows a massive ink capacity and safe usage during air flights. Similar in operation to vacuum-filling pens (such as the larger Visconti Homo Sapiens), the Opera Master fills with a 3.4ml ink capacity in the sealed ink reservoir. Unique to this design, there is a second reservoir in between the vacuum seal and the pen’s feed that holds about 0.6ml, the size of a typical standard international short cartridge. Effectively, what you end up with here is the ink equivalent of a standard international cartridge that you can use to write (without having to unscrew the filler knob like you do with most other vacuum-fillers), with the contents of an entire pack of cartridges (or the entire Visconti Traveling Inkwell!) in the back of your pen.
