The Visconti Limited Edition Opera Master Oceanic features a gorgeous swirling translucent blue resin, complemented by rose gold trim. This Opera Master Oceanic is limited to only 88 total fountain pens, each individually numbered. It uses an oversized 18kt rose gold nib, closes via the 'hook safe lock', and fills via the double reservoir power filler. Visconti has recently updated their branding and font used on their clips. During this transition, you may receive a pen with a slightly different font then shown here.
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.
You can also customize this pen with the magnetized MyPen System. We offer natural stones that you can swap into the finial in place of the Visconti logo coin.
