Visconti Carbon Dream Fountain Pen
There was the blue, black, solid gold and Chatterley Pens Ripples.
Visconti then came out with the carbon fiber ripple. This pen was released for their 25th anniversary. Only 25 pens were made. This one was a special one made with the number 0/25.
Named the Carbon Dream 25th anniversary.
Numbered to 25 pens worldwide.
The Carbon Fiber Overlay is made by the same people and the same factory that make the Carbon Fiber for Bugatti as well as other Italian Sports cars. The Carbon Fiber is in sheets and has to be kept frozen until it takes its final shape and then finished. This is the first time Carbon Fiber has been used in an cut out overlay for pen.
Carbon Dream represents a milestone in carbon fibre workmanship, for the first time in pen history fine carbon weaving has been cut and used as a detailed overlay for a pen. Visconti has crafted the carbon fibre into the characteristic design of the Ripple, a Visconti manufacturing icon. The transparent resin adds deepness to the pen and allows us to catch a glimpse of the famous mechanism of the Double Reservoir Power Filler.
Whilst the overlay is made from Carbon Fibre, all trims are made from titanium and PDV Plated. Thus this unique demonstrator pen joins two technological materials par excellence.
