Visconti launches a collection of pens devoted to erotic art. Each pen concealing two hidden secrets and inspired by the pocket watch.

Visconti has created a pen which, just like a pocket watch, has a barrel divided into two sections that allows access to its mechanical parts and conceals an erotic painting on the inside.
Shunga, a Sino-Japanese form of erotic art dating from the 17th to the 19th centuries, were fully-fledged erotic instruction manuals intended for young wives as a form of sex education, but also for troops setting out for war.
