Visconti - Speed Boat Chronograph & Homo Sapiens London Fog Pen

Visconti’s customers can now experience the Visconti lifestyle 360 degrees with its pens and coordinated watches and cufflinks. For example, today we introduce two matching pairs: Speed Boat Watch and matching Homo Sapiens London Fog fountain pen. Visconti Speed Boat Chronograph is a limited edition watch produced in only 250 pieces worldwide.
Homo Sapiens fountain pen, unveiled back in 2011, was one of the brand’s most important success as it featured most of Visconti's key traits: innovative materials, a complex and efficient technical build and a tribute to world's past, in this case a prehistoric era. The "London Fog" iteration refers to post Industrial Revolution London. The translucent body features a celluloid swirl that travels throughout the whole pen's body, recalling London's typical fog. Each pen is truly unique as the production process involves lots of handcraft activity.
The Homo Sapiens London Fog was produced in 888 pens worldwide. It sports a patented Double Reservoir Power Filler charging system and the 23kt Palladium Dreamtouch Nib, for a flawless and pleasant writing experience. The pen comes both in fountain pen and in rollerball pen versions.
