The two demonstrator windows in this model appropriately enough serve a dual purpose - they both allow the user to monitor ink levels on an ongoing basis, as well as providing a view of Visconti's renowned Double Reservoir Power Fill system, which allows for the use of any bottled fountain pen ink. Each pen is hand assembled at the Visconti workshop in Florence.

The pen ships in a stylish presentation box which adds to its value and also makes this a highly appropriate choice as a very special gift item. We are an authorized Visconti dealer.
