Just wanted to share some news that I got hold of. New Visconti FPs being released just before the Christmas season .
I know the information here is limited and sometimes maybe incorrect, but please note that I know this from a buyer's/user's perspective - which is always limited!
The pens are expected end of the month.
First up is the Caput Mundi - this is how I first came to know about it (hence the picture), but it is now named Red Wine.
The pen will come in 3 trims - Bronze, Silver and Black. This is another iteration of the Homo Sapiens line and one that it is quite attractive IMHO.
There will be: 50 of the Bronze, 28 of the Silver and 28 of the Black limited worldwide
The Bronze will be sold by Italian (Rome) retailers (Stefano from Stilograph Corsanni will have about 20 - http://www.stilographcorsani.com/en/
The Silver and Black will be sold as a special edition by Bryant at Chaterley Luxuries - https://chatterleyluxuries.com/ - I know the picture doesn't show the one with the blackout trim, but Bryant is expecting the pens to arrive this week!
Next one (no pics of these one) is a "re-release" of the opera Crystal With black trims - to be called demo midnight (just black, I was wrong when I mentioned silver in when I first did this post ).I would estimate until there are more pictures available that it will be very similar to this one Opera Crystal Dark Age, but with palladium nibs - and no mosquito! Limited to 38 pens worldwide
Price point for all these pens (at least Bryant's ) will be around the $500 - $600 range - again i'm just a visconti user so until they are up for grabs we wont know the actual value for sure.
All pens will be 23Kt palladium in all the usual sizes with the black trim pens having all black 23Kt palladium
Hope this is of good use to someone!
