We’re delighted to announce the launch of the new Visconti Rembrandt-S collection. The best-selling iconic Rembrandt has been extensively updated in four new contrasting color combinations and a newly designed ring. Visconti goes a step further and accentuates the colored resin with ruthenium trims and a new German-made Schmidt large-size nib.
Visconti’s Rembrandt collection was inspired by the famous 17th-century painter, Rembrandt Van Rijn. Rembrandt is famed for his ability to blend the elements of earthly and spiritual life into his works. Rembrandt mastered the use of color using the Chiaroscuro technique, an oil painting practice that uses strong contrasts between light and dark using shading to represent three-dimensional forms.
Visconti uses a unique mixture of variegated resin resulting in a swirl of light and dark colors reminiscent of Rembrandt's famous painting technique. Visconti has mastered this technique by selecting colorful resins with brush-like strokes that makes every pen unique, a true masterpiece in its own right. The central cast ring is finely engraved with motifs used by Rembrandt. The magnetic locking closure literally attracts the cap to the two-piece pen body. The collection launches in four new colors: Black, Blue, Orange and Bordeaux, each mixed with marbleized brush strokes of black resin.
The fountain pen features a completely new, large-size steel nib made by Schmidt Germany and is offered in fine, medium and broad. The ruthenium-trimmed nib looks impressive. Schmidt nibs write with a nice flow. Included is a converter for bottle ink. It takes standard international cartridges. A twist ballpoint also features the iconic Visconti clip, designed for durability. The two-piece rollerball writes like a liquid ink dream.
