Visconti is celebrating their 25th anniversary this year by releasing some fountain pens in new color/material combinations.

Only 25 of each edition will be released worldwide.  Approximately 6 pieces of each will coming to the USA.

The Divine Proportion 25th Anniversary Edition is the same as before with the exception it uses twice as much sterling Silver as the original limited edition.  (this is a design upgrade to keep the silver from pulling out). MSRP $3250.

The Carbon Dream 25th Anniversary Edition we already know about. MSRP $2850.

Is anyone else as disappointed as I am that Visconti isn’t releasing an actual new model for their 25th Anniversary?

    Yes, actually very disappointed. I have been waiting so patiently and this is not at all what I expected. Not that they aren’t lovely pens, but we already KNOW they are lovely pens. Putting a “25” on end cap just isn’t enough. I was hoping my #30 (of my collection) Visconti would be the magic “25th anniversary pen” but I will move on to other things now. Appreciate the list, though, very much.

    Nice but . . . I expected more.

    Any word on them releasing more of the Van Gogh pens individually? I really like them but buying them one at a time is better than shelling out the big chunk at once.

    I thought they could have added a 25th logo on all their pens this year not just a few.
    While I like the psychedelic vomit style of the barrels of the VanGoghs adding a gold band or clip isn’t much of a differentiation & shouldn’t it be reserved for the 50th anyway. The Dali is available with gold trim on a regular pen! Maybe the could use special cap gems for the 25th such as Tsavorite, Green Garnet.
    Seems odd they produce special editions at the drop of a hat look at the recent Chatterley LE Cosmopolitans* but not much effort for their own anniversary…..are the economic woes in Europe hitting that hard.
