The golden mean (1.618) or phi ratio was used to develop the pen and including the length of the celluloid cap and barrel, the five-sided star shape of the inside, and the golden spiral or Nautilus barrel. The pen is trimmed in sterling silver and has a two-tone, 18K nib and a "Push & Pull" filling system. There is a riddle inside the pen, five numbers hidden inside the cap, clip, body and barrel of the pen. If you solve the riddle you win a golden Visconti inkwell. The pen is limited to 1,618 pieces in sterling silver and sells for $1290. There are also 618 gold-trimmed pens available.
