The Florentine pen maker Visconti didn’t stray too far from its roots when it designed its first watch collection, which features dials flanked by bold swooping bridges that recall the clip design of its signature pen inspired by the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge. Ranging in price from $3,850 to $6,850, the striking watches have dual timers and date displays driven by Swiss-made movements; Visconti plans next year to introduce watches featuring proprietary movements. Three styles are currently available, ranging from a sporty matte-black-and-red design to a more refined brushed-stainless-steel version. (www.visconti.it)
