The stainless steel nib section for Waterman Expert fountain pens.
Luxurious, sophisticated and with a certain je ne sais quoi, Waterman pens are recognised worldwide for their beautifully crafted elegance.
There’s a high-end Parisian style to Waterman’s impressive designs, which are now all meticulously hand assembled and tested in the Saint-Herblain factory in France. However, the company actually began life in New York in 1884, when Lewis Edson Waterman developed his ‘three-fissure feed’, cementing the brand as one of the original fountain pen big names. Today, precious metals and luxurious lacquers and finishes decorate Waterman pens, and several of the brand’s most covetable designs are world-renowned for their beauty. But it’s not just style over substance – Waterman pens are prized for their quality, smooth writing style and reliability.
From famous desks – former French President Francois Mitterand was rarely seen without his Waterman, and Stephen King has called them ‘the world’s finest word processor’ – to yours, there are a wide variety of shapes and finishes to choose from, across fountain pens, rollerballs, ballpoints and mechanical pencils. Whether you go for a fluid-curved Carène or a slimline Hémisphère, your writing will always have a little French flair with a Waterman.
