Waterman pens – a mark of quality
Waterman pens say it all – stylish, functional, chic and practical, yet still a must-have accessory. Whether you choose Waterman fountain pens or Waterman ink pens you can be sure that your choice is a good one. Even in these electronic days of PCs, PDAs and mobile phones, Waterman ink pens are still an essential handbag or briefcase element.
History of Waterman pens
In 1883, insurance broker Lewis Waterman had bought a new fountain pen in preparation for signing an important new contract. The pen refused to work and a competing broker jumped in and sealed the deal instead. And that was the driving force behind Waterman pens, Waterman fountain pens and Waterman ink pens. Determined never to suffer a similar fate again, Waterman began to make the now world-renowned Waterman pens in his brother’s workshop. Lewis Waterman used the capillarity principle which allowed air to induce a steady and even flow of ink. He christened his brand new Waterman pen "the Regular," decorated it with wood accents, and obtained a patent for it in 1884. By 1899 Lewis Waterman had opened a Montreal factory offering a variety of Waterman pen designs. The Treaty of Versailles was signed using a solid gold Waterman pen, a far cry from the day Lewis Waterman lost his important contract due to a leaky fountain pen.
What does a Waterman fountain pen say about you?
A Waterman fountain pen says you’re a man or woman of style. A Waterman fountain pen says you’re in control, not a follower, but a leader. A Waterman fountain pen such as the Hemisphere Mars for example, presents a solid, no-nonsense, professional business appearance, ideal for brandishing around boardrooms to make a point! Or if you want to offer a slightly more individual image, how about the Hemisphere metallic blue Waterman fountain pen?

These innovative Waterman pens are far more than just writing instruments. Of all the Waterman ink pens available, these fashionable and glamorous accessories both surprise and charm.

A Waterman fountain pen says as much about you as your clothes or shoes.

Waterman Paris fountain pen company is celebrating its anniversary with the introduction of a new limited edition pen named the Edson 125 ans.
It was created to mark the 125th anniversary of Lewis Edson Waterman founding the company in 1883, the year when he is also said to have invented the world's first fountain pen.
The nib of the €1850 (£1639) pen is solid 18-carat gold which has been plated in rhodium to increase fluidity and the pen itself is made of palladium with art-deco, blue lacquered designs along the body.
"Designed at Waterman's Saint Herblain centre in France and assembled with supreme artistry, Edson 125 ans blends timeless luxury and bold modernity," Waterman Paris said.
"Just 1883 pieces, each one etched with a distinct number on the side of the clip in homage to 125 years of original creation".
The pen is also presented in a solid wood, blue lacquered box, lined in fabric and hot stamped with a golden logo.
