The Waterman Carene or more correctly spelled Carène is one of the most iconic pens available by Waterman Paris. Carene is a fountain pen that has a beautiful unique and classic design. Both the cap and the body of pen are excellently crafted and designed however what really makes this pen stand out from the others is its unique nib design.
Carene DeLuxe is the high end model of the line featuring a metal cap that is plated with 925 sterling silver while other accessories are plated with 23 karat gold. The metal body is lacquered and polished. The pen itself is made in France and assembled by hand.
The nib is 18 karat gold.
Waterman use their own proprietary cartridge filling system which makes them incompatible with the standard European (also known as standard international) cartridges. The pen comes with a converter included in the package.
Standard nib grades are available in fine and medium. Waterman also offers EF, B, Stub, OF and OB but only on order which will take time to fulfill.
