Waterman Carene Contemporary Black and Gunmetal

The Waterman Carene Contemporary Black and Gunmetal fountain pen with rhodium trim adds an element of modernity to this series with its sleek color combination and engraved criss-cross design on the cap. The Carene Contemporary Black and Gunmetal maintains the same unique shape as the other Carene pens, with its notable beveled end cap. Reflective gunmetal on the cap adds to the illusion of movement, as if the pen itself is a flying bullet.

Carène means "hull" in French, and the Waterman Carene fountain pen sports an elegantly streamlined design that suggests the sleek lines of a racing yacht. The smooth-writing 18k inlaid nib adds to the appeal of these writing instruments, which also offer excellent value for the price.



The Carene Contemporary Black and Gunmetal with rhodium trim can be filled using international size ink cartridges, such as the Pelikan and J. Herbin cartridges we carry, or can be filled with any bottled fountain pen ink using the included converter.

Take a look at the barrel detail. The combination of metal cap with an etched criss cross design and solid lacquer body provides visual and textural contrasts. Rhodium trim becomes a bridge between the two.

The 18k solid gold rhodium-plated inlaid nib is known for its smooth writing characteristics, and is imprinted with the Waterman trademark.

These 18k nibs are well-suited to customizations such as Cursive Italic and Left Oblique.

Each pen is packaged in an attractive Waterman gift box.
