Waterman Carene Essential Silver

Inspired by the dynamic spirit of the ocean, Waterman's Carene fountain pens employ fluid lines and intricate etching to simulate the motion of waves. The Waterman Carene Silver fountain pen with rhodium trim makes you feel as if you are standing amidst the waves, with the engraved pattern filling both cap and barrel of this pen. Punctuated only by the deep black lacquer on the section, the silver ebbs and flows in this stunning Waterman.

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.

This is a mid-size pen that will be a comfortable fit for most users. Though the Carene Essential Silver looks like it might be heavy with its elegant silver finish, it is actually quite light and seems to almost float in the hand.

The Carene Essential Silver 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 closer look at the engraved wave pattern. Just as you can get lost in the repetitive push and pull of the tides of the sea, you can become almost hypnotized by the reflections of the rhodium-plated metal. The silver adds a sleek and modern touch.


The 18k solid 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.
