Waterman Elegance Black Silver

Elegance is synonymous with grace and style, and the Waterman Elegance Black Silver fountain pen is a name truly befitting its moniker. Introduced in 2009 and modeled after the earlier Safety line of Waterman pens from the early 1900s, the Elegance Black Silver utilizes rounded lines and cylindrical shapes to achieve a sophisticated shape. Sleek rhodium trim lends a contemporary touch to the black lacquer.

The Elegance series has now been discontinued by Waterman - we have just a very small number of these Black Silver pens remaining in stock, after which no more will be available.

Introduced in 2009 and designed by art director Beatrice Fontana, the Waterman Elegance is the epitome of sophistication. The Elegance is a modern take on the Waterman Safety line from the early 1900s. With this contemporary interpretation, Waterman has maintained the cylindrical shape, shortened cap, and intricate metal details of the vintage classic while adding even more luxury for the 21st century.

The Elegance Black Silver is a solid pen, a mid-size pen that will fit comfortably in most hands. The easily removable clutch cap with its slim rhodium-plated clip makes this pen simple to use on the go, and the cap itself is relatively small compared to the total length of the fountain pen.

The Elegance Black Silver 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.

Small rectangles etched with alternating horizontal and vertical lines form a checkered pattern on the wide rhodium-plated band. Paired with the engraved "Waterman Paris" logo, this geometric pattern adds a contrasting element of lines and angles. The rhodium plating wrapped around the bottom of the barrel finishes in a simple flat cap end, almost like a subtle punctuation mark.

The Waterman Elegance Black Silver fountain pen is available with your choice of 18k solid gold rhodium-plated nib. Notice the engraved Waterman "W" logo on the nib.

These 18k nibs are well-suited to customizations such as Cursive Italic and Left Oblique - see our nib customizations page for more information.

Each pen is packaged in an attractive Waterman gift box.
