Waterman Exception Night and Day Platinum Stripe

The Waterman Exception Night and Day Platinum Stripe Fountain pen brings new meaning to being called "square." Black like the night sky fills two sides of this quadrangular fountain pen, while panels of etched platinum stripes shed some light on the other two sides. This pen has a square cross section on both the cap and barrel. The fit and finish of this modern-looking fountain pen are impeccable.

Waterman has discontinued the Exception Night and Day series - we are limited to remaining stock on hand, after which no more will be available.

An exception is something that does not follow a rule, and Waterman's new Exception line of fountain pens breaks free of all conventions. With its quadrangular body that tapers into a rounded shape at the section for easier use, the Exception manages to be both visually unique and fully functional at the same time. This is the slightly larger cousin of the Waterman Exception Slim.

The Exception a surprisingly well-balanced pen.

Notice the stunning design details on the barrel. Note the panel of platinum stripes that runs along the cap and barrel of two sides. These lines complement the geometric configurations prominent in the pen, and the platinum provides a stunning contrast to the surrounding jet black lacquer.

Notice the geometric design of the open rhodium clip, a design feature that Waterman has used since the 1960s, which complements the quadrangular shape of the pen.

Both ends are square in shape, although the cap end has the Waterman "W" intricately imprinted into the tassie.

This pen uses Waterman's cartridge-converter system, which allows it to be filled using any bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter. It can also use Waterman brand cartridges.

The cap pushes and pulls on and off, making this fountain pen a snap for quick access to a wet ink line.

The black gripping section of the Exception is contoured so that it matches the square shape of the barrel at its base, then tapers towards the nib. Attention to ergonomic detail is a hallmark of the contemporary Waterman brand.

This pen is provided standard with your choice of 18k solid gold rhodium-plated nib.

Waterman 18k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique - see our nib customizations page for more information.
