Pre-Owned Pens: Waterman Carene

Pre-Owned Pens: 5858 Waterman Carene
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Waaaay too overlooked are Waterman Carene ballpoint pens. Waterman doesn't seem to have the same luxury cache as Montblanc, but the Waterman Carene ballpoint pen feel like writing with Cadillac compared to the Honda Civic of a Classique. The difference is in the weight. A Waterman Carene is made with a heavier brass-barrel construction that helps the pen glide along with some momentum as you write. Very smooth. This model is in the "amber shimmer" design, and it comes with its original box (just slightly scuffed) and papers. It also comes with a red-ink refill. 13.8cm.
