The Waterman Expert fountain pen distinguishes itself from other, similar fountain pens by its stunning appearance and build. This pen benefits from the expertise of the Waterman brand, which was founded in the late 1800s by one of the industry’s most brilliant inventors. It boasts a cigar shape that makes its heavy weight easy to hold. Its stainless steel nib is of the highest quality, and the entire pen is designed to last for a lifetime, even when used heavily and daily. Waterman backs its design with a lengthy, three-year international warranty. In addition, its durable body and comfortable feel make it ideal for writing day in and day out.

The Expert also boasts an elegant appearance. The pen is designed with an eye-catching black lacquer finish that creates an exquisitely luxurious feel. The gold trim and simply decorated stainless steel nib complete the look. The pen is perfect for showing off on an executive’s desk, and makes an ideal gift. While beautiful, the nib does occasionally become blocked by ink, and does not function as reliably as could be hoped for. However, careful maintenance of the nib and proper storage can help to minimize scratchiness and dryness when using this beautiful pen.

The Expert is perfect for anyone wanting a fountain pen that will draw attention. Its bold shape, combined with the contrasting black lacquer and bright gold trim make it a pen that will stand out among any other fountain pen. This pen, therefore, makes a wonderful gift, a good choice for high-powered executives and anyone else looking to both show off and regularly use their fountain pen.
