The barrel and cap enameled over brass displays a lovely burgundy color with no wear, nicks, cracks, dings, dents, or scratching. The cap of this fountain pen displays the 23K gold-plated clip and cap banding that is stamped, "WATERMAN PARIS FRANCE". The cap and barrel are excellent with the cap always securing tightly when capped and posted. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. This Waterman L'Etalon was manufactured in Paris, France in the early to mid-1990s. This Waterman L'Etalon measures 5 1/2" inches in length capped and 6" inches posted.
This Waterman L'Etalon can use an Ink Converter or Cartridges. Currently, this fountain pen only has the Waterman Ink-Converter.
The NIB on this Waterman is 18K/750 Solid Gold with a Medium point and the PARIS imprint. The tipping measures .87mm when measured using a digital caliper. I have only dip tested this Waterman L'Etalon to perform a writing sample, which will write with a very smooth line of roughly .90mm when measured with digital calipers. The nib is very smooth - a great fountain pen to write with.
The Waterman L'Etalon comes with the original Factory Box, which is in excellent condition. The box also contains the original Waterman booklet/documentation and Service card.
This Fabulous Waterman L'Etalon Fountain Pen has a great feel in the hand and very well balanced. A very sophisticated pen that writes excellent with a smooth, medium nib. It is ready to write with or add to your writing arsenal collection. Again, it is in Mint Condition with all boxes and paperwork.
