Waterman Carène Contemporary Photos?
Posted 20 November 2011 - 23:02
I am planning to buy a Waterman Carene Contemporary (Gunmetal).
Usually things look very different on advertising photos. Can someone post some selfmade photos of a Waterman Carene Contemporary (Gunmetal)?
This is the expected look from advertising photos:
I'm especially interested in the "real" colour. Does it look more brown as on the second photo or more like plain metal as on the first?

The new PVD coating...magnetron sputtering. Doesn't it just roll off the tongue. Isn't that a nice pen, "yes it's been magnetron sputtered"
I looked at the White and Gunmetal and seem to recall it was more a dark silver/grey, not bronzy as per your second picture. But that was many months ago and different eyes see different colours. It also felt very light compared to earlier models. At £220 I would rather seek out earlier Deluxe's at 1/3 of that cost.
This sellers pics give a fairly true likeness to what I recall.
