Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone can give me a bit more information about a pen that I bought off eBay. I bought it for my boyfriend's birthday in a couple of weeks - as a bibliophile myself and he a Waterman collector, this seemed like the perfect gift for me to give him. However, I know nothing about it other than what the eBay description said. 

 

The eBay listing said the seller was selling the pen on behalf of a friend. This friend worked in the film industry and had been given the pen - he apparently couldn't remember who by or remember who had signed it. Does anyone recognise these signatures? - a long shot I know!

 

I was mainly hoping someone could answer a couple of questions I have since I can't find anything on Google! 

 

What year(s) were these designs produced? Are they limited editions? How many were made?

I believe that this pen was a version of the Reflex. and is entitled "From the Earth to the Moon/Five weeks in a Balloon" and I believe that is a 1990s pen.

I am sure that others will come forward with a much more detailed explanation. My knowledge of Waterman pens is rather limited but I hope this is of some help.

That is a Reflex.  I love the fun pens Waterman made.

Indeed, as Pajaro says, a fun pen. Nice.
