Carene in French means “hull” of a boat. The streamlined design of Carene looks like the hull of a racing yacht.
The silver cap with engraved lines look like waves and the gold furniture complements both black resin and silver cap.
The barrel finial is beautiful hull shape in gold with a black resin jewel.
The 18k inlaid nib is a smooth writer.
The gold clip and capband with Waterman crest as well as Waterman engraved on enhance the ridged cap.
At 33.4 gms and 5.69” it is a mid sized nicely balanced pen.
The spirit of waves, the hull of a boat and inspiration from the ocean inspired me to pair it with J Herbin 1670 Blue Ocean Ink.
It is a luxury to be indulged in, in terms of visual, tactile and writing quality. I am absolutely besotted by my Carene.
