I have a Waterman ballpoint and case given to me in the 1970’s. I ask for help in identifying the model and name they assigned to it. I do not see any comparable pens on various websites due to the 2 rings on the bottom portion of the barrel and its tapered curve. The cap snaps on vs. screw on. The widest part of the barrel is 14mm. I cannot find any model number or serial number on it. The top of the cap is at an angle and has the W logo imprinted on it. Anyone have any ideas? See photos please.

All Expert series have the barrel form. The most obvious change is the profile of the gold plated rings.
Series 1 = very convex.
Series 2 = Flat
Series 3 = Flat and one on the cap is wider. Additional and major change being they have stainless steel nibs, fancy caps and different colour.

Waterman's website says the Expert was released in 1992.

Thanks ballboy, it was given to me between 1977 -1979 at a Sunbeam Corp meeting in Oakbrook IL.

Breathe. Take one step at a time. Don't sweat the small stuff. You're not getting older, you are only moving through time. Be calm and positive.

Good news indeed.
We are all here to assist one another when and where we can.
At least now I have a date for that brochure.
I am still baffled as to why the Waterman web shows a pair of vintage Lady pens at 1987. Even though I have informed them of the error....many times.
