Waterman Havana belonging to USG.jpeg


I have copied this photo from @USG, in order to compare it to a photo that I have taken of my own ‘vintage’ bottle of Waterman Havana.

I bought my bottle some time between 1999 and 2004 (I strongly suspect that the purchase date was nearer 2004, but cannot remember for certain).


I perceive my Havana as being so red that I regard its colour as ‘maroon’, rather than ‘brown’.

That said, in this photo of the Havana owned by USG, the writing does look ‘brown’ to me.

This makes me wonder whether Waterman changed the formulation of Havana some time in the late 1990s.
