My Tribute To Waterman Carene Deluxe


Mitinder

Recommended Posts

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.

I'd like to inform you that the Caréne is made of metal, not resin. Nevertheless, it's a really pretty pen! Thanks for sharing :)

 

EDIT: Oops, didn't realize how old this post was. Sorry for the necro.

Actually, the Carene Deluxe does have a resin body and section with the two-tone gold and silver cap. Standard Carene models are lacquered metal. I don't have a standard Carene, but I do have the Deluxe which is the same as reviewed here. Excellent writer with a slightly wet fine nib. Excellent balance and extremely comfortable to use. I highly recommend this pen.

And the barrel of my Prussian Blue Caréne Deluxe is lacquer over brass over plastic, with an incised vermeil cap.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
