It should have been called the Waterman Generation as that's often Waterman put's out a new model. Correct me if I'm wrong the last model was the perspective.

Has anyone tried one of these? I'm just curious. They've just popped up on my local pen shop's website for 90 CDN - quite a high price for a pen which seems to be made of parts from existing models...

 

That Eiffel Tower on the nib makes it look like a cheezy travel souvenir.

That's a curiously mismatched juxtaposition of finishes. The section with the odd ribbing really doesn't match the rest of the pen.

Anything on these yet? I haven’t gotten anything as of this week. You would think if they were being released, they’d be showing up in the pre Black Friday hype.

eBay has some, M nib only, all colours available, 70 plus 10 posting and packaging. Edit: Amazon too.

Yes, £52 in the UK.

 

A few years ago I recall Monty in New York listing Philepert pens. The attached pictures to the listings was of an Expert cross Phileas section on an Phileas barrel.

Ugh. Apart from the clip, those look like bottom end of the market Parkers. Sad to see a great French brand going down the pan.

I see it as a positive signal instead.

Of course I wish the pen was oriented toward the lower end of the market, to compete with the more economical German pens (Safari, Sport), but that's just me.

I suppose you have to be doing something to make money. If your imagination is dry, this is the sort of thing that comes forth. I think for that money they might have actually had a dream.

Is the threading the same on the Expert and Philias?

If anyone has had a chance to get their hands on one, how does it write?

 

I have a Carene and an Exception and both are excellent top tier writers out of the box. I hope these match up to the reputation. I presume the fit, finish and craftsmanship are top tier too.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
