This is my first venture into the Waterman brand and I will say I am impressed. This pen's finish is a rich amber lacquer speckled with brown and is quite lovely to look at.
The pen itself has a nice shape and a decent heft at 33g which I prefer. The finish is beautiful with the lacquer in amber and the gold accents but the real treat is when the pen is uncapped.
The Carene is a nice dependable writer that puts out a line that leans towards the wet side but not by much. I would not say it is not dry at all nor is it a gusher.
My only complaint is that for the price, it is a cartridge/converter pen. Rather than coming with 1 or 2 cartridges, it comes in a 6 pack of Serenity Blue.
- Dependable writer
- Gorgeous Amber lacquer finish
- 18kt gold inlaid nib
- Weighs 33g
- Cartridge/Converter filler for the price
