A beautiful and large top quality Waterman ballpoint pen in the very attractive deep blue lacquered finish. The L'Etalon was a very upmarket pen when it was launched, and the quality is certainly still there today. The pen has an all-metal construction with gold plated trim and a beautiful glossy deep blue lacquer finish to the barrel and cap. It is in excellent condition with no damage noted on this item at all. The cap has a gold plated band at the top which holds on the pierced pocket clip which is very much a Waterman trademark. The gold plated cap lip band has a PARIS imprint around the back and a hexagonal cutout at the front with the blue lacquer infill. The barrel has a gold plated end piece, and the band at the forward end has the rest of the imprint engraved around it. This ballpoint pen accepts a standard Waterman ballpoint refill. It is a retractable ballpoint that works by twisting the cap.
I have fully serviced this pen. It works perfectly.
