This is a beautiful deep green lacquer over a metal core Waterman Exception fountain pen with rhodium plated trim. It is in beautiful condition and looks as if it may have never actually been used. It is presented here in its original box. The pen has a very unusual square cross-section with the corners just rounded enough to make for a comfortable hold whilst writing. The Exception is a high-quality model and one of the better current Waterman offerings. The cap has a circular top button with the Waterman "W" logo imprinted in black. The pocket clip is a robust design with the signature Waterman pierced slit in the centre of the stem. The cap lip has a flush-fitting rhodium plated band. This sits adjacent to the band at the top of the barrel, which is engraved "Waterman" and "Paris". The end of the barrel has a square rhodium plated "button" with a flat end. The cap pulls off to reveal a black finger grip and a rhodium plated point. The finger grip has a square cross-section adjacent to the barrel, and this slowly transforms into a circular cross-section at the point. The section unscrews to allow the refill to be changed. It will accept a standard Waterman rollerball refill. The one currently fitted to the pen is still in good working condition. There is a spare refill in the box beneath the pad. The original blue leatherette covered box is also in excellent condition. The interior is white, and below the pad is the aforementioned refill, along with the instruction/warranty booklet.
