Condition and information:
This is the first Waterman Hemisphere series model, made in the early 1990s. This model was succeeded by the HII model, which is nearly identical in form factor but has larger trimmings, more similar to the Waterman Expert.
These are perfect everyday Waterman pens, very easy to use, maintain, and clean, trouble-free fountain pen meant to be used daily, and a simple and elegant ballpoint pen.
The pens feature a modern design with traditional Waterman lines and the famous Waterman clip with a slit design. Both pens are made out of thick beautifully radially brushed stainless steel, very tough, difficult to scratch, or dent even if dropped. Due to the nice brushed surface, the pens give out nice reflections, and the steel finish does not show fingerprints. The cap band of the fountain pen and the midsection band of the ballpoint pen feature nice crisp engravings that read “Waterman” and “France”.
The fountain pen comes with a very smooth stainless steel F fine size nib, it is a constant precise writer with a consistent smooth ink-flow, no mess on the paper. The best part of this Waterman pen is that it uses standard international size cartridges or a converter, one new cartridge is included with the pen. This means that the user can use a variety of cartridges from a variety of manufacturers instead of being locked to particular manufacturer cartridges or converters.
The ballpoint pen features a smooth mid-body twist on/off mechanism which is very responsive and convenient to use. It uses standard Waterman refills and we will include a new refill in black color so the pen can be used right away. The pen represents a true pleasure to write with as it simply glides on any paper providing for a smooth effortless writing experience.
Due to their substantial weight, the pens are very well balanced with a great feel in the hand.
The pens come packed in a special Waterman presentation gift box together with a UV keychain which presumably can be used for checking the authenticity of paper notes. All in all great, really well-thought sturdy everyday pens that you can really rely on for your daily writing sessions offering the perfect smooth writing experience.
The set comes in NOS condition, with no signs of use, no dings, no scratches, perfect cosmetic and functional condition in its original presentation box.
