Waterman Expert Rollerball
I love this pen!
This pen is just stunning, and the pictures are great but I don't think even the best pictures can do this pen justice.
It is very high quality. I own several Mont Blanc pens, Lamy, and other high end pens as well, and this one feels more high quality than any of them to me.
The refills are much better than Mont Blanc rollerball refills, but that's not saying much. They're a bit better than the Lamy rollerball refills as well for my liking. Actually, they are probably the best rollerball refills I've found. But rollerballs tend to write very strongly for a short time and then seem to lighten up a bit, which I find frustrating.
So I was looking for a nice pen to be able to hack and replace the rollerball with a gel refill I have come to love, the Pentel Energel .7mm.
This Waterman is the perfect pen for it and by just trimming a little bit off the end of my Pentel refills I have a pen that looks, writes, and feels like a dream! At long last I have found what is for me "the perfect writing solution"!

An Elegant and Modern Waterman Pen
This is an Elegant and Modern interpretation of the Waterman Expert. I had purchased this rollerball pen in early fall 2011 to use with a junior Circa Jacket in Saddle that I ordered at the same time. I have enjoyed writing with this pen ever since. The palladium trim adds an elegant accent to the contemporary matte black finish, and the two attributes together afford an elegant writing instrument. The Expert shape fits comfortably in-hand, and the pen itself offers a beautifully balanced, silky smooth writing experience.
