In 1900, Waterman First gained notoriety at the Exposition Universelle In Paris, where it was awarded the gold medal of excellence, the highest accolade available. This early recognition would see Waterman adopted by the French public as an iconic mark, a sentiment that continues today with all our fine pens being made in France.
Long affiliated with the Waterman brand, Paris has always been a source of inspiration. From its world-renowned museums to its prominent literary scene, our vision has always drawn from the city’s rich culture for the written word.
