More on Waterman Man 100 Patrician

 

The Man 100 Patrician was produced by Waterman in 1993-1995 in three striking colours – cardinal red, green and blue. Nineteen layers of varnish and lacquer ensure its brilliance and depth. The cap is decorated with a pierced band, elegantly protecting this masterpiece of the Art Deco style. Highlighted with gold-plated trim, it is adorned with a mark recalling the original version of the 30s.

Lucky (Wing Sung) 215

 

Lucky was another brand name used by Wing Sung Pen of China. It was a premium brand used mainly for export purposes. If a pen was produced under both the Lucky brand and Wing Sung brand, the Lucky one was normally of better quality due to stricter quality control. Wing Sung Pen ceased production in 1999.

I have a Lucky 215 with 12kt Triumph nib and transparent section.  It was produced in 1980s and is regarded as one of the better pens produced by Wing Sung Pen. I have its nib custom ground to fine italic.

Hero 892 Seashells

 

Hero 892 Seashells is a beautiful fountain pen manufactured by Hero Pen of China. It was produced in the late 1990s and has since been discontinued.


Cut linings of mother-of-pearl, abalone and other seashells are inlaid into the surface of the lacquered barrel and cap. They are randomly distributed so each pen is different from others. They show different colours under different lighting conditions. It is simply magnificent.

The pen has two versions: gold accents and chrome accents. The gold accents version is normally fitted with a 12k gold nib. The chrome accents version is fitted with a 12k gold nib or an unplated steel nib. The nib is semi-hooded.


The nib, feed and pump(converter) of Hero 892 Seashells are interchangeable with those of Parker 45.


Here are some pictures of the pen with chrome accents:
