The item I received is simply not as pictured. I am highly suspect that what I received is not a genuine Waterman. Here are the reasons:
- Clip is completely different from what's pictured on Amazon or Waterman website
- When pen is closed, clip does not align with Waterman Paris engraving
- Waterman Paris engraving is not centered in lines, and engraving is kind of hard to read if the light isn't hitting it correctly (implying that it's not deep enough)
- "Waterman" and "Paris" fonts in the engraving are very similar, whereas an authentic Waterman would have a clear italicized serif font for Waterman and a sans serif font for Paris
- The W logo on the top of the pen has rough edges, and appears to be stamped on rather than an integral part of the pen
I'm not necessarily opposed to buying replicas of high end pens, but not for the same price as the genuine pen!
