Waterman (France) - Jules Verne
(The pens above, are the Ballpoint version)
The Waterman Jules Verne pens come in 2 designs. The images are reminiscent of 3 of the books written by Jules Verne. (see above):
Top: Red and Blue, a combination of From the Earth to the Moon and Five Weeks in a Balloon
Bottom: Green/Grey Colour, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
When boxed, the box design is as below:
(Waterman, Paris, Jules Verne Pen, Fountain Pen Box)
Above is the Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea variation of the Fountain pen.
Above is the From the Earth to the Moon / Five Weeks in a Balloon variation of the Fountain pen.
Waterman (France) - Phileas
The following 2 pens, are what Waterman has named the "Phileas" model.
The designs on the 2 pens are very simple, and bear no relationship to Phileas Fogg.
The Pens are available as Fountain Pens, or as Roller Ball Pens.
They are connected to Jules Verne in Name only, and frankly, though a nice pen,
they are not worth the effort, from a Verne point of view!
