Waterman Emerald Green Patrician
Waterman introduced the Patrician in 1929 just at the start of the Great Depression. The timing couldn’t have been worse since the pen sold for the astronomical price of $10. The pen contained many hand-made parts that raised the manufacturing cost. Patricians were not actively manufactured after 1936.
Patricians were expensive to make because they contained many hand-made parts. The pen’s design looked back to the opulent pre-Depression era. Competitors produced modern designs, like the Parker Vacumatic, that were both cheaper and more innovative than the Patrician. Relatively few Patricians were made, given the high manufacturing cost and the low demand during the Depression. This explains why it cost so much to buy a Patrician today.

Nexus Minimal Fountain Pen. Crowdfunding FP project.

Sometimes less is more. Stripping an object of all its non-essential features can deliver a more direct, raw, uninhibited experience. It’s like shooting with a film camera or driving a sports car. It is more uncompromising, yet infinitely more authentic and exhilarating.

The goal of this project was to uncover the essence of the writing instrument, to simplify it, keeping only that which was strictly necessary, in order to obtain the purest writing experience possible.We wanted to create a pen that would allow your creativity to flow unhindered.
