The Man, or in French, Le Man series of fountain pens was produced from 1983 until 1999, a very long run that was commemorative of Waterman's first 100 years in operations. Le Man, whether 100 or the slimmer 200 produced in the mid-1980s, came in several flavors from the standard resin over brass, glossy black, chased black, and in luxe solid silver and gold models. The commemorations are noted in the cylindrical shape, the barrel rings, the V-shaped clip.
These are, in a word, outstanding pens. Their 18k gold nibs write wonderfully, and even with their substantial weight, the Man is perfectly balanced. The entire Man line used a converter filler.
